Leiston FC

Currently Playing In:

Isthmian League Premier Division

 

Although formed in 1880, Leiston Football Club developed slowly and after playing local football in The Suffolk & Ipswich League they moved up to become members of the Eastern Counties Leagues in 2001.

It took three years to gain promotion from Division One into The Premier Division, and in their first season at the higher level, their finishing position of 10th turned out to be the only time in seven years that ‘The Blues’ failed to finish in the top nine places.

In 2010-2011 the supporters celebrated an uplifting Championship at a ground which had become one of the best in the area. Immediate promotion from the play-offs, having finished in second place, took the club straight up to the Isthmian Premier Division and the club’s highest level in the Non-League Pyramid.

Leiston Football Club are certainly on the crest of a wave and their supporters will be excited to find out just how far their club can go.
