Imber Court, East Molesey

Metropolitan Police

The ground at Imber Court was purchased by the Metropolitan Police in 1919 for the purpose of training horses, something which still happens to this day. The rest of the estate was dedicated to sports and recreation the following year. The club was formed initially to play friendlies, but they joined the Spartan League in 1928 and have worked their way to the Isthmian League. Imber Court Sports Club was officially opened in 1929 by H.R.H Prince George, who later became King George VI.

Bill Amor once played for the club, who also appeared for Great Britain in the 1948 Summer Olympics, scoring one goal. They currently have another international on their books in the form of Jon Nurse who has represented Barbados several times in FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.

In the 1994/95 season, Metropolitan Police FC’s 75th anniversary, a new grandstand was unveiled and a friendly against the Army was played.
