Coalville Town Football Club
is a football club based in Coalville
, currently playing in the Northern Premier League Division One South
Coalville Town Football Club were formed in 1926 as Ravenstone Miners Athletic
, the latest in a long line of association football clubs from the village of Ravenstone. Nicknamed the Ravens, they played for many years in the Coalville & District Amateur League, and later the North Leicestershire League, where they won numerous honours. In 1991 this led to election to the Leicestershire Senior League
Division One, following the construction of a new club house at their Ravenslea home. Following the local council's refusal to grant permission for floodlights, the club took the decision to relocate to Coalville. A change of name followed to Coalville F.C.
, with the club becoming the first senior side in the town of Coalville since the demise of Coalville Town Amateurs in 1954.
In their second season in the Senior League the club clinched the runner-up spot and with it promotion to the Premier Division. In 2001 new manager Lee Harriman arrived and immediately led the club to the league title, a feat they repeated the following year which saw them promoted into the Midland Alliance for the 2003–04 season. In the 2004–05 season, the club entered the FA Cup
for the first time ever and reached the first round proper where they narrowly lost to league side Wycombe Wanderers
