Slough

The Lilywhites have played two Slough teams: Slough Town and Slough Centre.

Wexham Park Stadium, Slough


Slough Town

The Lilywhites first played Slough Town, when they were known as Slough F.C, before the 2nd World War in the Spartan League. Since then they have met in the F.A. Cup and the Southern League Cup. Founded in 1890 as Slough F,C., they played for many years at the Dolphin Stadium. Then at the outbreak of the Second World War they entered into a ground share with Maidenhead United at York Road having been forced to vacant the Dolphin Stadium. Then in 1943 they agreed to merge with neighbor's Slough Centre to become Slough United, the new club then played at the Centre Stadium before going their separate ways in 1947. They then returned to the Dolphin Stadium as Slough Town F.C., only to move to the Wexham Park Stadium in 1973. In 2003 they were forced out of the Wexham Park Stadium, by its owners, and as a result they entered into a ground share with Windsor & Eton at Stag Meadow. Since this agreement ended in 2007, they have ground shared with Beaconsfield at Holloway Park
