Canterbury City - A History

Canterbury City was revived in 2007 after folding in 2000-01. They were the first football club in the country to be formed as a Community Interest Company and won promotion from the Kent County League Division II (East) in their first season. They followed this by securing promotion to the Premier division in 2010/11 season after an unbeaten run and winning the Les Leckie Cup.

As a community based club, we run several sides including Youths, Girls’, Disability and Walking Football.

Although for some fifty years there were various versions of a City club, it was not until 1947 that a truly representative one came about. For many years they played in the Kent League, the Southern League, and the Metropolitan League which they joined in 1958, finishing third and guaranteeing promotion to the Southern League Division One.

During the 1960s City twice reached the first round of the FA Cup. In 1963-64 they lost 6-0 at home to Torquay United before a club record crowd of 3,001 and in 1968-69 they went to Swindon and, by all accounts, were unlucky to lose 1-0.

During the early 1970s they struggled in the Southern Division and by the early 1990s they were also in financial trouble. They returned to the Kent League and although initially doing well, they finally finished bottom in two consecutive seasons and folded

Under the management of Ben Smith/Ada Gower, and coach Darren Beale, City’s 2015/16 season produced their best league position finish since reforming, 8th, and also had their longest ever run in the FA Vase.

In 2016/17, Tim Dixon joined the management team as Assistant to Ben Smith, and Darren continued as coach. A disappointing start to the season was turned around by much better form including an unbeaten run of 12 games, scoring 33 and conceding only 8. City finished 9th with 58 points, and had the 4th best defensive record in the League.

Their home ground of Kingsmead Stadium has now been re-developed for housing but the Canterbury City Council is working with the club to provide a brand new “Football Hub” in the City which it is hoped will become the football club’s home. For the 2017-18 season they played home games at Deal Town FC and finished mid-table in 10th place.

For 2018-19 the club played at Faversham whilst a location for a home ground continued to be worked on behind the scenes. Ben Smith led the side to a 9th placed finish but the huge positive of the campaign was a stunning FA Vase run that only ended at the semi-final stage when coming up just short to Cray Valley PM.
The 2019/20 was a turbulent one with Management changes followed by the Coronovirus Pandemic which declared the season null and void with just a few weeks to go. Similar happened again in 2020/21 and we go into this season looking to continue to push the club forward.
