Initially, Whitstable Town settled down as a mid table club in the Kent League, but having achieved third place in 1988 the club‘s fortunes improved and in the next nineteen seasons they only finished outside the top ten three times.

Then the 2006-2007 season brought them The Kent Championship and promotion to the highest level in the club’s history - The Isthmian League Division One, where life is tough but the club is settling down although they have yet to achieve a top ten finish.
