AFC Rushden & Diamonds is an English football club based in Rushden in Northamptonshire. They played their opening season at Kiln Park, the home of Raunds Town, in 2011–12 and subsequently shared the Dog & Duck ground with Wellingborough Town from July 2012 to Summer 2017. A groundshare agreement with Rushden & Higham United was agreed for the 2017–2018 campaign. The club was formed in July 2011 by supporters after Rushden & Diamonds, a former Football League club, who were expelled from the Football Conference and liquidated. At an open meeting chaired by a supporters group called SaveRDFC, a mandate was agreed upon to create a phoenix club, fully owned and controlled by its supporters. A team was created and accepted into the Northants Senior Youth League for the 2011–12 season, while a senior team played in the United Counties Football League Division One for the 2012–13 season.
