Loughborough Dynamo Football Club is a football club based in Loughborough, Leicestershire, England. They currently play in the Northern Premier League Division One South.


Loughborough Dynamo was formed in 1955 by a group of pupils from Loughborough Grammar School, the name "Dynamo" taken from Moscow Dynamo, who were touring the UK at the time. Club meetings were reportedly held in secrecy in the school library as the school did not approve of pupils playing football.

After a couple of seasons playing friendlies, Dynamo joined the Loughborough Alliance League Division 3 in 1957 and quickly climbed through the divisions to become league champions, although they were denied entry to the Leicestershire Senior League due to a lack of facilities. In 1966 the club switched to the Leicester and District League, where they remained until 1971 when they were accepted into the East Midlands League, but inability to adjust to the higher standard of football caused an exodus of players and a string of disastrous results, leading to relegation to the Central Alliance League, followed almost immediately by further relegation back to the Leicester & District League.

In 1989 Dynamo finally stepped up to the Leicestershire Senior League Division One, and after a lean spell they gained promotion to the Premier Division in 2002, followed by winning the championship in 2004 and with it promotion to the Midland Football Alliance.
