History:

Established in 2013 by Sparsholt and Andover Colleges to further enhance their football academy programme, ATFC is the adult Senior Side that provides a vehicle for the more talented academy players to make the transition from youth to senior football. 

At the end of their first season Andover Town finished second in Wessex League Division One and were successfully promoted to the Wessex Premier Division for the 2014-2015 season.

They also finished as Runners-Up in the Andover Open Cup, losing on penalties to Otterbourne FC (having drawn 3-3 after extra-time) and went on the become the Winners of the Salisbury Hospitals Cup, defeating Bemerton Heath Harlequins in the Final 3-2

Town’s next season 2014/5 saw the team finish in a creditable 10th place in their first season in the Wessex Premier Division.

Season, 2015/6, the club finished in 4th place in the Wessex Premier League, just missing out on promotion. Finishing as second highest scorers in the league with 97 goals. The club also provided two England school boys internationals – Charlie Gunson & Adam Grange.

Season 2016/7 The team finished in 13th place in the Wessex League premier division in a season that undoubtedly had its “ups and downs”. We achieved our longest run in the F.A. Cup, our longest run of unbeaten games and, even in the tough periods, we remained one of the best supported clubs in the league.

The foundations to be title contenders were also put in place so we now have a strong squad, together with an experienced, stable management team to build on for our 2017-18 campaign.
