Folkestone Invicta: Club Profile
Our 2003-4 FA Trophy Round Three tie at Cheriton Road was the first-ever time we met Folkestone Invicta for competitive reasons. Boro’ overcame the Invicta on that day to go through to the next round. And that might mean they’ll be wanting revenge next time we meet. Then again, they might not even remember it. Who knows?

Folkestone Invicta Travel Information – Distance: 107 miles
You won’t be too surprised to learn that you need to head clockwise around the M25 and over the Dartford Crossing for this trip; the M20 (Junction 3) being your intended target.
Join the coastbound M20 for around 50-and-a-half miles; leaving at Junction 13 for the A20 into Folkestone. By now, you’re on the outskirts of the town and just further on from the Channel Tunnel entrance. Take the third exit at the roundabout and the second at the next one, having just crossed the motorway.
Barely a mile down the road is a left turn for Cheriton Road, where the ground is.
Just a little further down from the club’s main entrance is a car park next to what – by summer – is a cricket pitch. Much of this area is residential too, which makes a street parking option likely too.
Station: FOLKESTONE CENTRAL
Services to: LONDON ST PANCRAS
We reckon Folkestone Central is the closest station. The club says Folkestone West is “marginally” closer. But we’re sticking with our original choice.
From the station, leave via the approach road down to the A259 and turn left. Head left again at the roundabout. Continue along Cheriton Road for about half a mile and you’ll reach your destination.
