(later renamed Gillingham F.C.) competed in a league competition. The club had been formed a year earlier but had played only friendlies and ties in the qualifying rounds of the FA Cup and FA Amateur Cup in the previous season. In May 1894, however, the club was accepted into membership of the newly formed Southern League and played its first league match on 15 September 1894 against Sheppey United. New Brompton dominated Division Two of the new league, winning all bar one of its matches, and win on to clinch promotion to Division One by winning an end-of-season "test match". The club also entered the FA Cup for the second time but could only reach the third qualifying round.
