A WARM WELCOME...
Arundel Football Club is a football club based in Arundel, West Sussex, England. They are currently members of the Southern Combination Division 1 and play at Mill Road.
The club was established in 1889. They were founder members of the West Sussex Football League in 1896 and were placed in the Senior Division. They remained in the league until joining the Sussex County League in 1949. When the league gained a second division in 1952, they were placed in Division One. In 1957-58 they won Division One, and retained the title the following season.
In 1965–66 they club finished second-from-bottom of Division One and were relegated to Division Two. However, they made an immediate return to Division One as Division Two runners-up the following season, and went on to finish as Division One runners-up in 1968–69. This was repeated in the mid-1970s, when relegation in 1975–76 was followed by promotion in 1976–77, a season in which the club also won the Division Two Cup. Another relegation in 1982–83 resulted in another immediate return to Division One as Division Two runners up in 1983–84, with the club going on to win their third title in 1986–87, also claiming the league's Challenge Cup. In 1997–98 they finished bottom of Division One and were relegated to Division Two. Two seasons later they finished as runners-up in Division Two to earn promotion back to Division One.
In 2003–04 they won the Challenge Cup, and in 2008–09 finished as Division One runners-up. In 2013 the ground remained under water for months due to floods which hit southern England this caused massive damage and nearly finished the club, but we survived to fight another day. In 2015 the league was renamed the Southern Combination, with Division One becoming the Premier Division. Arundel, however, unfortunately couldn't avoid being relegated in the season 2018-19 after finishing second from bottom in the league, and will start the 2019-20 season in Division 1.
