Faversham Town

Altrincham Club Crest image

The town of Faversham was represented by a football club formed in 1884 and playing under the names of Faversham Invicta, Faversham Services, Faversham Railway and Faversham Rangers before the war.

Short periods playing in The Metropolitan League and The Athenian League preceeded a long and loyal membership of the Kent League in which ‘The Lillywhites’ won the championship twice.

However, ‘the nineties’ brought difficult times on and off the field and after ten seasons without a top ten finish, the club were suspended for off field problems at a time when their ground desperately needed upgrading.

After a break of two years, and great work from loyal supporters, a return to an upgraded ground and new enthusiasm on the field, produced a quick return to The Kent League via The Kent County competition and was followed by a history making promotion to The Isthmian League as Kent champions in 2010.
