F.C. Romania is a football club based in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, England. The club are currently members of the Essex Senior League and play at Theobalds Lane.

History[edit]

The club was established in 2006 by Romanian immigrants and joined the Middlesex County League. In 2012–13 the club entered the FA Vase for the first time, beating Tring Athletic in the first qualifying round, before losing 7–0 at Hoddesdon Town in the next round.[1] In the same season the club finished second in the Premier Division and were promoted to the Essex Senior League.

Stadium[edit]

The club currently play at the 3,000-capacity Cheshunt Stadium on Theobalds Lane which they share with Cheshunt F.C..

Originally a gravel pit, by the 1930s the site had become the local rubbish tip, but between February and October 1949, it was cleared, levelled and a pitch was laid. Two Nissen huts were assembled, where the main gates are today, for changing rooms (with no power, telephone line or hot water), leaving the players with a long walk uphill to the pitch. The ground was opened on 29 October 1949.
