History

Formed in 1925 following the deformation of the old Maidstone United, Maidstone Invicta were originally a youth team but stepped up to the big leagues after being elected into the Kent County League in 1993. In 1995, they changed the club’s name to Maidstone United.

The club played its way through the Non-League pyramid, winning the Isthmain League Division One South in 2014/15 before gaining successive promotions a year later as they gained promotion to the National League for the first time in 2016.

The club were without their own stadium until 2012 when the Gallagher Stadium was opened at the beginning of the 2012/13 season.

Last Season

The Stones finished 14th in the National League last season, and an extra point would’ve taken them as high as 11th. From their 46 games, they picked up 16 wins, 10 draws, and 20 losses, scoring 59 and conceding 75 in the process. Throughout the season, they amounted 58 points. Both meetings between the sides ended in home victories. 2-1 at Maidstone and then 3-0 to the Silkmen at the Moss Rose.
