Club History

Our Story

London cranes F.C Started as Uganda East FC. It was created by Ugandans living in East London, hence our former name. Most of our players were originally from in East Africa, central, and southern Africa, with the majority coming from Uganda and Rwanda.


We started playing football together in 1997 at West ham Park, then moved to Wanstead Park in 1998/99. We moved back to West ham Park at the end of 1999, where we continued playing for fun.

In 2003 we officially registered our club as Uganda East FC with the Essex FA and joined London City Airport Sunday League(LCASL) for regular Competitive football. In the pioneering season (2003/04) we were crowned the Cup Kings after winning the Cup League and Second Division Cup.

After our first season in Division Two in LCASL we were promoted to the top division in our league, the Premier Division for the season 2004/05.
