Stocksbridge Park Steels Football Club is an English association
football club based in the Stocksbridge area of Sheffield. They
currently compete in the Northern Premier League Division One South
East. The club was formed in 1986 from the merger of Stocksbridge Works,
the works team of the local British Steel Corporation plant, with Oxley
Park Sports. Sporting a yellow and blue home kit, they play at the
Bracken Moor ground. They initially played in the Northern Counties East
League, progressing through its divisions. They won promotion to
Division One of the Northern Premier League in 1996, and reached its
Premier Division in 2009, but were relegated back to Division One South
in 2014. Due to league re-organisation, they now play in Division One
South East. Steels have participated in the FA Cup every year since
1992, reaching the 4th qualifying round in 2003, and first entered the
FA Trophy in 1996 after previously participating in the FA Vase.
