Club History

Kirby Muxloe Fc was founded in 1910 and has been active ever since, excluding the war years. After the 2nd World War in 1947 the club joined the Leicester Mutual League and remained there for many years.

In 1972 the football club amalgamated with the local cricket club to form Kirby Muxloe Sports and Village Club with a new club house on Ratby Lane built entirely through the efforts of the local community.

Two years later in 1974 the club joined the Leicester City League where it remained for 8 seasons until an application to join the Leicestershire Senior League was accepted in 1982. In five seasons the club found themselves in the Premier Division following their 3rd place in Division 1.The step up proved to be to much for Kirby and 2 seasons later they were relegated back to Division 1.

In 1989 Gary Keenan was appointed manager and within 5 seasons the club were back in the Premier Division after winning both League 1 and the Coalville Cup. In season 1997/98 Kirby were victorious in the Battle of Britain Cup and were runners up in the league. The same season also saw Kirby venture into the FA Vase for only the 2nd time in the clubs history. Also during the same season floodlights were ercted and the following year saw the installation of an all weather floodlit training pitch.

The 2003/04 season saw Kirby finish runners up to Loughborough Dynamo. 2005/06 saw Kirby reach the final of the Leicestershire County Cup only to lose to Friar Lane in extra time. The following season the club made amends by beating Ibstock 3-2 and also finished runners up in the league.

2007/08 saw Kirby win the Leicestershire Senior League Premier division scoring over 100 goals on their way to the title.

2008/09 saw Kirby join the newly formed East Midlands Counties League and at the end of the season be crowned inaugural champions and gain promotion to the Midland Football Alliance. In their 1st season in the MFA Kirby finished a creditable 8th and 9th in consecutive seasons. 2009/10 also saw Kirbys 1st venture into the FA Cup and following a 1-2 victory against Oadby Town, Kirby were beaten 6-2 by Brocton in the next round.

At the end of the 2014 season Gary Keenan stood down, following 25 years as player and manager with his assistant John Love taking over as 1st team manager. 2014/15 proved to be a mixed season Kirby going out of both the FA Cup and FA Vase in the early rounds, however in the league Kirby achieved their best ever finish in 5th place and unbeaten at home against the 4 teams who finished above them.

2015/16 sees the FA move Kirby laterally from the MFL into the UCL.
