The USRC Football Section was founded in 1995 over a few drinks and football talk in the Club’s Gunner's bar – a tradition that has long continued! Since that initial idea took shape nearly 20 years ago, USRC now boasts over 70 players and three teams: Gunners playing in the Legal League Division 1, 1911 playing in the Legal Legends League and Vitesse, our ‘social’ team.
Since joining the Legal League in 2008 USRC has never looked back, eventually forming two teams – Power and Experience – the former finishing in third place in Division One during 2013-14 via an open, attacking style delivered from a ‘United Nations’ of players from five of the world’s continents.
USRC Gunners, the rebranded USRC first team hopes to light up the League (sorry) with dazzling football (groan) from a multi-cultural mix of young players and the odd “master” to show them how it’s done. As always, we hope to be there or thereabouts when the trophies are being handed out, but if not, we’ll entertain the crowds anyway.
USRC looks forward to welcoming everyone to Friday night football at King’s Park and extends this welcome to all teams after every game to come down to the Club’s Gunners Bar which is just around the corner. Here all players can enjoy some beer, food and in-depth, post-match, (...ahem...), “analysis” in true pub footballer style.
