Caldicot Town AFC……..A Brief History Caldicot Town AFC was formed in 1953. 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. The 1963/64 Season saw a 2nd side formed and they took their place in the East Gwent 2nd Division. Throughout the 60's the club was successful in winning the East Gwent Division 1 and 2 along with 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. We again won the Gwent Senior Cup in 2012/13 season with a 1-0 win over Monmouth Town. 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 senior teams. 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 a barrier had to put up around the pitch. 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, with vandal proof shuttering 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 30 continuous seasons in the Welsh League, winning the Division 2 Championship in 1989/90 and, as runners up in Division 1, gained promotion to the top Division in 1990/91. Since then we have spent time in both the 1st and 2nd Divisions. Since being relegated from the top flight in 2010/11 season Caldicot have finished subsequent seasons (in Division 2) in ninth, tenth, sixth and fourth before last season’s success. Review of 2015/16 season: Caldicot won their final 9 games of the 2015/16 season to lift the Second Division title ahead of county rivals Cwmbran Celtic and Undy Athletic. Caldicot Town will be playing top flight football for the first time since being relegated at the end of the 2010/11 campaign. Caldicot won 24 and lost only 5 of their 30 games; finishing the season on 73 points. The history books show that the 24 wins is the highest number achieved in Division 2 in its current format. Last season’s goals were spread throughout the team but Tony Wallis finished as top score with 13. Our biggest win of the season was 5-0 at home to West End (we clinched the title with a 5-1 away win at West End). We used a total of 33 players throughout the season. Caldicot Town had a unique double last season, not only did our First Team finish as Champions of Division 2 our Ladies Team also finished as Champions of the SWWGL Division 2. Manager Mark Williams and Assistant John Burrows have added to our young side and hope to be able to hold their own in the top flight this season. Off the field the club have an ambitious plan to install 250 seats into the grandstand, by the end of the 2016/17 season, so that we comply with the ground criteria for a tier 2 license.
