Right up until 2018, the Foundrymen were members of the UCL. So, it’s little shock that you’ll be told it was our rise into the Premier Division in 1981 that caused us to meet. In total, we had six meetings; five of them going in our favour. Only the first, at the start of that 1981-2 campaign, went their way. After we left the UCL, they continued on; FCHD’s record of them deviating in 1989 when their name changed to Hamlet S&L for a three-season spell. But why did the UCL run come to an end in 2018?

Relegation. Ending up bottom of the table with 34 defeats from 38 wasn’t good. Nor was a tally of 154 goals conceded. Now, the Foundrymen are currently in the Northamptonshire Combination Premier Division.

We think.

Who are S&L Corby?

Founded in 1935, S&L Corby was – to start – the works team for Corby’s Stewarts & Lloyds Iron and Steel Company. The creation of Corby Town in 1948 did little to help the Foundrymen; many players upping sticks for the newer side and forcing what was left of S&L Corby to slog it out in the Kettering Amateur League. A 1954 title win set the scene for ’em to join the United Counties League in 1957, however.
