The club was founded in 1997 replacing the Medway Bears as the senior team based at the Ice Bowl. The club originally competed in the EPIHL until the 2003/4 season when the club dropped down to the ENIHL due to a lack of sponsorship. Invicta is one of the larger clubs at this level and has enjoyed a period of sustained success including winning the ENIHL Grand Slam in 2005/6. The most successful season in the Dynamos history came in the 2001/02 season they were the champions of the EPIHL, winning the league and playoffs and losing the cup final to local rivals the Romford Raiders.
The club's fiercest rivalry has traditionally been with the Romford (now London) Raiders and to a slightly lesser extent the Chelmsford Chieftains, with the Dynamos competing in the same league as the two Essex clubs for its first six seasons. However more recently a healthy rivalry has developed with the Streatham Redskins due to the geographical proximity of the two clubs. Another rivalry has emerged in recent years with the Wightlink Raiders due to a number of feisty and sometimes controversial encounters between the two teams.
The Dynamos finished third overall in the NIHL South Division 1 during the 2013/14 season, lost to Streatham Redskins in the Southern Cup semi-final, finished 3rd (of 4 teams) in the Southeast Trophy and got to the semi-finals of the NIHL South Division 1 play-offs, before getting knocked out by Wightlink Raiders.
