Kendal Town were first brought to life in 1919 in the beautiful Cumbrian town of Kendal, on the very edge of the Lake District. They were originally known as Netherfield AFC, a name that they would keep for most of their long history, and the reason that hardcore supporters still refer to them as The Field.
It wasn't until 1998 that the club finally decided to change their name. the town of Kendal was expanding, so they wanted people from outside of the town to have more of an idea of where they were from, so changed their name to Netherfield Kendal. This name didn't last anywhere near as their first one, and they changed it again two years later to Kendal FC - the label they go by today.
