The club, one of the oldest in the country, and which has now been in existence for 136 years, received a well deserved recognition award from the FA for 125 years playing football during 2011.
Collliers Wood United FC was founded in 1874 and the early years of their existence were spent in the Wimbledon and Sutton leagues before moving on to the Surrey Intermediate League (Southern Division).
During the late sixties and early seventies, the club were members of the Surrey Senior League for a short time, playing in the newly formed division one where they won the league title in 1969/70. The reserves won their division in 1970/71 going undefeated.
Over they years, The Woods have reached a number of Surrey FA Cup Finals. In 1988/89 they lost 1-2 to Bradbank Sports in the Intermediate Cup Final. In 1991/92 they beat Woking & Horsell 4-0 in the final of the same competition. The reserves reached the final of the 1988/89 and 1989/90 Lower Junior Cup but were beaten on both occasions.
The local recreation ground prevented the progress of the club due to the limited facilities and a search for a new ground was launched. Adequate facilities were found at Wibbandune Sports Ground in 1991 and the ground has steadily improved since then.
2001/2 saw the club enter the Surrey County Senior League where they finished a creditable 5th. The following season, they finished as runners up.
In 2002/3, the league amalgamated with the Combined Counties League and the club were founder members of the new division 1 where they finished as runners up and were promoted to the Premier Division.
They have continued to improve. In 2004/5, they finished 14th of the 24 clubs. The following season, they finished fourth and had a fine FA Vase run, beating Chichester City United, Raynes Park Vale and Greenwich Borough, before losing to VCD Athletic in the 2nd round proper.
In 2006/7 they entered the FA Cup for the first time, defeating Chipstead after a replay before succumbing to Worthing 0-3.
After a brief ground share at Croydon FC, the club moved back to Wibbandune where recent ground improvements include the addition of excellent flood-lighting, a new covered terrace and a 102 seat stand have secured their Premier Division status.
Colliers Wood United also has teams in the Suburban League, and the Southern Youth League.
