Club History Edit
The Eagles won League 2 (G2) at their first attempt thanks to a lot of Bot Teams and hotshot striker Luc Serrano, who bagged 25 goals in the promotion season. Promotion was secured 6 matches before the end of the season and went on to win the league by 27 points. This heralded a promotion to League 1 (G) where the Eagles came second to Reel Madras, despite scoring 119 goals and having the two top scorers in the division (Mitja Novak 33, Luc Serrano 32). However, the next season saw the Eagles promoted despite heavy pressure from Links FC, BIGTRUFFLE UTD and Calshot Corns. The Eagles unbelieveably stayed unbeaten and crowned the end of the season with a 1-0 win at Links thanks to then 16 year old Barclay Badcock's header.
Season 6 saw the Eagles brilliantly stay up after a gritty first season. They took points off every team except eventual champions Uranus Fire, including fabulous wins against FC Tunnel (0-1), Spankysallstars (1-2) and The Ollstars (4-0). Cobham's fantastic season was down to some excellent team performances and individuals to be singled out include keeper Md Golam Iqbal, who made 80 saves in the season, Carlo Ruiz, who netted no less than 27 times at a goal ratio of over a goal per game, and the consistency of defenders, Kendal Bass and Johnnie Samuelson. The Eagles picked up ten wins, six draws, and six defeats in the twenty-two game season, to finish in 6th place.
Season 7 was even better for the Eagles, ending up in 5th position, bettering last years finish. They signed Julius Bavio Arias, Gerardo Daniel Regueira Martinez, Luka Udovc, Jenica Farcas, Zdenko Grilc and Rasim Ekmecic to strengthen the side, as well as recruiting Teerawut Jirattijaroen and Anibal Barroca on loan. After a poor start, and a long injury to Jirattijaroen, the Eagles picked up and won unexpectedly at Worcester Park and Draconic Warriors F.C, 0-2 on both occasions. Despite not beating Cheam Stars United in the league, the Eagles beat the bitter local rivals by three points in the league as the Stars ended up 6th.
Cobham have now become veterans of the division, being present now for 6 seasons. After a strong Season 10, they will look to promote in Season 11 to compete in the Premiership.
The English National Cup was a route for success in Season 10, where Cobham made their furthest progress in the competition, reaching the quarter final before being beaten 2-0 by Premiership side Atletico De Madrid. Premiership oppositon have often spelt trouble for Cobham in the cup, having been beaten by United States Arsenal FC, Spankysallstars and Aliens twice in their history.
