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.

Jacob Guy. Defender Signed from Caldicot in 2011 the former Cardiff, Swansea centre half was an instant hit adding much needed nous to the Kingfishers’ defence and went on to win Supporters’ player of the season. The first ever awarded! Strong in the air, good on the deck!
Defence - (Kit sponsor required): Tough tackling, left sided player, brave as a lion. This season is a great chance for “Puss” to show just what he is capable of. Amazingly, given where he normally plays, he has been top goal-scorer in the club in previous seasons with goals coming mainly in the East Gwent and Reserves.
Defence: Jim Bob returns to the club after a brief spell at Chepstow Town. Jim is very composed which will help us play out of the back this season. He is also solid in the air and strong in a tackle. Great signing. Jim will prove to be an excellent signing this season.
Defence: Will has a very good left foot and can play at both left full back and left midfield. A good addition to the squad who will be looking to push for a first team place.
Midfield: A versatile and industrious player, Dave wears his heart on his sleeve and will give no less than 100% whenever selected.
Midfield: The most senior member of the squad Daisy has a wealth of experience at this level and without doubt still has the quality to play in a number of positions. A great first touch and reads the game superbly.
Forward: Product of our youth team. Karl is a big, strong, quick player with a good eye for goal. He has been top goal scorer for the reserve team the last two seasons and will be looking to push for a first team place after some good appearances as substitute last year.
Forward: Also a product of our youth team. Dylan is a very explosive player who has the confidence to run at defenders and cause problems. With a great work rate and eye for goal Dylan has also looked very sharp over pre season and will be looking to break into the first team.
|Tyler Morgan-Huggett||Defence: A product of the youth academy Tyler broke into the 1st team at the end of the 2013/14 season. Tyler is a versatile defender who can play anywhere at the back and he will be looking to break into the first team squad again this season.|
|Rory Garey||Defence / Midfield: Rory enjoyed a very successful first season with the club with a number of solid performances in both defence and centre midfield. After stepping up from East Gwent Rory has shown he is more than capable of playing at a Welsh League standard.|
|Ashley Palmer||Defence: Ash enjoyed a very successful first season at the club and contributed with a number of assists and goals. He is a strong defender, good with both feet and his long throw has proven to be a great asset.|
Goalkeeper - (Kit sponsor required): Louis has deserved a crack at first team football this season after impressing in our reserve side in recent seasons. A great shot stopper who will be vying with Wess for the number 1 shirt.
|Ben Davidson||Goalkeeper: Ben started last season as Caldicot’s number one keeper after some fine performances and clean sheets. Ben unfortunately sustained a bad injury and missed the second half of the season. Ben will be hoping to regain the number 1 jersey this season.|
|James Gidney||Midfield: Gidders, who signed from local rivals Undy Athletic, proved to be a great signing midway through last season and contributed with 9 goals from the last 12 games showing he has a really good eye for goal. He is also extremely fit and has great energy.|
|Ryan Williams||Forward. Ryan returns to us (previously in our U19’s squad) signing from Chepstow Town in February 2016. Ryan suffered two serious leg injuries but fought back to be a part of the Chepstow Town 1st team squad. A previous captain of the Chepstow Gwent County youth side.|
|Gareth Wesson||Goalkeeper: Wesson came into the team for the 2nd half of last season after an injury to Ben Davison. He is a very experienced goal keeper (ex Plymouth Argyle, Newport County) and his performances showed that during the run in to winning the league.|
Defence - (Kit sponsor required): A product of the youth academy. Tyler broke into the 1st team at the end of the 2013/14 season. Tyler is a versatile defender who can play anywhere at the back and he will be looking to break into the first team again this season.
|Tudor Morgan Huggett|
|Kyle Allan McCabe|
Defence - (Kit sponsor required): Reserve team manager’s player of the year 2016/17season.Very good left foot and can play at both left full back and left midfield. Hopefully he will avoid injury and push for a regular first team place.
