Torpedo play in the Bristol Downs League and run four sides who play in the 4 downs league divisions. We were formed in 1966 as Park Street Wanderers. It was decided that the club would adopt a new name and as Torpedo Moscow were doing well in Europe, the name became Torpedo.
Last season, we finished 2nd in the top Division of the Downs League and also got to the Final of the Norman Hardy Cup for the first time.
In 2007/8 Torpedo won the Downs League first division (by 12 points) for the first time in the clubs history, and in the process became the first club in 100 years of the downs league to win the Division 2 and Division 1 titles back to back (following relegation the previous year)..
2006/7 was our most succesful season ever, winning the Div 2 title (by 11 points), the Reserves won the All Saints Cup and the A's won the Div 4 title. We also won the Cotswool Cup for the team in all 4 divisions with the best goal average - ours was +70 .
We're a well run club and have a good social side with regular events throughout the season. We have also gone on tour to Holland in the last 12 years to play in tournament.
New players are always welcome - Pre-season training is on the Downs (opposite the cafe/changing rooms) Tuesday and Thursday, 6.45-8.30 and in season we train at Coombe Dingle Complex 8.30-10.00.
