Last Updated: 02 July 2022

Oh, for the rivalries we once had back in the day; Kingsbury Town one of those sides against whom we enjoyed a good ol’ tussle – if you can remember them. Not for the first time, it’ll be Boro’ fans of a certain vintage who know the name. If you know the name, you perhaps know a bit more about the battles we had. After all, we weren’t around back then! We’re a website – and this goes back to pre-tinterwebs days. Can you even start to imagine that for a second?

The club we knew are now no more; consumed by a 2006 merger with London Tigers and now known by the latter’s name. Our record against them was good; six wins in 12 outings more than reasonable if you’re thinking win rates. It was only during our time as a Vauxhall Opel League Division One club in 1986-7 and 1987-8 that we didn’t beat ’em.


Kingsbury Town: The Facts

Who are Kingsbury Town?

Now, we’ll piece this together with the help of Wikpedia and the ever-amazeballs Football Club History Database. And we’ll throw a bit of info in from the current club’s offy site for good measure. As far as we can tell, the Kingsbury Town story starts in 1919 – but their first-ever name isn’t apparently known. After a few years called Davis Sports, they took the Kingsbury name in 1923 and could be found in the the Willesden & District Football League.

World War Two came and went – as did time in both the Middlesex Senior and the Parthenon leagues. The club were actually one of nine founder members of the latter, going on to lift the 1952-3 title too. But their time in the Parthenon League wouldn’t be a long one. Ahead of the 1959-60 season, they joined the Spartan League – and they remained there, despite a tricky start, for more than a decade; eventually switching to the Athenian League in 1976. For whatever reason, however, the club went back to the Spartan League in 1978.

And then back to the Athenian in 1981.

Why do we know Kingsbury Town?

Kingsbury Town lasted three more seasons in the Athenian League before deciding to join the Isthmian League. And, whaddya know? A few other teams were also making the same move too. One of those others was a bunch of young bucks going by the name Stevenage Borough. Oh, wait – that’s us! It was this influx of 19 new faces in total that led to Division Two expanding and splitting into North and South. Us and Kingsbury both fell on the north side of that split. And that meant we’d meet for the very first time in the 1984-5 campaign.
