Larkfield & New Hythe History

Larkfield & New Hythe Wanderers was formed back in 1961 and has been established for over 60 years. Originally the club only had men’s teams but after the merger with Larkfield FC in 2012 there are now over 30 teams consisting of men, Ladies and youth teams of both boys and girls. The club was awarded the FA Charter Community standard status in 2015 with an ethos to grow and support the club in the local Community and promote the success of all the teams.

In the beginning the club played in the Maidstone & District Saturday league and in 1997 gained acceptance into the Kent County League. The club was in Division 2 East for many seasons without realising the success it strived for. A very strong team in 2016 just missed out on promotion but was successful in winning the Les Leckie Cup in a very tight game 3-2 against Rolvenden FC.

In 2020 the club was promoted to Division 1 of the Kent County League, and a new Sponsor, Committee and management team was put in place to push the Club for further promotion and ultimately into SCEFL.

The plan was going very well with the team 7 points clear at the top of the league when unfortunately, Covid19 brought the season to an end. However, the club was undeterred and continued to enhance the whole stadium and make our aspirations known to enter the SCEFL Division 1.

The stadium was re-branded as the ‘TARAY COMMUNITY STADIUM’ and the ground was significantly improved with new seated stands, covered standing, new dugouts, pitch barrier surrounding as well as renovated clubhouse and changing rooms. Very importantly, we also received Football Foundation funding for pitch maintenance and secured the services of Scott Byers who has transformed the playing service.
Additionally, the club has had new Floodlights installed replacing the old ones from 1996!

In 2021, the club’s hard work paid off with the announcement we had been accepted to join the Southern Counties East Football League at Step 6 of the non-league pyramid. This is an outstanding achievement for the club and great reward for the hard work that has gone on at Larkfield & New Hythe over the past few years.

We can’t wait for the new season and welcoming new clubs to our stadium and visiting new ones ourselves.
