The Scottish League Two side, Edinburgh City Football Club was first formed in 1928 as an amateur side, akin to Queen’s Park. Although the club joined the Scottish Football League in 1931, they struggled for the next fifteen seasons and reverted to junior status in 1946. By 1955, the lease at their playing ground (City Park) expired and the club folded, continuing only as a social club.
In 1966, Postal United Football Club was established and adopted the Edinburgh City name in 1986. By the mid-1990s, this new incarnation of Edinburgh City gained admittance into the Scottish FA. They competed in the Lowland League until 2016, when they gained promotion to the SPFL.
In their early years, the original Edinburgh City’s kit featured the coat of arms of Edinburgh. By 1938, the club used an ‘ECFC’ monogram as their badge. Upon the adoption of their name by Postal United, a new badge, featuring a castle above ‘ECFC’ was used. In 1998, the current club badge was launched, featuring the same castle from 1986, encircled by their full name.
Due to the relative discontinuty of the club’s history, I decided to do away with the castle altogether, instead opting for a stylised monogram, vaguely resembling a football.
