NPTFC History

Newport Pagnell Town Football Club was founded in 1963, initially as Newport Pagnell Wanderers, playing on Bury Field Common.
In 1964 they entered the North Bucks League and won Division 3 in their first season. Soon after that they won the Division 2 and Division 1 titles in consecutive years.
In the 1971-72 season the Wanderers joined the South Midlands League, playing at the Youth Club in Wolverton Road.
In 1972 the club moved to the new facilities at the Willen Road Sports Ground and changed its name to Newport Pagnell Town.
In the 1973-74 season Newport Pagnell Town joined Division 2 of the United Counties League. Two years later they were promoted to Division 1. They won the Division 1 Championship in 1981-82 and were promoted to the Premier Division.
A few ups and downs followed during the next two decades: relegated in 1985-86, promoted back to the Premier Division in 1991-92, and then relegated again in 1996-97.
The club won the Division 1 Championship again in 2001-02 and has been in the Premier Division ever since.
In 2009-10 and again in 2010-11 the club won the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy.
The best FA Cup achievement was reaching the Second Qualifying Round in 2008-09.
In the 2016-17 season the club reached the last 8 of the FA Vase before losing to a strong South Shields team (the eventual winners of the competition) in front of more than 3000 spectators on Tyneside. In recognition of this achievement the club was presented with a Town Award by Newport Pagnell Town Council, and in the Milton Keynes Sports Achiever of the Year 2017 awards Newport Pagnell Town Football Club’s first team received the Team of the Year award.
A further award in 2017 was a Berks & Bucks FA award to the club chairman, Steve Handley, for his contribution to grassroots football.
In 2017-18 the club finished third in the UCL Premier Division, missing out on promotion by just three points. A good season for the youth section included winning the Berks & Bucks Under 15 county cup and also a very encouraging season for the club's first girls team, the Under 12 Swans.
From small beginnings in 1963, Newport Pagnell Town has become the highest placed non-league club in the Milton Keynes area, and is a FA Charter Standard Community Club, with a youth section of around 30 teams in addition to its senior first and reserve teams and a successful Sunday team.
