VCD Athletic

Currently Playing In:

Isthmian League Premier Division


The Vickers Crayford Dartford Athletic football club, not surprisingly known as VCD Athletic, was formed during the First World War and obviously associated with the famous Vickers company, the club played originally as Vickers (Erith) and Vickers (Crayford).

After developing in the Dartford and District League, the club moved up to The Kent County competition and then with ground and squad developing, the club was accepted by the Kent Senior League as County League champions

In the sixteen seasons of membership, VCD Athletic never finished lower than 8th in The Kent League. At the end of the 2012-2013 season, the club was rewarded for their superb record, finishing two points behind Erith & Belvedere with both clubs gaining promotion to The Isthmian Division One North.
