Didcot Town

Altrincham Club Crest image

Although formed in 1907, Didcot Town played in local football until joining The Metropolitan League in 1957. After seven seasons, the Hellenic League was attracting ambitious clubs in the Oxford, Berks & Bucks ares and provided a positive opportunity. ’The Railwaymen’ joined in 1963 for, what turned out to be, a long consistent period of Hellenic membership.

Premier Division football was enjoyed for the vast majority of their forty two years in the competition, although two brief periods in Division One, in 1985 and 1993, only lasted for two campaigns on each occasion. At the turn of the century Didcot Town were an accepted power in Hellenic football and, under manager Stuart Peace, the Championship and promotion was achieved in 2005-2006, one season after the club had won The FA Vase at White Hart Lane.

Southern League Football has proved a tough challenge, but one season was experienced in the Premier Division and the club is building to sample that level football once again.
