Isthmian Division One North


Formed originally in 1889, the club played in the Ilford local leagues and after a break for two years, resumed as Barkingside Old Boys in 1923 before reverting to Barkingside FC in the 1930s.

Passing through The Ilford, South Essex and Walthamstow Leagues, the club were also members of The Amateur Football Alliance. In 1950, Barkingsde joined The London League where they remained until moving onto the Greater London league in 1965-1966.

In the 1996-1997 season the club was accepted by the newly formed London Spartan League and immediately won the championship and The London Senior Cup. After another success in 1998-1999 the club’s application to the Isthmian league was turned down and neither was a move across to the Essex Senior League accepted, as clubs were not allowed to move sideways across the non-league pyramid.

To open up the opportunity to join the Essex Senior league, Barkingside took a season off, and then their application to join their County League became acceptable! Since then, the new century has seen the club produce consistent results becoming a senior member of their competition with ambitions to move up the pyramid.
