Lyndhurst Football Club play in Hampshire Premier League Senior Division and West Division of the Wyvern Combination Football League, we take pride in being one of the oldest football clubs in the country being founded in 1885
Lyndhurst Football Club was established in 1885 making it one of the oldest football clubs in the United Kingdom.
One of the earliest record matches Lyndhurst played was an FA Cup tie on 5th October 1889 against a team by the name of Royal Arsenal (their first match in the FA Cup). The match took place at Plumstead Common in front of a crowd of 2,500. The final score was Royal Arsenal 11 - 0 Lyndhurst. Since then Lyndhurst have not been very successful in the FA cup where as Royal Arsenal went on to win the cup for the first time in 1930 and have only managed to win the competition 12 more times since then becoming the most successful team in the competition. If you have not guessed yet Royal Arsenal are better known now as Premier League giants Arsenal. We at Lyndhurst Football Club are very proud to be known as first team that Arsenal played in the FA Cup and to have played a part in them becoming record holders.
The club crest of Lyndhurst Football Club is a depiction of Bolton's Bench Lyndhurst's most well known land mark. The half football represents the natural knoll which the ancient yew trees sit upon.
Bolton's Bench is located in the east of Lyndhurst, approximately 500m from the centre spot of Wellands Road.
