Caterham Pumas were founded in July 1998 from an after school club. From a single team of mixed ages we embarked on our first season. Over the next two seasons we grew to an impressive ten teams playing in two leagues from under 8’s upwards. From day one, we have always been a strong advocate of mini soccer and concentrated on this with all the teams starting at this level. Constant development, along with summer training and open days encourage all those who want to play to do so.
We have quickly grown into a recognised football club and currently have twenty teams, spanning over ten age groups competing in the Epsom and Ewell League, Surrey Youth League, Surrey Womens And Girls League and the Tandridge League. We also have two adult teams which play in the Redhill and District We have formed a veteran team made up of coaches and parents of players who love the game of football. Our first game was played on Wednesday 1st August 2012 against Sevenoak Yellow and Pumas won 3-1.
With the Surrey Football Association, we have worked hard to secure our own ground and commit ourselves to a long term future for the children of Caterham and the club. We have two girls football team who compete in the Surrey women and girls league. We are also committed to providing soccer for pre school ages and run a successful soccer centre.
The club are also looking at ways to provide football for all and have a coach who has completed a course on coaching disabled footballer. In the future the club is looking to start a team to complete in the Surrey disability league tournaments.
