Caldicot Town AFC  History

Caldicot Town AFC ....formed 1953


Caldicot Town AFC has its beginning back in 1953.  Then, with voluntary help from the community the necessary funds were raised and after much hard work two pitches were laid at King George V playing fields.  The 'green wooden hut' was erected to serve as changing rooms with a small shower area.  The club then entered the East Gwent League. In the 1963/4 Season a second side was formed to play in the East Gwent Division 2.

Throughout the 60's Season the club was successful in winning the East Gwent Division 1 & 2, the Watkins Shield, the Benevolent Cup, The Gill Cup and the Argus Shield.

In 1966, the Senior side joined the Monmouthshire Senior League Division, now known as the Gwent County League.  During the late 70's and early 80's the club won the Gwent Senior League Division 1, on two occasions, as well as winning the Senior Cup and Amateur Cup.

In December 1975 the original Clubhouse was built in Jubilee Way.  This incorporated a small bar, a lounge, changing rooms and shower facilities.  Since then the clubhouse has been modified and upgraded and now boasts four players changing rooms, a referees room, shower and toilet facilities, a large function room, a new lounge, a well equipped kitchen and outside patio areas complete with bench seats.

1979 saw the formation of Caldicot Town Junior Section.  This gave local boys the opportunity to play competitive football at both Local and County Level.  It is also a source of future players for the seniorteams.

In 1986 the club achieved its ambition of election into the Welsh Football League.  A lot of hard work by many people had to be done to achieve this goal.  The ground had to be enclosed with a high perimeter fence and barrier put up around the pitch itself.  Also the changing facilities had to reach the high standards set by the League. The playing fields are not forgotten and are re-seeded and maintained each year. We also have covered spectator accommodation plus excellent floodlights.  As a result of these facilities the club is regularly requested to hold representative games at Local and County Level.

We have now enjoyed over 25 seasons in the Welsh League, winning the Division 2 Championship 1989/90 & 2015/16 seasons and came runners up in Division 1 gained promotion to the top Division 1990/91.
