History

Sevenoaks F.C. was originally formed in 1883 and was amongst the founder members of the original Kent League, although they left the league after just one season. It is known that on 26 April 1893 they played Royal Arsenal, who were at the time the only professional team in the South of England, with over 1,000 spectators watching the game.

In 1906 the club, now known as Sevenoaks Town, became one of the founder members of the Sevenoaks League. In 1951 Town amalgamated with another local club, St. John’s United, and became members of the Kent Amateur League (Western Region), which they won on two occasions. In 1984 the Kent Amateur League was re-organised as the Kent County League, and Sevenoaks were the first Premier Division champions, a feat they repeated in seasons 1995–96 and 2002–03. In 2003 the club stepped up to the Kent League, where, despite the step up to a significantly higher standard of football, they finished a commendable 11th in their first two seasons.

In season 201314 the Kent League renamed itself the Southern Counties East Football League and Sevenoaks Town transferred to the Premier Division. In 201718 the club were SCEFL champions and were promoted to the Isthmian League South East Division.
