The Club was established in 1989.
As none of the current committee members were associated with the club when it was founded, it was great to receive an email from Jamie Durkin who said...
"Amazing to see how far Milford Pumas have moved on...great to see. I would like to add a bit to your club history if possible - Milford Pumas was set up by Kenneth Durkin and Mick Hudson in 1989, taking a promising team from Farncombe Boys Football. Kenny and Mick decided on having the home pitch at Milford hospital as Kenny was the hospital manager at the time. They worked throughout the summer to make a pretty uninhabitable field into a playing surface for local lads...including me. They were lucky to recieve help from local volunteers during the summer months. The name Milford Pumas was put to a vote along with others but came out as the winner because of the areas legendary sightings of large cats. Initially the patron of the club was Lady Astor of Milford who was more than happy to help with some running costs of the boys football club, on our opening season we recieved a letter of wishes and encouragement from Sir Bobby Charlton"
I was in the original team as an 11 year old and am absolutely delighted to see that it is still running and doing so well. I’m sure my dad would be happy to see the club is still going strong 20 years on...'
The 2009/2010 Season saw Pumas breakdown the walls and launch a Girls section with two teams at U15 and U13 level being formed.
The Patron of the Club is John Sandy.
We are grateful to our volunteer committee members who give up their time to ensure MPYFC runs smoothly and in the best interests of the players.
