Shirts that require logo embroidery or number patches may take 1-2 weeks to process and so delivery may be slower than normal. Due to high demand and the need for facemasks our embroiderer has a backlog of work and so shirt embroidery may be delayed as a result.

We thank you for your support and patience while we prepare your orders for delivery. We will update you once your order is ready to be shipped.

WIMBLEDON HORNETS F.C.

The earliest record of the Wimbledon Hornets Football Club is that published in ‘Bell’s Life in London’ on 4th November 1865, describing a match against Richmond Football Club. It was played on Saturday, 28th October 1865 and Richmond won by two goals.

The title of ‘Wimbledon Hornets’ was first adopted in the winter of 1868 but by 1874 the club changed its name to Wimbledon RFC. It has been suggested that they dispensed with the Hornets for a less whimsical name when L J Maton, who wrote the first laws of the game, became president of the Rugby Football Union.

WIMBLEDON HORNETS ceased to exist in 1874.
