From London to Leipzig, Clapton CFC have six pre-season games to warm up for the new Middlesex County Football League season.
Clapton CFC are delighted to be heading to Germany on August 10th to help our friends at Roter Stern Leipzig mark their 20th anniversary.
The friendlies are now over – finally – and Clapton CFC signed off pre-season with a narrow win and a first clean sheet. With Clapton CFC’s temporary new home The Stray Dog having been booked by another team, the game had to be played at noon on a 3G pitch nearby with no space for […]
Just to clarify some important information about this Saturday’s game vs London Samurai Rovers. This was arranged as a practice friendly against a team from our league because we still don’t know what to expect ahead of our first season. It’s an early kick-off on a 3G pitch, not at the Stray Dog, and there’s […]
An amazing afternoon for Clapton CFC’s first ‘home’ game as a determined Wanderers made it a very competitive friendly in front of a big crowd.

Clapton CFC fans have pulled together over the last month to spruce our temporary home of Wadham Lodge in Walthamstow. We want to make the spectator area as accessible as possible ahead of our first home game, the friendly against Wanderers FC on August 25th, and the upcoming Middlesex County Football League season. The first […]
Epping Town are on a mission to go back to the glory days of the Seventies and Eighties. In the early 1980s they disappeared due to financial problems, despite the team reaching the Isthmian League, basking in their best ever FA Cup and FA Vase runs and playing the likes of West Ham and Spurs […]
Clapton notched up a second win in 7 days on Saturday, with an impressive victory over MCFL Div 1 counterparts, NW London, at the vast New River Stadium. Our second visit to North London in a week saw Geoff Ocran’s team put in arguably their most complete performance of pre-season to date against well drilled […]
This Tuesday, Clapton CFC’s pre-season schedule moves up a gear with the chance of lifting some silverware against Enfield Town. The venue is the beautiful, Grade II-listed Queen Elizabeth II Stadium, which is holding its second cup final of the summer, having already hosted the ConIFA World Cup for non-FIFA affiliated regions. Enfield Town and […]
