Bridon Ropes FC History
Bridon Ropes F.C. began life as a factory team back in 1935. It was formed from workers at the British Ropes Works in Charlton, London, and became known as British Ropes F.C.
In the early days the club played in various minor local leagues until eventually joining the South London Amateur League, a few years later they started playing in the Greater London League which they left in 1975 to join the London Spartan League, still under the name of British Ropes, but in 1990 the factory changed its name to Bridon Ropes and the football club changed its name to Bridon Sports . They then won Division Two of the Spartan League in 1991–92 and the London Junior Cup. In 1992–93 the club changed its name to Bridon Ropes FC.
In 1997–98 they became founder members of the Spartan South Midlands Football League Division One South, however they left the league the following season to become founder members of the London Intermediate League. Bridon Ropes later joined the Kent County League Division One and were champions in the 2009–10 season, achieving promotion to the Premier Division.
In 2011–12 they became founder members of the Kent Invicta Football League.
Since the reformation to the SCEFL First Division Bridon finished 7th in 2016-17 and then 5th in 2017-18 showing an improvement that if continued this Season will see 'Ropes' challenging for the major honours come the end of the Season.
