The Club

Foxton Football Club is one of the oldest and foremost clubs in the local area with records of friendly matches taking place in the very early 1900’s with nearby villages, and official affiliation to the Cambs FA in 1907.

Records show that Foxton played in the County Junior Shield in 1908-10 and the County League in 1910-11.

A Foxton and District football league was formed in 1920, with local teams playing in an invitation cup competition for clubs within about 6 miles from Foxton. The cup was first presented in 1921 by Captain Cuthbert Foster of Foxton Hall, from where the Foster Cup took its name.

The Club has played at the village recreation ground now since the 1950’s and before that games took place on land provided by farmers within and around the village. The Rec is public land and its excellent surface is also enjoyed by Foxton kid’s football team ‘Dynamo Foxton’, the cricket club and for village community activities.

Andy Cambridge of Foxton FC was awarded Cambs FA groundsman of the year in 2003 and 2020, and runner up in 2019. Andy also won the prestigious, I.O.G – National Volunteer of the Year, in 2019, for his work on the recreation ground.

Foxton Football Club is a registered Charter Standard Community Club.
