BRIEF HISTORY

Dunstable Town Football Club was formed in October 1883 and is currently managed by Joe Deeney and assisted by Kyle Durcan.

The club in its history has won the Colwyn Cup, The Beds County Floodlit Cup, The Bedfordshire Senior Cup, The Bedfordshire Premier Cup and The Eastern Junior Cup, as well as numerous non-league titles.

 

Nicknamed ‘The Blues’, the football club play at Creasey Park, although it was redeveloped in 2011 and is one of three teams in English football to have gone an entire season unbeaten, in which they won 36 of their 42 games and drew the other six, winning the SSMFL Premier League in the 2012/13 season.

This was followed by a second promotion in as many seasons from the Southern League Central Division to the Southern Premier Division. The club now competes in the Spartan South Midlands Football League Premier Division.

The club has been home to a number of high profile footballers in its history, with the likes of Manchester United great, George Best, who played in 3 friendlies in the 70s to raise vital funds, as well as spending £25 of his own money on new nets for the goals.

Alongside Best, Jeff Astle also played for the club in the 1974/75 season, scoring 34 goals. Although this may seem like a large tally, it doesn’t compare to the 54 Lee Roache scored in the ‘Invincibles’ season. The striker and now Dunstable legend left at the end of the 15/16 season.​

In 2021 Dunstable Town Football Club relaunched as a Community Benefit Society (CBS), which is a recognised legal entity structure, supported by the FSA (Football Supporters Association) and regulated by the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority). This means that the club is owned equally by its shareholders and anyone can become a shareholder with equal voting rights. All shareholders are equal and no person has overall control.
