LFS Corinthians is an Irish club based in the Offaly region. The club was founded on the 30th of August 2006 by kelenehan.

The club was relegated to Division V in its first season, Irish Season 18. They instantly bounced back to IV in Irish Season 19 by capturing the Division V.211 title with 14 victories from 14 games.

In Irish Season 20 LFS Corinthians were again relegated after an heroic effort to stay in Division IV.21. They lost out by 1 point to Consternation, a club from the Cork region. In the first game of the season LFS Corinthians had a very disappointing 2-2 draw with Dublin based side, Kilcock. The failure to win this game, which looked like a definate 3 points, cost LFS Corinthians their Division IV status.

The club was relegated to Division V in its first season, Irish Season 18. They instantly bounced back to IV in Irish Season 19 by capturing the Division V.211 title with 14 victories from 14 games.

In Irish Season 20 LFS Corinthians were again relegated after an heroic effort to stay in Division IV.21. They lost out by 1 point to Consternation, a club from the Cork region. In the first game of the season LFS Corinthians had a very disappointing 2-2 draw with Dublin based side, Kilcock. The failure to win this game, which looked like a definate 3 points, cost LFS Corinthians their Division IV status.

In Irish Season 21 LFS Corinthians had the best Irish Cup campaign in their history. They were defeated by Longford side LTFC Heros in the 3rd round. The league campaign was again successful with Corinthians promoted back to Division IV. One loss and a draw were the only dropped points during the season.

Irish Season 22 had the worse of starts for LFS Corinthians when they lost in Round 1 of their Irish Cup campaign. They were defeated by Donegal side Donegal County FC in a Penalty Shoot-out. The league campaign also had a dreadful start with Corinthians defeated in the first 8 games of the campaign. However, most players in the squad were sold or sacked and a new group of players won 3 games and drew 1 in their last six fixtures. Corinthians then played a Relegation Playoff against Dublin side Firhouse Carmel and ensured their Division IV status with a fine 5 - 0 home win.

Irish Season 23 & 24 both saw Corinthians finish 5th in the table.

Club Colours

Season 21 Home Kit
Season 20 Away Kit
Season 21 Away Kit

LFS Corinthians originally wore a green kit with gold trim as their home kit and a white kit with gold trim as their away kit, as most teams without supporter wear.

The kit was first changed for Season 20.

The Season 20 Home Kit had a jersey which was primarily white. It had blue shoulders with an orange trim and a blue navel with an orange trim. The togs were primarily blue with a white trim. The socks were blue with an orange and white trim. The Season 20 Away Kit had a jersey which was primarily black. It had blue shoulders with an orange trim. The togs were primarily black with a blue trim. The socks were blue with an orange and black trim.

LFS Corinthians launched a new kit for the first game of Season 21. The White Home Jersey has an Orange and Blue diagonal sash. The Black Away Jersey also has an Orange and Blue diagonal sash.

Club Crest

The original LFS Corinthians Crest
The 2nd LFS Corinthians Crest

LFS Corinthians first showed their club crest to the world in Season 21. The crest was designed by the Club Owner kelenehan. It was a very basic design which lacked artistic flair. However, the club was described very well in the crest. The main colours were orange and blue to match the club owners', Lenehan Financial Services, corporate identity. The words Lenehan Financial Services were placed on the crest as was the LFS logo. Underneath this was two Corinthian facemasks and a figure of a footballer.

For season 21 a new Club Crest was unveiled. The logo was designed by plugger, an esteemed logomaker from The Netherlands. Kelenehan requested that the artist design a more contemporary crest which still portrayed an image of the meaning of the club name as well as keeping the club colours. The crest was accompanied by the club motto,"Nil Satis Nisi Optimum" which is a latin phrase meaning "Nothing but the best is good enough". The motto is also used by FA Premier League side Everton F.C.. Kelenehan is a lifelong Everton supporter and so it is no surprise that the motto is used by LFS Corinthians.

At the start of season 26 a new logo was adopted by Corinthians. This logo was designed by Polish designer -ZiomaL-. The logo kept the club motto and club colours, but is seen by the board of directors as more contemporary than the last logo.

LFS Corinthians play their home games at The LFS Canal Bank Coliseum. When first built, the stadium had a capacity of 12,000.

At the end of Season 18 expansion work boosted the capacity to 17,500.

The stadium was again expanded at the end of Season 21 due to the demand for extra tickets for home games by the rapidly growing fan-club, The Hawks of the Faithful. The capacity at this time was 31,320.

The stadium was again expanded for the start of Season 25.

The stadium now has a capacity of 50,475 made up of

  • 30,285 Terraces

Kurt Grogan

Kurt has been in the Hall of Fame since he was 23 years old. It's no surprise that Kurt Grogan is the first player to be inducted to the LFS Corinthians Hall of Fame.
