Wolverton Town

Wolverton’s story starts in the late 1880’s. The ground ‘Wolverton Park’ was built in 1885 and the club started in 1887 in the Southern League as Wolverton L & NWR FC. After the First World War Wolves joined the North Bucks League and finished runners up in 1920/1. In 1938/9 Wolves won the South Midlands League and after the war were runners up in the Spartan League. In the late 1940’s & BR was added to the club name and in 1957 reached the fourth round of the FA cup losing to Peterborough. In 1961 Wolves joined the United Counties League and in 1969/70 finished runners up and reached the final of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup. Famous local names include John Field, Ian Capel and Billy Atterbury in the 1960s. In the 1970s international cricketer Wayne Larkins played for the club. Peter Walton, the ex-Premier League referee and now TV adviser also had a spell with the club. In the 1980’s Wolves re-joined the Spartan League, then the Athenian League and then the Isthmian League finishing runner up in the Second Division in 1986/7. This proved to be the catalyst to the Wolves demise due to the additional costs involved and the Wolves finally changed their name firstly to MK Wolverton Town and then AFC Wolverton and re-joined the South Midlands League. They eventually folded in January 1992.
