In 1999 Sudbury Town FC and Sudbury Wanderers FC merged to bring to an end the local rivalry and set up an opportunity for all the football enthusiasts in the town to pull together and build a really competitive club.
Sudbury Town had enjoyed the excitement of an FA Vase Final at Wembley but the two clubs were locked together in the Eastern Counties League and their combined strength was soon obvious for all to see in the first five seasons of the century. The new AFC Sudbury won five consecutive championships and completely dominated non-league football in the East Midlands.
All the new club’s managers have enjoyed success, with Nicky Smith having the toughest challenge when ‘The Yellows’ first joined the Southern League, but the club have now also experienced two spells in the Isthmian League for four seasons in which they have usually featured in mid table.
