Posted:Fri 14 Jul 2017

History

Woking F.C. were formed in 1889, and play at the Laithwaite Community Stadium – previously known as Kingfield Stadium. The club faced fears of folding due to financial issues but a cup run in 1908 kept the club afloat.

They joined the Isthmian League in 1911, but after a decline it took the club until 1989-90 to reach the Premier Division. In the 90/91 season Woking went on an unbelieveable cup run, beating three conference sides, as well as West Bromwich Albion before losing to Everton.

They have won the FA Trophy a joint-record three times, and achieved promotion to the Conference/National League in 2012 winning the Conference South with two games to spare.

Last Season

Last season Woking F.C. finished in 18th place, just three points above the drop zone, winning just 14 of their 46 games, drawing 11 and losing 21. Their top scorer was Gozie Ugwu with 19 goals, and one assist, with an average of 184 minutes per goal. However, he has since moved to League Two side Chesterfield on a 2-year-deal.

Last season the Silkmen had mixed fortunes against the Cardinals. After a 3-1 victory in September, the Silkmen faced Woking in April. This resulted in a 1-0 loss for Macclesfield Town as Woking looked to pick every possible point to avoid relegation.
