Dereham Town

Currently Playing In:

Isthmian League Division One North


An Eastern Counties club with a long history of football in Norfolk. Since its formation in 1884,‘The Magpies’ have competed in Dereham & District, Norwich & District and The Norfolk & Suffolk Leagues before joining The Anglian Combination in 1965.

With just one year spent in Division One, Dereham Town became a regular in the Premier Division’s top ten and in the 1997-1998 campaign gained promotion to the Eastern Counties Football League as Anglian Combination Champions.

Early years competing at the senior level were difficult, but two Norfolk Senior Cup Triumphs in 2006 and 2007 boosted confidence and having been a top ten club for six seasons, with celebrations as Runners Up in 2011, ex player Matt Henman was in charge as the championship and promotion to The Isthmian League was celebrated.
