• London Rangers F.C.

    London Rangers FC is a football club based in Wembley in the London Borough of Brent, United Kingdom.


    The club was formed in 1938 and was originally named Ruislip Manor.[1] After the war the club joined the London League, finishing as runners-up under

    player-manager Charlie Drinkwater in the 1951–52 season. [2] The club left the London league in 1958 to join the Spartan league and stayed in that league until the 1965–66 season upon when they joined the Athenian league. [2][3] Starting in Division two they remained there for seven seasons, they were promoted as Champions in the 1972–73 season. Another 12 seasons passed and the club left the Athenian league, and joined the Isthmian League in Division Two South, winning promotion to Division one in the 1992–93 season. At the end of the 1995–96 season the club would have been relegated to Division Two, but left Isthmian League and joined the Spartan League, becoming founder members of the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division South, the following season.

    At the end of the 2007–08 season the club was relegated to Division one, and became homeless after losing their Grosvenor Vale ground, because of the financial problems of the social club there. [1][4] The football club's committee resigned due to the loss of the ground, and Terry Springer from the Tokyngton Community Centre took on the old club debts, and changed the club's name to Tokyngton Manor. A new ground was found at the Viking Sports ground in Greenford. During the 2009/10 season the club had to postpone several matches due to an unsafe ground. Despite not being responsible for the upkeep of the ground, they were punished with a one-year ban from the Spartan South Midlands League, so moved to the Hayes Middlesex Sunday League Premier Division for the 2010–11 season, which they won. [5] The club rejoined the Spartan South Midlands League for the 2011–12 season, moving to their new home of Spratleys Meadow, ground sharing with

    Amersham Town. [6]

    The club sat out of the 2012-13 season, and played in the Middlesex County League in Division Two at the start of the 2013-14 season before folding.

    During the summer of 2017, the club entered an affiliation agreement with Rangers FC in Glasgow and was rebranded as London Rangers FC. The club played one season in the Hellenic League Division Two East before moving sideways into the Middlesex County Football League.
