Team Info

Hawkinge was originally a village and best known for its Royal Flying Corp. and RAF connections. During the First World War the airfield was known as RFC Folkestone. World War Two saw RAF Hawkinge play an integral part in the Battle of Britain. Although the airfield has since made way for housing a popular and well visited Battle of Britain Museum remains. Over the years the village grew and is now officially a town and civil parish in the Shepway District of Kent. With its own town council and community centre population is currently around 11,000 and still growing.

Over the years many football teams with the name of Hawkinge have competed in local leagues but only Hawkinge Town FC have competed in the Kent County League. Hawkinge Town FC were formed in July 2013; their first season competing in the Kent County Football League Division Three East.

The club was born out of the need for a senior team which would give budding Hawkinge Youth Club youngsters a natural progression into adult football once too old for youth teams.

Manager Jake Taylor led the team through a magnificent first season; becoming League Champions and suffering just one league defeat.

Season 2014-15 saw a second successive promotion achieved when the club clinched fourth place in Division Two East. At the Kent County Football League AGM it was officially announced that the club will be playing in Division One East for Season 2015-16.

Season 2015-16
This season was one of consolidation both on and off the field. The goal was to retain a place in NRG GYM Kent County League Division One East. The team also reached the semi final of the Canterbury & District Senior Charity Cup, the quarter final of the Kent Intermediate Challenge Shield and reaching the Weald of Kent Senior Charity Cup Final is an enjoyable bonus.

Season 2016-17 The club have appointed a new Manager in Danny Regan with Damian Abel as his assistant. The aim was to continue the good work that has gone on before and to push the club forward. Hawkinge finished Runners up in Division One Central & East and also won the Weald of Kent Senior Charity Cup.

Season 2017-18 The club appointed James Everitt and Roy Guiver as joint managers.
