Welcome to the
Tudor Park FC
History Site

by Rob Healy

As a supporter of Feltham FC from the early 1980s through to the current Bedfont & Feltham FC, I chose to embark on a project to gather as much information on Tudor Park FC as I can, and to publish this on my website to help commemorate the seventieth anniversary of the reformation of Tudor Park FC - 1946.

I originally set this site up in 2015 to commemorate the formation of Tudor Park FC in 1946. Tudor Park went on to become Feltham FC and they in turn are now called Bedfont & Feltham FC following an amalgamation in 2012.

Thank you for viewing my website!










The first Tudor Park FC was formed in the middle 1930s. In those days, the team consisted of residents on the local housing estate, and the ground on which they played was an allotment site adjoining Clifton Avenue and Elmwood Avenue. It is regrettable to record that after two seasons, it was disbanded.

War at this time was in the air and with the outbreak of hostilities came the forerunners to the second Tudor Park in the name of Hanworth Corinthians which throughout the war, kept the game alive under the most exacting and difficult conditions. With the end of the war, the name of Tudor Park was again adopted in 1946 and this team eventually became members of the West Middlesex Sunday League. It is noted that throughout its existence, Tudor Park played at Rectory Meadow in Hanworth, and at the Ordnance Depot in Feltham.

In 1949-50 the club became affiliated to the Middlesex County Football Association and played Saturday football under the County’s jurisdiction as members of the Staines and District League. They won the League title and cup in 1950-51.
By the mid 1950s the club had two teams competing for honours in the Hounslow and District League and they were runners-up in the Premier Division in both 1956-57 and 1957-58; as well as finalists in the Jubilee Cup in 1958-59.

Continental tours were arranged: Belgium in 1956 and 1962; France in 1957 and a tour of Austria and Italy in 1958.

Tudor Park were elected to the Parthenon League for the commencement of season 1959-60 where they stayed until the end of season 1962/63 when the name Feltham Football Club was adopted upon the club being granted Senior Status by the Middlesex County Football Association.
"After three unsuccessful applications, Tudor Park FC has been granted senior status by the Middlesex County FA thus becoming the first club in the Feltham area to be accepted into the senior amateur ranks. The name of the club will shortly be changed to Feltham FC" (this is what the Middlesex Chronicle reported back in the spring of 1963).

Feltham FC played on the Glebelands playing fields before moving into Feltham Sports Arena in 1963. The Arena’s grandstand was officially opened in 1966 by inaugural Mayor of the London Borough of Hounslow, Edward Pauling JP. The club was later forced to abandon the Arena in 2004 due to constant vandalism. The site is now undergoing transformation by the London Borough of Hounslow.
In 1990, Feltham FC in turn merged with local Southern League side Hounslow and the side competed under the name of Feltham and Hounslow Borough until the end of the 1994-95 season when it was decided to change the name back to Feltham FC. The club then continued to play under the name of Feltham FC until 2012 when they amalgamated with Bedfont Football and Social Club to become Bedfont and Feltham Football Club.

Seventy years on, Bedfont and Feltham Football Club are affiliated to the Middlesex Football Association and are currently members of the Combined Counties Football League. The club also has a Sunday side and several Youth teams under its banner. By a small token, the Tudor Park legacy lives on: The crest of the combined club features both the peacock of Bedfont and the Tudor rose which was of course part of Tudor Park’s crest, which had also been the crest of Feltham Football Club.

Notes to accompany the history: As a supporter of Feltham FC from the early 1980s through to the current Bedfont & Feltham FC, I have chosen to embark on a project to gather as much information on Tudor Park FC as I can, and to publish this on my website, www.tudorparkfc.me.uk to help commemorate the seventieth anniversary of the reformation of Tudor Park FC - 1946.

Anyone who has information, programmes or results can contact me and I will add the information to the website. I am already indebted to former player Mick Segger for providing me with my initial batch of documents and photographs, along with a blazer badge depicting the original Tudor Park crest. Also to Richard Seuke, who’s father Willi was goal keeper for Tudor Park and went on to become a stalwart at the club right through to the late 2000s; and to former Feltham FC manager Duncan Holden for providing images of his father’s Tudor Park football shirt.

I had some commemorative enamel badges produced, (see image below). If anybody would like to purchase one, please contact me. They cost £4 including postage. Further purchases on the same order will be charged at £3 each.

The Tudor Park commemorative badge. (Actual size is approximately 1 inch in diameter)

The Chronicle newspaper and their website have published an article on the history of Tudor Park FC.

Local journalist Tom Moore has compiled an article from some information and photographs I sent him. It was in the printed paper in 2016. A link to the article on the website is below.
