History

Leicester Road Football Club was formed immediately after Hinckley United Football Club went into liquidation in October 2013 to continue the development of the youth and junior players left without a club and was incorporated on 4th November 2013 by the four surviving directors.

The former Head of Football Development and all his staff transitioned over to Leicester Road along with the U21, U18, U16, U15 and U14 squads. This enabled all the squads to continue their football development seamlessly without any impact from the liquidation.

The U18 Youth Team continued in the Midland Floodlit Youth League Premier Division. The U16, U15 and U14 squads all retained their membership of the Midland Junior Premier League. The U18 Youth Team completed a remarkable Midland Floodlit Youth League Premier Division North, Midland Floodlit Youth Cup and Leicestershire County Cup Treble.

The senior squad was established from the U21 and U18 squads and applied to the National League System and were allocated to the Midlands Football League. Leicester Road Football Club started the 2014 – 2015 season in the Midlands Football League Division 2 and finished second to Coventry United to gain promotion to Division 1.

Leicester Road Football Club was awarded the FA Chartered Standard in October 2015.

During the next four seasons Leicester Road finished in the top five of the Midland Football League Division 1 every season and in the first three of those seasons also won the Midland Football Leagues Fair Play Award. Throughout the same period the club retained the same manager and largely the same squad with most players amassing over 150 games.

When the 2019-2020 season was eventually expunged, Leicester Road sat in top spot using the unweighted points per game mechanism and when 2020-2021 season was curtailed again Leicester Road Football Club were top using the unweighted points per game mechanism.

Then when it was announced that the NLS would continue with its restructuring plans, Leicester Road were invited to apply for upward movement and as a result were place at Step 5 in of the United Counties League Premier Division South for the 2021–2022 season. Prior to the start of the season the club changed its name to Hinckley LRFC.

Hinckley LRFC started their maiden UCL season in top form completing the first 21 league games without conceding a point finishing the season with 98 points from 38 games and were automatically promoted to Step 4 and allocated to the Northern Premier League Midlands Division.
