Ledbury Town F.C. are a football club based in Ledbury, Herefordshire, England.
Ledbury were established in 1893. Most recent major success came In the 2009-10 season, where they reached the final of the Herfordshire Senior County Cup and were victorious against Westfields FC.
For the 2010-11 season, Ledbury Town are members of the West Midlands (Regional) League Premier Division.
After playing in local leagues Ledbury joined the Worcestershire League in the early sixties under the guidance of Ken Long. They soon returned to the Hereford League in the late sixties, before winning all before them.
They entered the West Midland League in the seventies and progressed quickly adding a very successful clubhouse. Players were soon being brought and sold on to other clubs eg.Kevin Rose to Lincoln City for
£10,000, Herrington Kelly to Bristol Rovers, Mark Payne
to a Dutch side for £7000,00. Also Merrick Kwoski to Holland.
Ledbury had Tony Berne a Irish International and Mick Hill
who played for Ipswich and Wales. Steve Emery who
went to Hereford and Derby and Phil Preedy who also played for Hereford and Gloucester City.
In 1983 the club sadly folded, but reformed as Ledbury Town 84 with Phil Herbert at the helm of a new committee. The club had to start its life in division four of the Hereford League,but quickly rose through the leagues undefeated, winning the Hereford Premier Division in 1989.
In the early nineties they re-entered the West Midland
League, and again through all the hard work once again they have a thriving club and are one of the top clubs in the Premier Division and have set there sights on the Midland Alliance league.
Ben Symons is the latest Manager to take the reigns of the Herefordshire outfit and is looking to steer them quickly back in the right direction.
Symons has been handed the task by Chairman Chris Stephens who is keen to see Ledbury FC put back amongst the footballing elite.
The first task is to think outside the box and pull on players from nearby counties whilst the club looks to build its structure again.
Most recently, a new third team has been asembled and this will be a key holding for local young talent to emerge and grow within the club and will then become 1st team players over time.
