history of gravesennd & northfleet

Recommended Posts

Gravesend & Northfleet FC was formed in 1946, following the Second World War, after a merger between Gravesend United FC (originally formed in 1893) and Northfleet United FC (originally formed in 1890) with the new club retaining the red & white home colours (and the Stonebridge Road stadium) of Northfleet United FC.


The club's crest is simple in its design but with a powerful visual impact:


A circle split in two colours depicts the current home and away club colours. The red half represents the home colours - an image of a ship marking the famous Northfleet dockyards. The yellow half of the circle represents the away colours - the image of a football marking the sport played by the club.


Below the circle, a motto reads, 'The Fleet'. This was the nickname of Northfleet United FC and now also of Gravesend & Northfleet FC. Around the outside of the crest, the post-war club name is displayed.

All joking (and subtle social satire on the failings of the educational system today) aside, leave the little fella alone...
Do you not remember that age of enlightenment when you picked up on a new hobby or interest and eagerly devoured all associated information?

We know that he's a new fan of just 11 years old (lord knows we've heard it enough!) but a lot of you maintain that we need to bring new blood into the club and this is how you treat one of these eager young 'uns...

Let's face it, we've got bugger all else to write about at the moment close season except mindless speculation from Welling fans and various argumentative posters on here, so give the lad his dues - he's done a bit of research and wants to share it with the world. He may share his passion with other kids and add a few more to the happy throng at Stonebridge Road.

He lives in Sidcup too ferchrisakes; let's just thank our lucky stars that he's not been tempted to the dark side and followed Welling! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

PS. Besides which, I have a sneaky suspicion that he may be a pupil at my school!!
