Folkestone Invicta Supporters Club was formed during the Football Club's Kent League days during the early 1990's, and has since grown to become a vital cog in the wheel that keeps our Club running smoothly.
The Supporters Club began as a small group consisting of just a handful of members. However, after the first year in Dr Marten's League in 1999-2000 the Supporters Club really started move on and grow within the Football Club.
Three founding members of the Folkestone Invicta Supporters Club are still working on the committee - Harry Lester, Mick Cork and Pete Hancock.
There have been many changes to the format and role of the Supporters Club over the years, aswell as the aims and targets that it was to meet. A wide range of activities within the Football Club are run by the Supporters Club, such as the recycling scheme, Easyfundraising, Balloon Races, Pay-For-A-Player, the Travel Club, etc.. The list goes on!
For more details on the fundraising which the Supporters Club takes part in, simply click the Raise Funds for Invicta link under the Commercial tab at the top of the page.
The Supporters Club now has a Youth Committee, with the aim of getting the younger generation involved within the Club and local community. The Youth Section Committee co-ordinates the organisation and administration of football for the 200+ young footballers who represent the club across the 7-18 age range. The Committee comprises Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and Welfare Officer, plus the Managers and Coaches in charge of all the year groups.
Folkestone Invicta Supporters Club can also proudly say that the vast majority of money raised goes directly into the playing budget of Folkestone Invicta FC.
