Our History

The club currently has teams that include Minis, Girls, Junior, Youth, Ladies, Inclusive, Senior and Veteran sides.

Harborough Town Juniors were formed in 1975, running two teams from U11 to U16. After initially playing at Symington’s, they developed facilities on Northampton Road in the 1990s. However, there was a desire to have senior football for the youngsters to move on to, consequently they formed links with Spencer United, and in 2007 they merged with Harborough Spencers, as they had become called. In the early 2000’s Harborough Minis had been formed to cater for U11s, and in 2007 they joined the merger to create Harborough Town FC

Former players at the club have included Richard Stearman (Leicester City FC + England), Chris Carruthers (Northampton Town FC, Bristol Rovers FC + England), Tom Fielding (Leicester City + Mansfield Town) and Martin Johnson (Leicester Tigers FC, England + British Lions). The club has also over recent years seen a number of players, boys and girls, progress into Centre of Excellence and Elite squads at local Professional Clubs and it is rewarding to hear of their individual progress.
