The Turbines

Peterborough Sports Football Club, nicknamed “The Turbines,” is a non-league football club based in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire.

Established in 1908, they currently compete in the Vanarama National League North, which is part of the sixth tier of English football. The team calls Lincoln Road their home ground.

Founded in 1908 as Brotherhoods Engineering Works, Peterborough Sports Football Club began competitive play in the Northants League in 1919, winning the title in their first season. Their most prominent early player, Victor Watson, later became West Ham United’s record goalscorer. The club experienced limited success for many years, with sporadic title wins until the 1990s, when they achieved a resurgence under manager Stephen “Tommy” Cooper.

In the 21st century, under Jimmy Dean’s management, the club won several titles, including the UCL League Cup and the Hinchingbrooke Cup, and set a league record in the UCL Premier Division. Their progression through the football leagues continued, with notable performances in the FA Cup.

The club reached the National League North in the 2021-22 season, finishing satisfactorily in its debut season at this level. In 2022-23, Tim Woodward took over as the club owner, initiating significant infrastructure improvements and renaming the stadium to PIMS Park.
