Crockenhill F.C. is an English football club based in the village of Crockenhill near Swanley in Kent. Previously they were members of the Kent County League Division One West after being relegated from the Premier Division in the 2007–08 season, a poor season in which the club was plagued by players leaving to sign for other teams. in 2011 they joined the new Kent Invicta Football League
The club was established in 1946 following a friendly between two local pub sides, and immediately joined the Kent Amateur League. The team played in the Aetolian League from 1959 to 1964 and later the Greater London League, before joining the Kent League upon its formation in 1968.
The team were Kent League champions in 1983 but were forced to leave the Kent League in 1999 when new rules were introduced requiring all clubs to have floodlights. Since returning to the Kent County League the Crocks have won the Division One (West) championship (2000–01) and the Premier Division title (2003-04).
