Non-League Club Directory Logo


The town of Andover really hasn’t had a very happy history of looking after its football clubs. The game was played competitively in the area from the 1890s but after starting in The Salisbury & District League, the majority of the club’s past was spent between the Hampshire, Southern and, more recently, The Wessex Leagues.

The club never appeared to be financially comfortable and the task of keeping up with old rivals as the non-league family developed all over the country, appeared at times to be too much for the club who suffered regular administrative re-organisation.

It’s sad to look at the names of the dedicated football men who worked so hard for the club’s team management and one also thinks of the fans who have been regularly disappointed over the years. So we hope this feature and the photographs will remind the supporters of Andover’s senior football club of some of the good days and we wish the town luck in building a football team that can proudly represent Andover once again at a competitive level.
