Club History

Bugbrooke St Michaels FC was founded in 1929 and replaced Bugbrooke Utd who wound up in 1927 after playing since 1910.

 

 

In its early years BSMFC won the central village league from 1932 ? 37 and were runners up in the NFA Junior cup. Other successful teams have arisen in each decade since then with the 60?s and 70?s sides being extremely prodigious in winning trophies.

 

 

 

 

The club joined the UCL in 1985 and won promotion to the premier division in 1999. This enabled the club to play in the FA cup and FA Vase for the first time. Since joining the UCL the club has run 4 teams 2 of the teams playing in the Northants Combination League.

 

 

 

 

The club has developed a mini and youth system since the 1990?s and currently has 12 mini and youth teams. The U 16?s won the Northants County Cup in 2004 and other youth teams are regularly successful in the Northants Youth Alliance League.

 

 

 

 

In 2003 the club became a Community Charter Standard Club and were NFA Community club in 2004/2005. In 2007 the U10?s were invited to represent the NFA in a six a side tournament at the new Wembley stadium as a reward for the clubs hard work in the community.

 

 

 

 

The club has worked hard to improve its facilities since 1980 and has invested a lot of time and money to make them some of the best in the County. They were awarded a Football Foundation grant in 2006 to build new changing rooms and improve social facilities. These were opened in 2007 by John Gregory who is connected to the village by marriage. Improvements continue to be made to the pitch and ground to enable the club to move forward.

 

 

 

 

2011/12 saw the first team finishing 3rd in their division, and winning the Northants Junior Cup. During the season the club completed all the necessary ground requirements to enable promotion and were offered this option for the 2012/13 season. The club thought long and hard about this, but the decision was made to stay in Division 1.

 

 

 

 

In 2011/12 the Reserves saw success by winning the Reserve Division 2 title, & followed this up by securing the Lower Junior Cup in 2012/13.

 

 

 

 

The 2014/15 season was the most successful for the Reserve team so far, seeing them win both the League title & the KO cup. They almost made it a treble winning season, unfortunately losing the LJC on penalties.

 

 

 

 

There was also a title winning success for the U18 team, many of whose players had come through from Bugbrooke U7 level.
