Shepshed Dynamo

Currently Playing In:

United Counties Premier Division

 

Another club who have changed their name after internal problems, originally playing as Shepshed Charterhouse, the Leicestershire club enjoyed a wonderful spell in the late seventies. They won their County League for three consecutive years and then became the first champions of the newly formed Northern Counties East in 1982.

This fine run continued in The Southern league where their spectacular rise up the non-league ladder saw them promoted into The Premier Division in 1983 as Runners-up in The Midland Division.

The club didn’t find Premier football easy however and a move across to The Northern Premier league in 1988 brought even more difficult battles on and off the field. The town were represented by Shepshed Albion but two relegations had been suffered. So it wasn’t until Shepshed Dynamo were accepted as founder members of The Midland Football Alliance in 1994, that football supporters in the town felt some consolidation was possible.

Their second season in the new Alliance saw a Shepshed club back in The Southern League, where it failed to finish higher than tenth in seven years. A move across to The Northern Premier League didn’t make much difference and sadly, after nine difficult campaigns, the club dropped down to The United Counties League, where their first finish in 9th place was their highest in seventeen years.
