Yeading. Not to be confused with Reading or wedding. Nope – this be a west London side, which Boro’ once came across. Of course, you’ll now better know this team as one of the two that merged to create Hayes & Yeading United back in 2007. The Ding (in their own right) were a team we first played right at the start of the 1991-2 Diadora League Division 1 season; going down to a 4-0 defeat at theirs. We got our record back on track after that; undefeated in the other six matches that make up our head-to-head.


Yeading: The Facts

Who are Yeading?

As far as the early days of a football club go, the Ding and Boro’ can claim to have trod similar paths. The main difference between the two, however, is how long those paths lasted. Let us explain. A ‘Yeading Football Club’ appears to have come into being in 1960 – but played at junior and intermediate level until the mid-1980s. For Boro’, the transition from junior to senior football took a mere three years – not quarter of a century. That’s if you see the 1979-80 Wallspan Combination campaign as Boro’s first foray into senior football.

After gaining senior status in 1984, Yeading went into the now-defunct London Spartan League – finishing second in the Senior Division at the first attempt. This took ’em into the Premier Division, where they again finished second at the first pop. A year later and the Ding were champions. That, it appears, was their cue to make a beeline for the Isthmian League. After a couple of mid-table finishes, the 1989-90 campaign was their most successful yet. Not only did the club secure the Division Two South title, but the FA Vase too.

Of course, that league title win took them into Division One for the first time. A season later, our Division Two North title saw us go up too – and it turns out Yeading were to be our first league fixture back in Division One! It was one to forget – after all, who gets wistful about a four-goal battering? Aye, that’s right – Yeading were not in the mood to give us a gentle ride on that August afternoon. Boro’, for their part, seemed to take the hint – and fast. We won the Division One title that season.

Yeading, meanwhile, fancied stepping up a gear too. The Ding ended up a distant-enough second behind us in 1991-2, but earned promotion too. So, up we both went to the Premier Division. And, at the third attempt, Boro’ finally landed one on the London outfit – winning 2-1 early on that term. Yeading found life tougher than us in the Premier Division, though. It was a long season culminating in a 19th place finish for them. Us, meanwhile, fared much better in seventh. Fast forward 12 months, and we were on our way to the Conference.
