Our History

Team Solent Men's Football

Solent's football programme was integrated into the Saturday club structure in the early 2000s. Team Solent Men's Football was accepted into the Southampton FA and in their first season pulled off an unprecedented treble - winning Southampton Junior Division 1, the Southampton Junior Cup and the Hampshire Junior Cup.

Team Solent continued to build on this winning start, reaching the Southampton Senior Cup final two seasons in a row, and winning it once more in the 2010/11 season. Winning the Hampshire Premier League Cup that same season added yet more silverware to the trophy cabinet.

Team Solent Men's Football has gone on to win the Southampton Senior Cup on a further two occasions, most recently in the 2015/16 season, beating Blackfield and Langley 2-0 in the final at Southampton FC's St Mary's Stadium.

Last year they took home the BUCS Western 6A League trophy with the 2nd and 3rd teams coming 1st and 2nd respectively.
