Wantage Town

Currently Playing In:

Hellenic League Premier Division

 

A well established club near the Oxfordshire and Berkshire border that was formed in 1892 and developed in the Swindon & District, North Berkshire and Reading & District Leagues.

In 1956 Wantage Town joined the progressive Hellenic League where they have been a member ever since in their Alfredian Park ground.

Most of the club’s Hellenic history has been enjoyed in the Premier Division, although relegation has taken the club down to the first Division on four occasions in the last thirty years, but one was the 1994 demotion because the club’s lack of floodlights.

‘The Alfredians’ have only once remained in The Hellenic First Division more than one season, and that was when they gained promotion after two seasons between 1994-1996. The 2010-2011 campaign saw Wantage Town take the Hellenic Championship, but much to the frustration of their supporters, the club was prevented from moving up to Southern League Football as their ground wasn’t enclosed effectively enough to prevent spectators from entering the ground without paying.

With experienced manager Gary Ackling now in charge and the club determined to gain promotion, Wantage Town will be expected to be challenging for the Hellenic title once again.
