Club History

Newport Pagnell Town Football Club was founded in 1963, initially as Newport Pagnell Wandereds, playing on a pitch on Bury Field Common.


 

In 1964 the entered the North Bucks League and won Division 3 in the first season. Soon after that they won the North Bucks Division 2 and Division 1 titles in consecutive years and then dominated the North Bucks League for three seasons.


 

In the 1971-72 season the Wanderers joined the South Midlands League, using facilities at the Youth Club in Wolverton Road.


 

Then in 1972 they finally moved to the new facilities at the Willen Road Sports ground, their current home. With this move the club changed its name to Newport Pagnell Town.


 

The 1973-74 season saw Newport Pagnell Town join Division 2 of the United Counties League. Two years later they were promoted to Division 1, where they stayed until they won the Division 1 Championship in 1981-82 and were promoted to the Premier Division.


 

A few ups and down followed during the next two decades: relegated to Division 1 after finishing bottom of the Premier Division in 1985-86, promoted back to the Premier Division as Division 1 runners up in 1991-92, and then relegated again in 1996-97.


 

After once more winning the Division 1 championship in 2001-02, Newport Pagnell Town were back in the Premier Division again and have remained there ever since.


 

The club?s most consistent spell saw five consecutive top six finishes in the UCL Premier Division from 2008-09 to 2012-13, with third place achieved in 2008-09 and again in 2010-11.


 

The 2009-10 season brought cup success, winning the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy, which they won again the following year. They were also runners up in the UCL League Cup in 2009-10.


 

The club twice reached the First Qualifying Round of the FA Cup, in 2010-11 and again in 2012-13, when they memorably scored 6 goals in both the Extra Preliminary Round and the Preliminary Round.


 

The best cup achievement to date was reaching the last 32 of the FA Vase in 2011-12 before losing a close match 3-2 to Ashington, from Northumberland, in front of a club record crowd of over 600 at Willen Road on what was probably the biggest day in the club?s history.


 

The 2013-14 season was less successful, a case of building the squad after losing several first team players to retirement or to clubs at a higher level, but some good performances towards the end of the season ensured that the team retained its Premier Division place for 2014-15.


 

In addition to the first team Newport Pagnell Town now has Reserves and Under 18 teams and an extensive and successful youth section. From small beginnings in 1963, it has now become the largest placed non-league club in the Milton Keynes area.
