The club has 2 senior teams and 8 youth teams. The First Team are currently members of the Southern Combination Football League and compete in Premier Division , whilst the Reserves play in the Premier Division of the Hampshire Development League. The club was established in 1946 by a merger of Midhurst, whose ground had been used to build a school on, and Easebourne, who had lost several officials and players during the World War II. They joined the West Sussex League and went on to win the title in 1955–56, 1962–63 and 1964–65, as well as the Malcolm Simmonds Memorial Cup in 1959–60. After the top division was renamed the Premier Division, the club won the league again in 1967 –68, the Bareham Cup in 1970–71 and the Malcolm Simmonds Memorial Cup in 1973– 74. They won the Premier Division and Malcolm Simmonds Memorial Cup double in 1976–77 and retained the cup the following season, before winning another league and cup double in 1979–80. Although an application to join the Sussex County League was rejected in 1980, they were accepted into the league the following year, becoming members of Division Two. In their first season in Division Two, Midhurst & Easebourne were runners-up, earning promotion to Division One. The club finished bottom of Division One in 1986–87 and were relegated back to Division Two. They won the Division Two Cup in 1988–89, beating Newhaven 5–3 on penalties in a replay. The club returned to Division One after finishing second in 1991–92, but were relegated back to Division Two at the end of the following season. A second successive relegation in 1993–94 saw them drop into Division Three. Although they won Division Three at the first attempt, the club were relegated back to the division at the end of the 1997–98 season. In 1998–99 Midhurst & Easebourne finished bottom of Division Three and were relegated to the Premier Division of the West Sussex League. They were Premier Division champions and Centenary Cup winners in 2001–02 and were promoted back to Division Three of the Sussex County League. The following season saw them win the Division Three title and the Division Three Cup, earning promotion to Division Two. Although they finished bottom of Division Two in 2009–10, the club avoided being relegated to Division Three. In 2015 the Sussex County League was renamed the Southern Combination, with Division Two becoming Division One. Midway through the 2018-19 season, the club found themselves bottom of Division One and appointed Liphook United Manager, Andrew 'Lemmy' Ewen as First Team Manager, who subsequently saved the club from relegation to Division Two. The 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons were both ended early and deemed null and void due to COVID-19, with the club sitting 6th and 4th in respective seasons.

The 2021-22 saw a return of success to the club. With the first tema winning promotion to the premier division via the playoffs and also winning the league cup. A real triumph for Lemmy and his team after having the two previous seasons curtailed when in strong positions. The reserve team also enjoyed success with a second place finish, securing promotion to their respective premier division. With last seasons achievements, and subsequent promotion to step 5 football we now find ourselves competing in the Fa Cup for the first time in our history. 2022-23 is sure to be an exciting historical season for everyone involved in the club and town.


MANAGER’S MESSAGE LEMMY

Good Evening welcome back to The Rotherfield where we have consecutive Home games this week. First up in the RUR Cup I’d like to welcome tonight’s visitors Mile Oak along with the match officials. Firstly I must apologise to those who made the trip to The Withdean Stadium on Saturday. It was an embarrassing day for us, in fact was our worst performance in my time managing this club, something I’m not use to and won’t except. Moving on tonight we welcome Mile Oak who always give us a tough game. I’m expecting a good reaction, the last 2 league games have not matched the standards this group have set. Squad wise we’ve got a few players returning Billy Connor is massive for us we’ve missed him so much since he got Injured and went travelling not just on the pitch but also in the dressing room. Jordan Stallibrass returns from suspension, he has settled in really well since he joined us. Skipper Harry Giles is back following his sickness bug. Seamus Tilley will step up from the Reserves he’s been a standout for them, trained really well with us fully deserving an opportunity. Lewis Hamilton won’t be pushed tonight I’m expecting he will be fit for Saturday. Will Essai is still recovering from a chest infection, we won’t make a decision until Monday regarding him. All of a sudden we’re in really good shape, lads now are playing with a bit of pressure to reach levels I require. Enjoy the game

Lemmy

JOSH COOPER 41 Mile Oak FC was formed in 1960 and started in Division eight of the Brighton, Hove & District Football League and won the division at the first attempt, and was promoted to Division six. Further promotion followed in the 1963–64 season when

the club finished as runners up in Division six and the club was promoted again the following season. The club's first attempt at Division four saw them finish as champions, however four seasons later the club was back in Division five. A season later they were back in Division four and the 1971–72 campaign saw them finish as runnersup and promotion to Division two. The club had instant success in Division two finishing as champions, a feat they repeated the next season in Division one. The 1980–81 season saw the club become winners of the Brighton League. In 1986 made the decision to leave the Brighton, Hove & District Football League to become a senior club in the Sussex County League, and an application was made to join the Southern Counties Combination League, which was a feeder into the Sussex 'pyramid'. After just one season, the club won promotion to Division Three of the County League as champions. After five seasons, promotion was gained to Division Two in 1991–92, as runners-up to Hassocks, and then to Division One as champions in 1994–95. They stayed in this division for three seasons, and were relegated back to Division two in 1997–98 In 2005–06 they won some silverware after defeating Sidlesham 1–0 in the Final of the Division Two Challenge Cup.
