Club History

Formed as Harborough Town Juniors FC at the start of the 1975/1976 season the club has now been providing quality football in the community for over 30 years and has been based in its own facilities at Northampton Road since the early 1990?s.


The club became an FA Charter Standard Club in 2004 and through consistent development has also achieved FA Charter Standard Community Club status which is the highest accolade currently available and recognises best practice, on-going development and a positive impact within the local community.


Harborough Town FC now consists of Junior, Youth, Girls, Senior and Veteran sections accommodating 36 teams playing regular league football and has a playing membership now approaching 300 with around 90% of those being under the age of 18. The club has also been actively involved in the formation and development of the Harborough Alliance Football Partnership which provides training and game opportunities for children with learning and physical difficulties.


Former players at the club have included Richard Stearman (Leicester City FC + England), Chris Carruthers (Northampton Town FC, Bristol Rovers FC + England) and Martin Johnson (Leicester Tigers FC, England + British Lions). The club has also over recent years seen a number of players, boys and girls, progress into Centre of Excellence and Elite squads at local Professional Clubs and it is rewarding to hear of their individual progress.


The Senior section was formed in 2008 as Spencer?s United FC was amalgamated into the set up and the name was inevitably changed to Harborough Town FC.


In the 6 seasons since, Harborough have progressed beyond all expectations, with 3 x promotions now seeing them playing in the UCL Premier - the first time the town of Harborough has seen Step 5 standard Football.


The 2012-13 season saw manager Andrew ?Stan? Wilson leave for a post at Histon midway through the season leaving Chris Church & Mick Ogier in charge. The pair put together a run in that saw Harboro? maintain their Premiership status. Church then took complete control at the beginning of the 2013-14 season but a run of poor results saw him replaced by the present management duo of Gordon Kyle & Rob Dunnion who managed a last game of the season escape with an away victory at Sleaford again maintaining our Premiership survival. The Club is now hoping with Kyle & Dunnions wealth of experience that they can move away from relegation battles and begin to build a successful team challenging for honors
