AFC Forestlake becomes AFC Totton Sunday, competing in the City of Southampton Sunday Football League
Sam Conway, Charles Lodge and Marc Watts inherited AFC Forestlake in the 2020/21 season.
Under Sam's stewardship, the team went on a 9-match unbeaten run, losing just once the entire season. This confirmed Forestlake as Division 2 Champions in the City of Southampton Sunday Football League (CoSSFL) and earned them promotion to the top division.
Although the squad already boasts talented footballers, Sam has carefully selected and acquired three new additions for the 2021/22 season, with the side now full of experience and the right attitude to maintain and further the team's success.
Our sponsors, who have supported us since day one, are:
Sharon Eyre | Gentlemen's League Barbers | 18 Rumbridge Street | Totton | Southampton | SO40 9DP
Craig Longhurst | Hurst Auto Assistance | Unit 6 | Brookes Hill Industrial Estate | Southampton | SO40 2QT
Without this valuable sponsorship, the team's success and the great times we have enjoyed as a result would not have been possible. So, we are delighted that both Sharon and Craig have decided to continue their support by sponsoring AFC Totton Sunday for the 2021/22 season.
We contacted AFC Totton mid-way through last season to try take our Sunday team to the next level, especially for the lads that give 100% every week. And we managed to secure a deal with the club that will see us wearing the same home, away and off-pitch kit as the Stags senior team, as well as enjoying their facilities for our post-match get togethers.
This season, we compete in two cup competitions, as well as for the CoSSFL Div.1 title - and we intend to win the lot!
We have a tightly-knit group but, like AFC Totton, we are also very keen on helping out the community. As a team, we invite people to come and watch us play on a Sunday morning - bring the kids, enjoy the football and the park facilities; it's a welcome opportunity for people to get out of their beds on a Sunday morning and take in the fresh air, which is great for mental well-being and building community. Our home matches are usually at Testwood Recreation Ground on Salisbury Road in Totton and we look forward to seeing you on matchday!
Keep up with AFC Totton Sunday...
