A taste of South America came to the Isthmian League on Saturday 21st October when a branch of Corinthinans fans descended on Kingston-upon-Thames.

Members of Fiel Londres – a London supporters branch of Brazilian side Sport Club Corinthians Paulista (Corinthians) – attended Corinthian Casuals 0-0 draw with Binfield, creating a vibrant atmosphere with drums and an impressive array of flags.

It was a much needed point for both sides who are 19th and 21st in the Isthmian League South Central Division One.

Corinthian Casuals were made up of a merger between Corinthian FC and Casuals FC in 1939. Previously Casuals were runners up in the first FA Amateur Cup in 1894 and were founder members of the Isthmian League in 1905.

Famously, both sides were touring sides. Casuals played the likes of Athletic Bilbao and Sporting Lisbon in Europe but it was Corinthian who are most famous for hitting the road with tours to South Africa, across Europe, North America and most notably Brazil in 1910, 1913 and 1914.
