History

Binfield FC, founded in 1892, has a rich history rooted in its local brickworks and agricultural community. Initially competing in the Ascot and District League, the club enjoyed early success, including multiple Fielden Cup wins since 1924. During WWII, they triumphed in the Great Western Combination League and won the Berks and Bucks Junior Cup and the Maidenhead Norfolkian Cup.

In 1950, Binfield joined the Reading and District League, achieving Premier Division status in 1972. A significant move to Hill Farm Lane in 1980 involved transforming a field into their current ground, complete with a member-built clubhouse. Success continued with Division titles in the Reading and District League during the late 1980s.

The 1990s saw the club’s entry into the Charrington Chiltonian League, with notable title wins. A 2001 merger with Binfield Forest FC expanded the club significantly, leading to FA Charter status in 2007 and regional community club awards in 2013.

Recent achievements include Hellenic League titles, memorable FA Cup and FA Vase runs, and a move to the Isthmian League South Centre. The club’s most successful FA Vase campaign culminated in a Wembley final in 2020. The 2021/22 season saw Binfield achieve their highest ever league position (6th) in the Isthmian South Central, coupled with commendable performances in the FA Cup and Trophy.
