Bridon Ropes FC History

Bridon Ropes F.C. began life as a factory team back in 1935. It was formed from workers at the British Ropes Works in Charlton, London, and became known as British Ropes F.C.

In the early days the club played in various minor local leagues until eventually joining the South London Amateur League, a few years later they started playing in the Greater London League which they left in 1975 to join the London Spartan League, still under the name of British Ropes, but in 1990 the factory changed its name to Bridon Ropes and the football club changed its name to Bridon Sports . They then won Division Two of the Spartan League in 1991–92 and the London Junior Cup. In 1992–93 the club changed its name to Bridon Ropes FC.

In 1997–98 they became founder members of the Spartan South Midlands Football League Division One South, however they left the league the following season to become founder members of the London Intermediate League. Bridon Ropes later joined the Kent County League Division One and were champions in the 2009–10 season, achieving promotion to the Premier Division.

In 2011–12 they became founder members of the Kent Invicta Football League.

Since the reformation to the SCEFL First Division Bridon finished 7th in 2016-17 then 5th in 2017-18 and 4th in 2018/19 showing an improvement year on year.

The 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons were abandoned due to Coronovirus while the 2021/22 campaign yielded a 6th place finish - just one spot outside the play-offs.

This season, under the leadership of Uche Ibemere we aim to continue our progression and compete for a coveted top five spot.
