Barnes of one of the most beautiful London area and it deserves a modern, sustainable community football club. Barnes FC was somehow forgotten although its name is linked with football game origins from 19th century. New management is now re-establishing Barnes FC and intends to involve local passionate football fans and enthusiasts to support their initiative.
