Racing Club Warwick

Racing Club Warwick

Racing Club Warwick were formed in 1919 under the name of Saltisford Rovers and played in various local leagues including the Warwick League, Leamington & District League and the Warwickshire Combination until 1967.

During this period the club won a number of honours, including the Birmingham Alliance Senior Cup when they defeated Birmingham City in the final at St. Andrews.

In 1967 the club joined the West Midlands (Regional) League. Three years later they changed to their current name (which came from the fact that their ground is by Warwick Racecourse) and soon afterwards switched to the Midland Football Combination, where they were champions in 1988 and runners-up in 1989.

After the latter honour they gained promotion to the Southern League where they remained until 2003 when they finished bottom of the Western Division and dropped into the Midland Football Alliance.

They remained in the Midland Football Alliance until the end of the 2008–09 season, when they were relegated to the Midland Football Combination Premier Division, now the Midland Football League Division One.

Past players include England international goalkeeper Ben Foster.

At the start of the 2016-17 season the club began huge infrastructure renovations following the arrival of the new committee members the previous year, including new changing rooms, floodlighting, stands and training area. The club’s record win is 15-0 recorded on 26 December 2016 vs Southam United.
