Located in the very southern edges of Yorkshire, halfway between Sheffield and Worksop, the former mining village of
Kiveton Park is an unlikely contender when it comes to listing
the hotbeds of world football. But the football club that represents the area has an impressive history almost as old as the
village, and indeed the sport.
Formed a few years after the opening of the local colliery in the
1860s, Kiveton Park FC has produced league champions, cup
winners, internationals, and, in the words of renowned sports
journalist Patrick Barclay – “…at least one great man, widely
considered the father of football as we have come to know it.
Not bad for a small village of 6,000 people…
The club used to play on the ground of Wales Cricket Club
(which was destroyed to make room for the M1 motorway in
1960), but has played at its present home on Hard Lane for over
The ground was paid for by the local Miners Welfare scheme
and also hosts the village’s cricket club. Initially Park played on
the pitch nearest Hard Lane, but in the 1960s they moved to the
central pitch and built a stand to hold 200 seated spectators.
The senior squad this season had a shaky start to the season
before going on a nine game winning streak, before a 1-0 defeat
to the league leaders. This secured a mid table finish and high
expectations for coach Chris Nelsons team next season. The club
are always developing and two new teams will be joining the
ranks with additions in under 21's and under 15's.
