South Bank Cuaco was formed as recently as 2002 although this belies not one, but two long histories belonging to the clubs which joined together to create this new entity.
The Commercial Union Assurances Company (CUACo) joined the Southern Amateur League in 1919 having previously competed in the London Insurance Offices F.A. league competitions before World War I.
The club played its games initially at Southend Lane and then Elm Lane in Catford. It later moved to Copers Cope Road, Beckenham where it enjoyed near neighbours in Midland, Nat West and Lloyds Banks. The facilities at Copers Cope were second to none and after the club moved out the facilities were taken over for training purposes by Crystal Palace F.C.
