Northfleet United F.C.
|Full name||Northfleet United Football Club|
The club were founded in 1890. In 1905 Northfleet United moved into the newly constructed Stonebridge Road ground. They joined the Kent League in 1906–07 and were runners-up in their inaugural season. 'The Fleet' followed that with three successive championship titles in 1907–08, 1908–09 and 1909–10. The team repeated winning the championship in 1919–20 and were runners-up in 1921–22. In the intervening season, 1920–21, they were winners of the Kent Senior Cup.
Following financial difficulties in 1923 Northfleet entered into a  formal arrangement whereby they played youngsters from Football League Tottenham Hotspur. United were Kent League Cup winners in 1923–24, League runners-up in the following season and a year later in 1925–26 were Kent League Division 1 champions scoring 172 goals over a 36 match season. The club were Kent League Cup finalists in 1926–27, losing to the Chatham based Royal Naval Depot. For five successive seasons between 1923–24 to 1927–28 Northfleet United won the Kent Senior Cup.
In 1931 the arrangement with Tottenham Hotspur was upgraded to full nursery team status and this heralded a period of seven seasons of success during which period they scored a minimum of 110 goals in league competition each season. Northfleet were Kent League Division 1 Championship & Kent League Cup double winners in 1931–32, 1934–35 and 1936–37. Additionally they were Kent League Division 1 Championship winners twice more in 1935–36 (completing a straight hat-trick as league toppers) & 1938–39, were Kent League Cup victors again in 1937–38 and lifted the Kent Senior Cup in 1937–38 too. The club were Kent Senior Cup semi-finalists in both 1935–36 and 1936–37, losing to ultimate winners and Arsenal nursery team Margate on both occasions. The 1932–33 season was by comparison a relative anticlimax as Kent League runners-up, to Margate on goal average only!
With the outbreak of the Second World War league competition ceased as did the nursery team arrangement.
In November 2015, to celebrate the 125th anniversary of its founding, a complete history of the club – called Set In Concrete – was published.
