Netherfield Albion F.C.
The Netherfield Albion FC club crest was designed by Managing Secretary, Shaun Pates, in 2000.
Pates had previously searched local libraries and newspaper archives in a bid to find some of the lost history of the Netherfield club since its formation (as Albion) in 1931. While he found some statistical records and a few old team photos - no club crest or badge information came to light.
Pates therefore decided to create a crest for the club. Seen above, the design uses the club's original colours (from the 1930s) of amber and black.
While there is no proof, it is believed that the Netherfield Albion FC of today links back to the former local clubs of Netherfield St. George's (1895-1903) and Netherfield Rangers (1903-1925) who at the time were one of the countries top amateur sides. Records do seem to confirm that there has never been more than one Netherfield club at any one time.
The centre of the current club's crest, therefore, shows the flag of St. George and rampant lion of England. These represent the name of the founder football club in Netherfield - St. George's.
The crest also shows the current club's year of formation and eight red stars, which are purely for decorative purposes.
Thanks to Daniel Peacock, Web Host at Netherfield Albion FC, for the above crest and information.
