Havant and Waterlooville

Altrincham Club Crest image

When two Hampshire clubs, Havant Town and Warterlooville FC merged in 1998, both had been competing in the Southern Division One of The Southern League and had finished in mid table. One year later in the same division, Havant & Waterlooville had won promotion as champions of their league.

In 2001-2002 a creditable third place was achieved in the Premier Division, but mid table was the usual placing until the top leagues were re-organized and a place was won in the new Conference South, where they have achieved six top ten finishes in nine seasons.

The most exciting achievements have been in the FA Cup with three First Round appearances between 2006-2011, and having beaten Notts County and Swansea City, the club also enjoyed the wonderful experience of a Fourth Round cup tie at Anfield in 2008, where a capacity crowd saw ‘The Hawks’ take the lead twice against Liverpool before eventually losing 2-5.
