Stotfold

Currently Playing In:

Spartan South Midlands Premier Division.

 

After formation in 1904 the club’s first competitive football was played in The Biggleswade League before settling down for a thirty year spell in The North Hertfordshire League.

The club’s present ground, which they are using for a second spell, was originally in a field
called ‘Roker’ presumably by a Sunderland supporter involved with Stotfold Athletic, the first tenants.

In 1951 Stotfold moved across to The South Midlands League and qualified for Division one in 1953 and The Premier Division two years later. Years of consistant challenging the leaders brought the championship in 1981 and four years later ‘The Eagles‘ joined The United Counties League.

The club has given loyal service to their three leagues and it was at their 24th attempt that the United Counties championship was won under the managerial guidance of ex Football League player Ian Allinson.

Stotfold are now back in The Spartan South Midlands League where they will hope to emulate their excellent record in the eighties.
