London Scottish Football Club was founded on Wednesday 10th April 1878 at Mackay's Tavern in Ludgate Hill. The playing strip has been blue shirts with a red Lion, white shorts and red Socks for more than 130 years. Since the club was formed, it has produced in the region of 220 Scottish Internationals and four Lions captains.

In 1987, the national league structure was formed and in 1996 the game turned professional. A promising start to the professional era unfortunately ended in insolvency, so the original amateur club rejoined the leagues, but was effectively demoted 9 leagues by the RFU.

Subsequently, the club has gained 6 promotions in 9 years and now plays in National League 1, where it anticipates enjoying another very successful season.
