Currently Playing In:
Midland Combination Premier Division
The original Atherstone club was formed in 1887 and played its early football in the local leagues before joining The Birmingham Combination in 1911 where they competed until moving to The West Midlands League in 1964.
A step up to The Southern League was celebrated in 1972 and in the following season promotion was won to The Premier Division. Sadly the improvements couldn’t continue as the club went into liquidation in the Summer 0f 1979.
A year later Atherstone United joined The West Midland League and although the club once again enjoyed seventeen years of Southern League football, a second liquidation once again eventually halted progress.
Back under the title of Atherstone Town in 2004, the club really made a spectacular return, winning consecutive promotions from The Midland Combination Division One and their Premier Division to earn a place in the Midland Football Alliance. Just two seasons later a third spell as a Southern League club was earned as Alliance champions.
Sadly, it was soon apparent that the club wasn’t ready for Southern League football but after their resignation, another disappointing season took ‘The Adders’ back into the Football Combination. Hopefully the tide has now turned and the club will steadily climb back to the levels they previously enjoyed.
