The Orpington Club:
The first Orpington club was formed in 1896 purely for Blacks and led to some controversy over the acceptance of the Buffs so they formed a separate club which is still going today. Other colours formed their own clubs and in 1910 there were 7 clubs in total, most of them not surviving post war.
The Bantam club was formed in the 1950s and the present Orpington club was reformed in 1975 with the amalgamation of the Bantam club and the Black Orpington club.
