Reading Town

Currently Playing In:

Hellenic League Premier Division


The club was formed in 1966, England’s famous World Cup year, when the country was uplifted and very positive. However, the new football club was introduced as ‘Lower Burghfield’ and played in The Reading Combination with much success and then the Reading & District League. However, the club kept changing its name and competed as ‘XL United’, ‘Vincents United’ and ‘Reading Garage’ before moving on to The Chiltonian League as ‘ITS Reading’ and then ‘Reading Town’ in 1993.

In 1994 as Chiltonian Champions, ‘Reading Town’ joined The Combined Counties League and spent thirteen, usually difficult seasons, before joining the Hellenic League in 2008. The club’s best seasons produced third place finishes in The Combined Counties 2004 and Hellenic League 2010, both under the guidance of special manager Colin Millard, who took up the reigns for his third spell in 2013.
