The History of Ashford Town (Middlesex) F.C.
This small club was formed as Ashford Albion back in 1958 and they joined Division 2 of the Hounslow and District League. They finished second in their inaugural season, meaning they were promoted to Division 1. The following season, they came second once again, which saw them earn promotion to the Premier Division. In 1964, the club adopted the name that they are known by today. However, they had to pull out of the Premier Division in 1964, resulting in their relegation to Division 2. However, they stay in Division 2 last only one season as they finished third and were promoted to Division 1 again. They were eventually promoted to Premier Division A, which they won in 1974-75.
In 1982, they were founding members of the Surrey Premier League. They never won this league, but they did win the Surrey Premier Cup in 1990. The very same year they became part of the Combined Counties League, which they won for the first time during the 1993-94 season.

They stayed in this league until they were relegated to Division 1 Central of the Southern League in 2010. At the end of the 2013-14 season they were bottom of the table, which meant that they were relegated to the Combined Counties League.
