CLUB SONG

'It's a Grand Old Flag'

It's a Grand old flag, It's a high-flying flag

It's the emblem for me and for you

It's the emblem of the team we love

The team of the Chocolate and Blue

Every heart beats true for the Chocolate and Blue

As we sing this song to you, what do we sing?

Should old acquaintance be forgot

Oh, keep your eye on the Chocolate and Blue!

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Like every other athlete and sporting club that has ever existed, we want to win every football game and win every premiership. Like everyone else, we thirst for the win, however, for us winning extends beyond the football field, beyond trophies. For us, winning is a measure of effort we put in as individuals and as a collective. Winning is about the achievements we make both on and off the field. Winning is about learning and growing from any losses we make and building ourselves stronger to claim future wins.

 

With our heritage dating back over one hundred years, Kenilworth is winning as a Football club that has stood the test of time. A club which has always looked for ways to grow and develop, has always looked into the face of challenge with determination and has always stood up against adversity and defied those who think us underdogs. Time and again we have shown our strength and our worth. Time and again we have shown that not every game needs to be won to have a winning spirit, that the way we lose is just as important. We know that losing is part of the territory, it's a risk worth taking in order to improve and a risk worth taking in order to win.

 

Over time Kenilworth has been home to thousands of players and their families, supporters and volunteers who have all helped us to expand as a club and as a family. Having such a commitment from an extensive range of people has us winning.

 

As football is not an individual sport, it is a team sport and with our club now being home to a diverse range of teams from juniors to seniors, masters and inclusive and with males and females representing the chocolate and blue, our philosophy takes a 'One Club, One Family' approach. Time has shown us the importance of banding together as a club, connected through the faces of many, represented by all teams and those who band around us. Time has shown that together, we are stronger.

As such, when our teams take to the ground, they go with the support of everyone here at Kenilworth, a part of

'One Club, One Family,'
