Key Historical Milestones

Successfully played in Cirencester & Swindon District Leagues and Wiltshire County Level over many years. Excellent League and Cup successes particularly in the 1960’s, 1970’s and 1980’s.

Previous Season Summary

Our first season in the Swindon & District league finishing 4th.  Joint top until Christmas but a mix of injuries to key players and lack of squad depth meant we were not able to press for top 3. We exited both the Domestic and Wiltshire County Cup at Quarter Final stage. This was very much a learning season for us. Nick Gregory finishing 2nd in the Premier League Golden Boot was a particular highlight. Also completing the Charter Standard Accreditation was a real positive.

Aspirations for this Season

To push for top 3, although reduced to 9 teams it will be extremely tight this season, we want to compete as far as possible in all competitions. The local committee has secured excellent funds to continue the refurbishment of the Bradstone Clubhouse, including the bar area.

Future Growth Aspiration

To create a squad that is able to compete in the Wiltshire County League. After inspection from the Wiltshire FA, the facilities we have are perfect to support our growth plan, and it is now down to the squad and team success over the coming seasons to build on a promotion when the time is right.
