Wimborne Town

Currently Playing In:

Southern League Division One South West


One of the oldest and most respected clubs in Dorset, Wimborne Town played in local football since their formation in 1878, until qualifying for a place in The Southern League in 2010.

Working their way through The Dorset League and the Dorset Combination,‘The Magpies’ renowned for their black & white striped shirts, joined the Western League in 1961 and remained until 1987, when the club joined the newly formed Wessex League which offered fresh competition with less traveling.

Wimborne became the most consistent club in the competition, finishing in the top seven in all but two of the twenty three seasons and winning the Championship in 1992, 1994 and 2000.

In addition, the club brought great pride to their league by winning The FA Vase at Wembley in 1991 after one of the best Finals on record. So a place in the Southern League was a just reward for such consistent performances when promotion was gained after finishing as Wessex League runners-up in 2010.
