The Rams

Beaconsfield Town Football Club, nicknamed “The Rams,” is a non-league football club based in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire.

Established in 1921, they currently compete in the Pitching In Southern Football League Division One Central, which is part of the eighth tier of English football. The team calls Holloways Park their home ground.

Beaconsfield Town FC, formed in 2017, traces its origins to Beaconsfield SYCOB, established in 1994 from a merger between Beaconsfield United and Slough Youth Centre Old Boys. Beaconsfield United dated back to 1921, while Slough Youth Centre fielded its first team in 1938. The merger occurred due to both clubs facing challenges: Slough Youth Centre Old Boys lacked proper ground facilities, and United struggled on and off the field. Initially competing in the London Spartan Premier Division under Chairman Fred Deanus, Beaconsfield SYCOB achieved several top-five finishes before winning the league in 2000/01 but were denied promotion due to lease technicalities. After another league win in 2003/04, they moved up to the Southern Football League.

In the following years, Beaconsfield SYCOB experienced ups and downs, including relegation in 2006/07. The appointment of Jamie Jarvis as manager led to a successful season, winning the Spartan South Midlands Premier Division, Berks & Bucks FA Senior Trophy, and Premier Division League Cup. Despite frequent managerial changes and fluctuating league positions, the club managed commendable achievements, such as finishing fifth in the 2011-12 season under Byron Walton and making the playoffs. Gary Meakin’s tenure starting in 2013 saw the team finish eighth and reach the League Cup Quarter Finals, showcasing resilience and potential despite limited resources and player changes.

Rebranded as Beaconsfield Town in 2017 with Gary Meakin returning as manager, the club won the Evo-Stik League South, East title in their first season. Competing at Level 3 for the first time, they finished 12th in the Evo-Stik League South Premier South division and reached the FA Trophy First Round. The truncated 2019/20 season marked the club’s expansion, establishing an Academy and an Under 18 team, with future plans to add more youth sides, demonstrating a commitment to long-term growth both on and off the pitch.
