The Club was founded in 1994 after a school training session attracted lots of children, suggesting there was scope for a team at under 10 level. Initially we played at Newlaithes School, in the Carlisle Youth Under 12 League. The following season, when we moved up to Under 14, we changed grounds to Richardson Street to accomodate pitch size
Between the years 1994 – 1998 we developed new Boys teams ranging from Under 10′s to Under 16′s.
In 1998 Newlaithes merged with another local football club called C.M.B. to form C.M.B. Newlaithes, this giving us scope to branch out and develop all areas of the Football Club with C.M.B. who were already the owners of our present football ground, RICKERBY PARK, which now, after extensive work by our grounds staff, boasts 4 Junior and 2 Full Size football pitches.
Every year we hold our own Festival of Football at our ground in Rickerby Park, held over a full weekend, there is a seperate Tournament Day each for Girls Teams & Boys Teams. Over 1000 Children of all ages, participate in these tournaments making it one of the most successful tournaments in Cumbria, if not the North of England.
In 2003 C.M.B. Newlaithes were awarded the F.A. Charter Standard Community Club Award, which we are very proud to be holders of, which shows the Professionalism & Dedication of all our Members & Coaching staff.
In 2007 Crown Newlaithes were awarded the North East Charter Standard Community Football Club of the year.
To date we are now running seventeen teams, which consist of 10 Boys Teams ranging from Under 7′s to Senior Level, & the Girls Section, which consists of 7 teams ranging from Under 10′s to Under 16′s
And not forgetting the Coaching Staff, which stands at well over 30 F.A. Qualified Coaches and is still developing as we speak!
In 2006 the C.M.B. Group changed their company name to Crown
