Needham Market

Formed just after the first world war, the club has competed in local football practically ever since.  However as champions of The Suffolk & Ipswich League in 1996 the club moved up a level into The Eastern Counties League.

For the next six years ‘The Marketmen‘ proved they were certainly good enough to compete at this level and never finished below fifth place. Two mid table seasons followed, but a wonderful run, including the runners-up spot twice, prepared the club for a serious challenge and Needham Market took their place in The Isthmian League as Eastern Counties champions in 2010.

The club settled comfortably at the higher level and once again their impressive consistency saw them comfortably finishing in the top four for their first three campaigns, but a more difficult 2012-2013 campaign will test the clubs’ character.
