Hellenic League

Note Holyport FC was originally founded in 1934 and was reformed in 1956 after disbanding during WW2. On reforming the club played on a pitch in Windsor Road at Bray, before finding a new home at Braywick Park where they played for three seasons from 1998.

The club no longer plays home matches within the parish following another move, this time to a new ground, Summerleaze Village in North Maidenhead.  Known as “the ground with a view” by virtue of its rural location but also the view of Cliveden House behind the dugouts on the near touchline, the playing area is little more than a railed off pitch at present, although there is substantial scope for development and there is an ambitious air about the club.

The pitch is actually a good couple of hundred yards from the car park adjacent to the cricket pavilion which will eventually be found after a long drive up a narrow lane after passing through the main gates. The football club is well signposted however, and there are portakabins as dressing rooms and refreshment facilities available.

Holyport’s claret shirts and green shorts are a humorous nod in the direction of PORTugal who of course have a slightly better reason for their choice of kit. DB
