Leyton Football Club are a non-league football club based in Leyton, in the London Borough of Waltham Forest. Leyton are unrelated to their Football League neighbours Leyton Orient. The club was founded in 1868, and has disbanded several times in its history (late 1890s, 1911 and 1914). In 1975 the club merged with Wingate to become Leyton-Wingate F.C., until 1992 when they reverted back to plain Leyton. In 1995 the club merged with Walthamstow Pennant and moved away from Leyton Stadium to become Leyton Pennant F.C., now known as Waltham Forest. A new Leyton Football Club was set up in 1997, and following a High Court case in 2002, successfully won the right to be recognised as an official continuation of the original club, making it the second oldest existing club in Greater London, after Cray Wanderers. Chelsea have played two matches against Leyton, an FA Cup tie and subsequent replay in 1911.
