Club History

Paulsgrove Football Club is a football club based in the Paulsgrove area of Portsmouth, Hampshire, England.

We are affiliated to the Hampshire Football Association and are an FA Charter Standard club.

The club was formed in 1964, and we joined the Hampshire League Division Two in 1987, playing in that league’s Division One between 1993 and 1996.

We are currently members of the Hampshire Premier League Senior Division.

In 1987–88 we joined the Hampshire League in division Two, five seasons later we gained promotion to division one in the 1992–93 season.
We stayed for a few seasons but were relegated back to division two in 1995–96.

Three seasons later we were champions of Division two in the 1998–99 season. However instead of being promoted the club remained in the second tier, now named Division one, of The Hampshire League after it was re-organised for the 1999–2000 season.

In 2004–05 we then left the Hampshire league to join the newly formed Division three of the Wessex league, two seasons later this division was renamed division two.

At the end of the 2006–07 season, Paulsgrove left the Wessex league to become one of the founding members of the Hampshire Premier League. In October 2007 we club gained a bye in the Hampshire Cup under somewhat unusual circumstances: drawn at home to play Kingston Arrows (a side composed entirely of long-stay prisoners), our opponents were unable to fulfill the fixture. We continue to play in the Hampshire Premier league and during our stay in the league have won the senior league cup once in the 2008–09 season.

The 2017-18 seasons saw the us win the Hampshire Premier league senior division and the Hampshire intermediate cup.

We play our games at Paulsgrove Social Club, Marsden Road, Paulsgrove, Portsmouth PO6 4JB.
