Hillingdon Borough (Yiewsley)

Founded in 1872 as Yiewsley F.C., Hillingdon Borough were opponents of the Lilywhites in the Southern League until 1985. The first of those matches had been in 1958 when they were still known as Yiewsley F.C. That year both they clubs were making their debut in the expanded Southern League. Whereas City finished in the top eleven teams of the Southern Zone and so played in the following season's premier division, they did not far so well and actually finished bottom of the group of seventeen teams. In 1964, following the establishment of the London Borough of Hillingdon, they changed their name from Yiewsley F.C. to Hillingdon Borough. Hillingdon Borough F.C., who's ground was In Falling Lane, Yiewsley and former managers included a future Peterborough boss, Barry Fry, basically disappeared in 1985 when incorporated into Burnham Football Club which allowed Burnham to take their place in the Southern League.

The current Hillingdon Borough Club have no links with the old one except for the name, having been known until 1990 as Bromley Park Ramgers.
