About The 1st Team

Our First Team play at Barrington Park and compete in the Uhlsport sponsored Hellenic Premier League, which is step 5 of the football pyramid system. Promotion is 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 comprises of the Premier Division, Division One East, Division One West and there are two divisions for Reserve teams as well as two leagues for veterans.

The league was regionalised ahead of the 2000-01 season and Shrivenham gained promotion to the Premier League back in 2004-05 when we won the League 1 West Championship and again as runners up in 2017-18.
