Potton United

Currently Playing In:

United Counties League Division One

 

A Bedfordshire club which was formed after the second world war and first competed in The South Midlands League, moved on to play in Division One South of the Central Alliance before settling happily in The United Counties competition in 1961

‘The Royals’  enjoyed a wonderfully consistent period in the eighties when top eight finishes were achieved in eleven consecutive seasons from 1978 until 1989. Inspirational manager Terry King was in charge when Potton United won the championship twice in 1987 and 1989 and consistently featured in local cup finals.

Sadly, the nineties brought inconsistent results and at the turn of the century three consecutive poor seasons ended in relegation to Division One. It only took three seasons to bounce back and with Richard Newman in charge, the Division One championship was followed by two exciting seasons as Runners Up in the Premier Division.

Since suffering another relegation in 2009, Potton United are rebuilding and will be looking forward to another spell challenging for honours in the Premier Division.
