Margate Football Club is an English football team based in the seaside resort of Margate, Kent, currently playing in the Isthmian League Premier Division. The club was known for a number of years during the 1980s as Thanet United. The club was founded in 1896 and joined the Southern Football League in 1933. After a spell in the Kent League after World War II the team returned to the Southern League in 1959 and remained there until 2001 when they gained promotion to the Football Conference, the highest level of English nonleague football. Their stay at this level saw the team forced to groundshare with other clubs due to drawn-out and problematic redevelopment work at their Hartsdown Park stadium, and during the three years spent away from their own ground they were expelled from the Conference National and subsequently relegated to the Isthmian League. The team, nicknamed "The Gate", have to date reached the third round proper of England’s premier cup competition, the FA Cup, on two occasions. On the second of these occasions they played Tottenham Hotspur, a First Division team and the reigning UEFA Cup holders.

Early years
Margate Football Club was founded in 1896 as an amateur club, playing friendly matches on local school grounds.[3] In the years prior to the First World War the club played in several different amateur leagues, with little success, and played at various grounds in the Margate area before settling on a pitch at what would later become the Dreamland amusement park in 1912.[4] This ground

Post-war years
After the Second World War the Gate continued to play in the Kent League under new manager Charlie Walker, who led the team to two Kent League championships but was then controversially sacked.[5] The team slumped during a succession of rapid managerial changes which only ended in 1950 when Almer Hall was appointed manager, a post he was to hold for the next twenty years. Under Hall the team won a host of local cup honours and reached the rounds proper of the FA Cup on a number of occasions, but never managed to match this success in league competition.[11] In 1959–60 Margate returned to the Southern League after the Kent League folded, and in 1962–63 won the Division One championship and with it promotion to the Premier Division.[10] Two years later the club turned full-time professional but this policy proved financially untenable when the team were relegated back to Division One in 1965–66. Nonetheless, they won promotion at the first attempt and returned to the Premier Division in 1967.[10] During the 1970s Margate endured severe financial problems and a series of mediocre league seasons, but took part in two famous FA Cup ties. In 1971 the Gate lost 11–0 to Bournemouth, with Ted MacDougall scoring a cup record nine goals.[12] Then, a year later, Margate beat Swansea City and Walton & Hersham to set up a third round tie against First Division Tottenham Hotspur, then UEFA Cup holders. A record crowd of over 14,000 packed into Hartsdown Park for a match which Margate lost 6–0.[3]

Inter-war years
After the war Margate joined the original Kent League, but in 1923 the league suspended the team due to financial irregularities and the club promptly folded. A year later the club reformed, initially under the name Margate Town, and returned to the Kent League, still playing at Dreamland, but folded again due to heavy debts.[5] In 1929 the club reformed once again and moved to its present home at Hartsdown Park, leasing part of the park from the local council for conversion into a football stadium. Around this time Margate signed a Dutch player, a highly unusual move in an era when it was almost unknown for Continental players to move to English clubs.[7] Goalkeeper Gerrit "Gerard" Keizer, who joined the Kent club from Ajax Amsterdam, later went on to play for Arsenal.[4][8] From 1934 until 1938 Margate, by now playing in the Southern League, served as the official nursery side for Arsenal.[9] Under this arrangement the London club regularly loaned promising young players to Margate in order for them to gain match experience. Star players such as Eddie Hapgood also turned out for Margate whilst regaining match fitness after injuries.[5] In the second season of this arrangement, 1935–36, Margate reached the third round proper of the FA Cup for the first time, losing 3–1 to Blackpool after defeating Queens Park Rangers and Crystal Palace in the earlier rounds, but shortly after this the club had to step back down to the Kent League for financial reasons.[10]

Thanet United era
On several occasions in the 1970s Margate had discussed a merger with neighbours Ramsgate to form a new team representing the whole Isle of Thanet, which was seen as the solution to the financial problems being experienced by both clubs. The negotiations floundered, however, and Ramsgate ultimately had no involvement in the formation of Thanet United F.C. in 1981, which turned out to be purely a name change for Margate. When Thanet District Council announced that it would not be prepared to put any funding into Thanet United, the two clubs finally completely abandoned the idea of a merger.[5]

finished the season in eighth place. In the 2002–03 season the team began groundsharing at Dover Athletic’s Crabble Stadium while redevelopment work took place at Hartsdown Park, but various problems stalled the planned redevelopment.[16] On the pitch, Margate enjoyed more success in the FA Cup when, after defeating Leyton Orient in the first round, they were drawn at home to Cardiff City in the second round, but lost 3–0 at Crabble. The following season, despite finishing sixteenth, the Gate were forcibly relegated one division due to the ongoing delays and problems with the redevelopment plans for Hartsdown Park.[10] Margate spent the 2004–05 season in the Conference South, now groundsharing at Ashford Town.[17] Amidst ongoing issues with the redevelopment work, which at one point made it seem very likely that the club would fold completely,[3] Margate were again relegated to the Isthmian League Premier Division.[10]

Thanet United badge The Thanet United era saw a run of generally mediocre seasons in the Southern League Southern Division, with financial problems continuing unabated and a series of managers coming and going. In January 1989 the club came close to relegation to the Kent League and possible total collapse, but in March a new board took over, who reverted the club’s name to Margate Football Club for the 1989–90 season and appointed Trevor Ford as manager. Success still eluded the club on the pitch, however, even after the signing of former Football League players such as Mike Flanagan and Mark Weatherly, who later took over as co-manager and led the club to a Kent Senior Cup win, a rare triumph in this era.[5]

Return to Hartsdown Park

Chris Kinnear era
In 1996, the club’s centenary year, the club appointed Chris Kinnear as manager.[13] In 1997–98 he took the team to the first round proper of the FA Cup where they played Fulham in a home tie that drew a crowd of 5,100. Although the Gate took the lead, the Cottagers eventually won 2–1.[14] The following season saw the club finally win promotion to the Southern League Premier Division, albeit only after an appeal was lodged against the league’s initial refusal to allow the team promotion due to the club failing to carry out necessary ground improvements in time.[15] The Premier Division championship followed in the 2000–01 season, and with it promotion to the Football Conference.[10] The 2001–02 season was Gate’s first ever season of Conference football and they

Margate (blue shirts) in action in 2007 In August 2005, Margate returned to Hartsdown Park after three years in the wilderness. During an indifferent season manager Kinnear was controversially suspended.[18] Robin Trott was placed in temporary charge as player-manager in April 2006 and, after an unbeaten five game run, was given a oneyear contract at the end of the season. After Margate narrowly missed out on the play-offs in 2006–07 the club announced that Trott was to be given a new contract for the 2007–08 season.[19] Shortly before the end of the season, however, Trott was sacked.[20] His replacement, Barry Ashby, was himself sacked two months into the 2008–09 season.[21] Shortly afterwards, the club narrowly avoided being subject to High Court action

over unpaid debts to the Inland Revenue.[22] The club finished the season in 19th position in the table and is expected to be relegated to Division One South.[23]

Colours and crest
Margate’s current colours are blue shirts with white trim and blue shorts, but the team have worn a number of other colour combinations. The club’s earliest known colours were black and white stripes.[24][25] By the 1920s the club had adopted plain white shirts (with the team having the appropriate nickname of "The Lilywhites") but in 1929 changed its colours to amber and black. In 1949 the colours changed once again to blue and white.[5] During the Thanet United era, the team wore plain white shirts,[26] but when the club’s name changed back to Margate in 1989, the blue kit was re-adopted. The club’s current crest is a simplified version of the coat of arms of the town of Margate,[27] incorporating a lion conjoined to a ship’s hull (a reference to the arms of the Cinque Ports)[28] and the white horse emblem of Kent.[29] Previous crests have included the full town arms, the letters "M.F.C." above a lighthouse, and the letters "M.F.C." superimposed on a football.[30] Margate’s shirts have borne various sponsors’ logos but the most notable was that of the pop group Bad Manners, whose name appeared on the team’s kit as part of a sponsorship deal with their record label in the late 1990s.[31] Lead singer Buster Bloodvessel was running a hotel in Margate at the time and actually joined the football club’s board of directors.[32]

The stadium in Hartsdown Park has been Margate’s home since 1929,[5] the same year the park itself opened to the public.[33] Little development of the stadium took place until 2002,[34] when the club launched an ambitious scheme to completely redevelop the site. The club moved out and the old stadium, which was constructed mainly from timber and corrugated iron,[35] was demolished in early 2003, but the local council disputed the plans submitted.[36] Although planned to be completed by August 2003,[37] the redevelopment dragged on for three years, mired in issues regarding planning permission for the

commercial facilities the club wanted to build in addition to the stadium itself.[38] The team spent three years ground-sharing with other Kent clubs, but club officials’ failure to confirm a return date to Hartsdown led to Margate’s expulsion from the Conference National in 2004.[3][39] In 2005 the club was finally able to return to the ground, albeit with prefabricated stands and temporary buildings in place.[40] The club’s ultimate plan involves a stadium with a capacity of 5,000 forming part of a complex incorporating a hotel, fitness centre, conference centre, all-weather pitch and ten 5-a-side pitches.[36] Although it was announced that work on the 5-a-side pitch complex was to begin in May 2007,[41] ground was not in fact broken for a further four months.[42] The Hartsdown Football 5s officially opened on 9 December 2007, with a 32 team tournament.

players Paul Merson, Ray Parlour, Kenny Sansom, Kerry Dixon, Neville Southall, Clayton Blackmore, Mark Bright, and Steve Sedgley were guests as the centre opened. The Hartsdown Football 5s will see an income stream to the football club, as well as a community use scheme which gives access to the centre for local schools.[43]

In the 2007–08 season Margate’s average attendance was 531, the sixth highest in the Isthmian League Premier Division, but a drop of over 20% compared to the previous season.[44] During their three seasons in the Conference National, from 2001–02 to 2003–04, the club’s average home attendances were 1,233,[45] 684,[46] and 562.[47] For the last two of these three seasons the team were playing in Dover. Margate mascot Margator The club’s official mascot is Margator, a seven-foot green and yellow alligator. The mascot was introduced to the club for the home game against Maidstone United on 17 November 2007. Margator can be seen at all first team home games and was the brainchild of director Terry Painter.[49][50]

Statistics and records
Margate’s best ever league finish since the establishment of the Alliance Premier League in 1979 was an 8th place finish in Conference National (level 5 of the overall English football league system) in 2001–02.

1935–36 and 1972–73, and reached the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy in 2001–02.[10] The club’s biggest ever winning margin in a single match was 12–1, a score they have achieved twice,[51] firstly against Deal Cinque Ports in an FA Cup First Qualifying Round match in 1919–20 and again against Erith & Belvedere in the Kent League in 1927–28.[52][53] The highest recorded attendance at Hartsdown Park was 14,169 for the visit of Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup in 1972–73.[54] This figure is unlikely to be broken in the foreseeable future, as even after its planned redevelopment is completed, the ground will hold less than half this number of fans.

Margate’s main rivalry is with Thanet neighbours Ramsgate, with whom Margate contest the Thanet derby.[81] After many years

playing in different leagues the two clubs were able to renew their rivalry when Ramsgate joined Margate in the Isthmian League Premier Division in the 2006–07 season. The attendance of 1,676 when the two sides met at Hartsdown Park was more than double Margate’s average home crowd for the season.[82] Another of Margate’s rivals is Dover Athletic.
