In 2014, an incredibly unfit group of mates decided to form a football team called Purley Saint Germain (formerly known as Caterham and Lingfield FC).
After a shambolic first 2014/15 that saw the team finish bottom of the Redhill & District 4th Division on 2 points the team has improved greatly.
The 2015/16 season started in similar fashion to the last with PSG sitting at the bottom of the 3rd Division at Christmas. Shrewd transfers and an improved team ethic resulted in PSG winning 6 of their last 7 games of the season and finishing mid-table.
Numerous teams folding and poor weather hampered PSG’s 2016/17 season as the team struggled to put a good run of form together. Despite this, season highlights included victories against Gatwick Albion & Warlingham Reserves.
We enter the 2017/18 in high hopes off the back of a strong pre-season which saw Purley win 2 of their 3 friendlies scoring 9 goals in the process.
