Welling Town - A Short History

Founded as recently as 2014, Welling Town FC started as a Sunday side playing on a Council pitch at Hall Place, Bexley in the London and Kent Suburban League. Achieving two promotions in as many seasons, the move to Saturday football was inevitable as the club looked to progress. Accepted in to the Kent County Football League in the summer of 2016, our debut season saw us win promotion and the West Kent Challenge Shield beating four teams in higher divisions in the process – our first ever silverware. The 2017/18 season just ended was extraordinary – winning the Kent County Second Division, as well as defending our West Kent Challenge Shield. However, the real peak of the season was winning the Kent Junior Cup, a competition with over 160 entrants, ranking us as the top amateur side in Kent. We’re proud to have achieved a rare treble, scoring over 130 goals in all competitions in the process. Our success on the field was mirrored by an application off the field to the FA to move in to the semi-professional ranks and we were delighted to have been granted entry in to the Southern Counties East Football League for the 2018-19 season. After a thrilling season we finished as title winners and at our first attempt have won promotion into the SCEFL Premier Division. We’ve therefore progressed from nothing, to Step 5, in three seasons, which we are told is unique. In the last 12 months we’ve also branched out with reserve sides, an under 23s, and several youth sides to help the further growth of the club long term.
