Short History of London Legends Football Club
The birth of the idea came from Assad, he saw where football in the UK was going and wanted to create something different. He worked with a friend to come up with the design of the badge. The badge is a symbol of English football, the English football team’s badge has three lions on their shirt and this is what they are known for. Assad used this ideal to create the London Legends badge: three lions, but the third lion being a crown, to represent the monarchy.
Assad and Trisha came together as co-founders to create the club as we know it today. They created the digital design of the badge, the website and everything that was needed to get the club up and running.
This year the club set up their first two teams and registered with Selkent league. They started off with only two teams: under 14s and under 12s. This year the under 14s went on to win the league and get promoted to the B league in their first ever season together, coached by Assad.
This year the club went from only two teams to six teams and it was instantly a success. The club received a huge amount of interest and received its first ever sponsor from Shah Health. The club’s teams went on to do very well and four out of the six teams went through to the Selkent league cup final and our under 15s (coached by Emmanuel) finished the season off third in the table, reached the cup final and got promoted to the A league. Also in this year, our under 15 second team (through what was a difficult season) pulled it through and took home the Selkent shield cup as Season 2018/19 winners.
The club went from six teams to sixteen teams in three different leagues. London Legends set up their first ever men’s and ladies’ teams. London Legends expanded their soccer school offering and all of their coaches achieved the FA Level 1 qualification. Assad was awarded the Sporting Achieving Award from the Greenwich council for the club’s outstanding achievement with youth football in the Greenwich borough.
This is the year the club became a Charter Standard Club, an award that recognises clubs “who can be proud to be places where people want to play. These are the clubs who demonstrate they offer well-run and sustainable football. Clubs who achieve Charter Standard status are proud to prioritise qualified coaching and safeguarding as well as the values of The FA’s Respect campaign as part of their game.” This year the club went from 16 teams to 19 teams. Our under 13s finished this season top of their table and would have taken home the league if it was not for coronavirus.
