Barwell Football Club is an association football club based in Barwell, near Hinckley in Leicestershire, currently playing in the Midland Football Alliance.

History

Barwell F.C. was formed at the start of the 1992–93 season as the result of a merger between Hinckley F.C. of the Midland Football Combination and Barwell Athletic F.C., who had previously played in the Leicestershire Senior League. [fchd|name=Hinckley|id=HINCKLEY] [fchd|name=Barwell Athletic|id=BARWELLA] The new club initially played in the Midland Football Combination before becoming founder member of the Midland Football Alliance in 1994, where they play to this day. In 2006 Barwell won the Midland Football Alliance League Cup beating Leamington 3–1.

Club records

*Best league performance: Midland Football Alliance, 3rd, 2000/01
*Best FA Cup performance: 2nd qualifying round, 2000/01 and 2001/02
*Best FA Vase performance: 5th round, 1995/96

Ground

The Kirkby Road sports complex also incorporates bowling facilities and a cricket pitch, which was once used for first class matches. Floodlights were installed prior to the 1992/93 season, and a number of seats were obtained from the old main stand at Leicester City's ground. A new covered stand to accommodate five hundred spectators was built prior to the 1996/97 season. Towards the end of the 2000/01 season a new 256 seater cantilever stand was erected, and the club hope that further planned improvements will allow them to eventually step up to the Southern League.
