Shepshed Dynamo v Clifton All Whites - Fri 13th July - 19.30pm

4 days ago By Ray Smithson

Postcode LE12 9BN

Kick Off tonight is 19.30pm

The town of Shepshed, adjacent to Junction 23 of the M1 motorway in North West Leicestershire, has had football teams associated with it since 1879. Whilst many of these teams achieved local recognition over the years, it was with the formation of the Charterhouse club in the mid-1970's, that the name of Shepshed became known nationally.

Between 1978 and 1984, the club rose from the lower reaches of the Leicestershire Senior League to the summit of the Southern League Premier Division, winning seven consecutive promotions (including six successive championship titles) on the way. During this period, they also reached both the semi-final and quarter-final of the FA Vase, as well as the First Round Proper of the FA Cup. Unfortunately the Charterhouse club, then known by its original name of Shepshed Albion, closed down in 1994.

In 2012, with new Chairman in local businessman Mick Sloan, Shepshed Dynamo competed in the United Counties League, where after a mixed start ended the season on a high finishing in 9th position and beating local rivals Quorn FC 5-0 to lift the Loughborough Charity Cup.
In 2013 Shepshed were moved sideways to compete in the Midland Football Alliance…

Parking is only available inside the Dovecote stadium for Players, Directors and Club Officials only.
Others please park in the school, on the right before you come down the hill, you'll see a Tudor Building and a large lawn.
The Dovecote is then just a two minute walk down the hill.
