Founded 1995 - Nickname The Foxes

Glebe FC were founded (as the junior side Glebe Globetrotters) in 1995 by chairman Rocky McMillan and his wife Grace. Initially based in West Wickham and starting with just a sole Under 8’s team, the club progressed through the age groups. Regulars in Kent’s Youth Leagues we won every junior trophy possible – including 10 London County Cups.

After their exceptional beginnings as a Junior side, their committee voted to form a Senior section in 2010 and the newly established team joined the Kent Invicta League (KIL) in 2013-14. In 2014, we also won the prestigious London FA Standard Charter Community Club of the Year Award, as voted for by the Executive Committee of the London FA.

But for years Glebe were nomads, seemingly unable to secure a permanent home. For the first two seasons the senior side ground shared with Holmesdale, but, in 2014, we signed a 25 year lease to take over Old Elthamians Rugby Club. This was a historic day in the club’s history, when we had a base to be a focal point for sport in the community, at last.

With the help of the Football Stadia Improvement Fund, we have since built a modern sports complex. The club resides in 15 acres in Chislehurst, comprising 7 pitches, a stadium pitch, a separate floodlit training area, gym, bar and reception rooms. In 2023/24 season we have over 600 members. There are over 30 Junior teams, for boys and girls; a Ladies senior side; midweek teams in the Isthmian Youth League; and of course the First XI.
