About The 1st Team

Our First Team plays at Barrington Park and competes in the Uhl Sport sponsored Hellenic League One West, which is Level 10 of the football pyramid and is a feeder league to the Southern League above and the Gloucestershire County League, Oxfordshire Senior League, Thames Valley Premier Football League and Wiltshire League below.

The league was established in 1953 and as of this season, comprises of a Premier Division, Division One East, Division One West and two divisions for reserve teams as well as two leagues for veterans. 

The league was regionalised ahead of the 2000-01 season and our only promotion to this day was when we won the West Championship title in 2004-05.
