Reynolds Field, Perivale

Hanwell Town

Nicknamed The Geordies, Hanwell Town were formed in the 1920s by a group of people who had moved to the West London area from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, also adopting The Magpies’ famous black and white stripes as their home colours.

They moved from the Ealing Sports Ground to their current home at Reynolds Field in 1981, which was inaugurated with a match against Tottenham Hotspur. Stephen Pound, the Member of Parliament for Ealing North and Shadow Minister for Northern Ireland, used to play for the club before he took up a career in politics.

The ground backs on to the A40 trunk road going through Perivale. It continues to be improved; with floodlights, a new stand and disabled facilities added since the club moved to the area. They also recently built the Bob Fisher stand, in honour of the club’s chairman who has served with them for 50 years.
