Lordswood FC


Lordswood FC History

Lordswood FC were formed in 1968 and joined the Rochester and District League, where they won successive Divisions and Cups before finally ending up in the Premier Division. The club then applied, and was successful, in gaining entry into the Kent County League in 1981/82. The Lords soon made their mark at a higher standard of football and, within 5 years of joining, they again found themselves in the Senior Division. In June 1996, officials of Lordswood FC attended the Kent League AGM and made a successful application to join the Winstonlead Kent League (as it was known then).

Lordswood is situated in the Medway Towns where the club own their own ground and have continually improved their facilities over the years. The facilities include; Floodlights,a 123 seater stand, and hard standing/terracing around 3 sides of the ground. A brand new Boardroom was opened by Andy Hessenthaler when he brought his Gillingham side for a friendly in July 2003. This game brought a record gate of 600, and although Lordswood lost 5-0, two weeks later Gillingham beat Preston by the same scoreline, and so are in good company.

Lordswood's highest league position is 8th which was achieved in 2005/06. They have reached the Semi-Final of the Kent Senior Trophy 3 times, and the League Cup once. They have entered the FA Cup and FA Vase for the last 8 years, but have yet to get past the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup and 1st Round of the Vase.

Lordswood's biggest win was against Erith Town with a 7-0 scoreline. The biggest defeat came against Folkestone Invicta away , 8-1.

Lordswood were Runners-Up in the Midweek League in 1998/99 when they lost 2-0 to St. Leonards, and the Reserve Team won the Floodlight Trophy in 2006/07

Jason Lillis and John Guest joined the club in November 2009, taking over the management reigns and keeping Martin Telford and Steve Arnold as coaches. The 2010/11 season was their first full season in charge and they finished 13th in the league.

2011/12 sees Barry Morgan as the new replacement assistant manager in place of John Guest with aspirations for improvements on previous seasons
