Their History

Established in 1880, the club was initially closely linked to the Richard Garrett Engineering Works. They reached the final of the Suffolk Senior Cup in 1892, 1897 and 1904, losing on each occasion, although the club did win the Junior Cup in 1895. In 1894 Leiston joined the North Suffolk League, which they played in until 1909. In 1900 the club also joined the Ipswich & District League (later the Suffolk & Ipswich League) and were champions in their first three seasons. In 1904 they transferred to the South East Anglian League, but left in 1907 before rejoining in 1911 (when it had been renamed the East Anglian League).Between 1912 and 1914 the club also played in the Ipswich & District League.
