Graham Earl (Chairman)
Shefford Town & Campton FC
It’s been a very exciting start to the season for Shefford Town & Campton FC. After a 25 year absence from the Spartan South Midlands League, the season started well with a 3-0 away win to Amersham. Last season the club won the Bedfordshire County Premier League and Britannia Cup double, but this time the club had the infrastructure to take on promotion, returning the town’s football to its former position in the league pyramid in the Spartan South Midlands League.
The management team of Scott “Granty” Grant and Dan “Checker” Gauntlett, with the support of a dedicated committee, have continued to work with local developers and our lead sponsor Warden Developments to ensure the home ground at Shefford Sport Club has continually been improved to meet the FA ground grading requirements for Step 6 football. In the past 3 seasons we have provided a paved walkway around the pitch, a pitch-side barrier system and with the support of the Football Foundation, have installed a pay kiosk, a 70 person stand and recently we completed the installation of floodlights. Having won the Bedfordshire County Premier League two seasons running, we have definitely earned our promotion.
It would be great to see the people of Shefford and the surrounding village come and support their local team and help continue the success as the club enters a new and exciting era. All fixtures can be found via www.spartansouthmidlandsleague.co.uk
Shefford football is now very much back on the map
