History

Upminster Park Rovers are a Football Association Charter Standard club based in Upminster, Essex. We are one of the largest junior football clubs in Havering with over 30 teams in all age groups up to the age of 18. We compete in both the Echo and Chelmsford leagues. Our club colours are black and white stripe shirts, black shorts and red socks.

We started in 1965 when Dennis Wyman and Jim Sadler decided to start a team for their sons and quickly formed a team with boys from the local area. We joined the Echo League in 1966 and became the first team to play matches at Hall Lane playing fields in Upminster. The cost of hiring the pitch for that first season was £5.The next season another team joined the club managed by Ted Butler and recorded the club’s first success in winning the under 11 cup in their first season by beating Basildon Boys in the final at a packed Hornchurch Stadium. 

As the club expanded over the following seasons so did the area from which it drew its members. We now have members from all over Havering and from many neighbouring areas. Over the years we have had many committed club members and committee members who have helped the club expand and develop. All have contributed to making the club what it is today. Dennis Wyman, one of the two founder members, is Chairman and Treasurer of the club and takes a very active part in the running of the club.  In January 2006 we achieved FA Charter Standard status.

It was our 50th anniversary in 2016 and we held an enjoyable fun day at Hall Lane. Click here to see pictures from the day.
