Leyton Wingate: Club Profile
A historic London-based club that was in action between 1868 and 2011, Leyton Wingate then sadly disappeared off the football map. It seems to be a complicated tale. From what we can tell, the club (as we’re calling it) was born in 1975 after merging with Wingate FC. Yet, that came to an end in 1992 after Wingate went off in a different direction. Instead, a second merger in 1995 created Leyton Pennant; Walthamstow as it’s now known.
But a new Leyton FC, set up in 1997, won a court case to be seen as the continuation of the original club. So, ignore that Walthamstow bit above. Not relevant here. Anyway, this new Leyton club continued up until 2011; suspended in January for not paying its league fees and then withdrawing due to money problems. With all its staff then leaving too, the club was effectively dead. It was the end of the line for a club steeped in tradition.
And a club that had a hold over us if our head-to-head record is anything to go by. One win in eight meetings; that coming under Cloughie during the 1991-2 campaign. Before that, it was painful; taking us five matches just to score against them!
