History

Three Bridges Football Club was founded in 1901. The joined the Mid-Sussex Junior League in 1902. They subsequently played in both the East Grinstead & District and Redhill & District Leagues. The team was known as Three Bridges and Worth and then Three Bridges United in 1948 after the merger with The Southern Railway Sports Club..

They were founder members of the Sussex County League Division Two in 1952–53. [2] In 1953–54, the club were champions of Division Two and gained promotion to Division One. However, they only lasted one season at that level before returning to Division Two. The club's name reverted to Three Bridges in 1964, and in 1968–69, the club was promoted to Division One again, after finishing runners-up. [3]

Three Bridges were relegated again in 1973, but spent only one season in Division Two before returning after another runners-up spot. In 1977, the club was relegated again, this time for three seasons before returning after finishing runners-up for a third time. In the 1981–82 season, they reached the Third Round of the FA Vase. In 1985–86, Three Bridges were runners-up in Division One, and again in 1987–88 and 1988–89. In 1997, the club was relegated again to Division One, but returned two seasons later after a fourth Division Two runners-up place. The club finally secured its first Sussex County League Division One championship in 2011–12 and gained promotion to the Isthmian League Division One South. [3]
