Description:
Corinthian-Casuals F.C. (a.k.a. Pink and Chocolate) are a football club based in Tolworth in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. The club was formed in 1939 by a merger of two amateur clubs: Corinthian, who formed in 1882, and Casuals, who formed in 1878.

Despite an almost immediate break for World War II, in 1945 they took Casuals' place in the Isthmian League, and gradually dropped down its divisions. In 1988 the team acquired its first home ground, King George's Field in Tolworth, and on a tour of Brazil, Sócrates played a match for the club, because he was a player of Sport Club Corinthians Paulista (club founded in 1910 inspired by Corinthian, which played in São Paulo, Brazil, that year). A proposal has been mooted for Corinthian-Casuals to move back to Queen's Club, where Corinthians had played until 1922.
