Ilford Football Club Heritage Project – can you help?


Redbridge Museum is working with Ilford F.C on an exciting new project about the history of the club. Founded in 1881, Ilford F.C has been one of the most successful amateur clubs in the country.

We would love to hear from anyone with Ilford F.C items or memories. The project will lead to a major exhibition, book and new website, supported by an award from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Please contact Michael Foley, Ilford F.C Chairman via email mj.foley@aol.co.uk or Redbridge museum redbridge.museum@visionrcl.org.uk020 8708 2317.
