The current (and first ever) crest of Loughton FC was designed by Andrew Sheers in the year 2000 for use on the club's new website.
To begin with the crest consisted of the circular 'LFC' centerpiece placed inside a quartered shield. The shield also contained other elements which were later scrapped as they had no relevance to the club.
A 'two-tone' circle - similar to that used by many European clubs such as AC Milan - was then introduced. This was followed by a banner block displaying the club name - and finally the four numbers marking the club's year of formation - to make up the crest seen and used today.
The font 'Garamond' was selected for the main 'LFC' letters at the crest's centre as it was felt this gave a traditional feel to the crest that the club required.
Thanks to Andrew Sheers, Programme Editor and Player at Loughton FC, for the above crest and information.
