Erith Town

Currently Playing In:

Kent League Premier Division


In 1959 a Sunday Football Club called Woolwich Town joined The London Metropolitan Sunday League and remained at this level until changing to become a London Spartan League club in 1991.

A move to The Erith Sports Stadium in 1995 coincided with the club achieving promotion to The Spartan Premier Division. However, in 1996 the club chose to move into The Kent League and changed their name to Erith Town Football Club.

As loyal members of the Kent league ‘The Dockers’ have not always found life easy. The club sold a dummy by suggesting a name change to ‘Erith & Dartford’ in 20110, but this never materialized. In the last six years, supporters have been encouraged as the club haven’t finished below 8th position and in 2012-2013 they achieved their best ever season in 3rd place.
