Holbeach United

Currently Playing In:

United Counties Premier Division

 

The club was formed in 1929 and developed in local Lincolnshire football until joining The Peterborough competition in 1946.  Nine years later ‘The Tigers’ joined the Eastern Counties League for a seven year spell.

In 1962 Holbeach United spent one season in the Midland Counties League, but since then the club have experienced one of the longest consecutive membership of a non-league competition, as they are still a very valued member of The United Counties Football League.

Their form has been outstandingly varied with spells at the foot of the league and some great seasons challenging at the top. Their first championship was won in 1990, when they also won the League Cup and a County Cup, then in 2002 they followed a runners-up finish by winning the championship in the next season.

A difficult spell between 2006 and 2011 was weathered and the wonderful championship winning campaign in 2012-2013 was the club’s third United Counties title.
