Waltham Forest

Currently Playing In:

Isthmian League Division One North


Essex non-league football has certainly seen a few name changes in the last thirty years.
Dagenham lasted longer than Leytonstone, Walthamstow Avenue and the original Ilford while Waltham Forest were originally Leyton Pennant in 1995, when Leyton and Walthamstow Pennant merged and then the club changed its name to Waltham Forest in 2003!

If names were changing, divisions were not. A place in Non-League Football’s Step Four has been retained since 1995 although two seasons in the Southern League ‘family’  were experienced between 2004 and 2006.

As Waltham Forest the club have now had ten years of competition at this level and will be planning to step up.
