"Soccer" came from Oxford University students, shortening "association football". They also came up with "Rugger", shortening "rubgy football".
Given both words came from what most normal Brits deem(ed) a snobbish institution in a period where association football was considered the "working men's game", it is not much of a surprise that it never caught on in the minds of the impoverished British labourers of the past.
Even "Rugger" is rarely, if ever, used now - it is also widely considered a "toff" word..
