After the close midweek defeat to Westfield, the Moles are hoping to get February off to a flying start with an away trip to Hartley Wintney FC.

They won the Premier Division in 2015–16 and the following season, they were able to take promotion to the East Division of the Southern League. In 2018, they won promotion to level seven the Premier South division by winning the promotion play-offs. The club finished bottom of the Premier Division South in 2022–23 and were relegated to the South Central Division of the Isthmian League.
