History

Ferring FC was formed in 1951, and originally played in the Worthing and District Football League. The club worked their way up the divisions until in 1964 they entered the Sussex County Football League. They stayed there until the end of the 1971–72 campaign, when they joined the West Sussex Football League. During which time they won Division Two south in the 1979–80 season and immediately in the season afterwards Division one.

Two seasons later at the end of the 1982–83 competition the club gained promotion into the newly formed Sussex County Football League Division 3 and gaining promotion to Division 2 at the first attempt. They also won the Division Three cup that season as well. They then spent the next six seasons before being relegated to Division Three again at the end of the 1989–90 season. At the end of the 1992–93 they were relegated back into the West Sussex Football League and later joined the Worthing and District Football League. After the move into the Worthing and district league the club was disbanded at some point in this time.

In 2007 a new committee was formed from scratch and two senior teams and a youth team were created, and joined the Worthing and District Football League. In 2010, Ferring were crowned Champions of the Worthing and District Football League Premier Division and once again were successful in entering in the Sussex County Football League County Division 3.

The club has played there since its inception and at first had to user the village hall for changing rooms until the early 1960s when changing rooms were added. A new club house was opened in 1983 with a match against Worthing, and was partly funded by getting the local people to sponsor the 4000 roof tiles at £1 each.
