GLASTONBURY TOWN FOOTBALL CLUB The Club was founded in 1890 bearing the title of Glastonbury Avalon Rovers. By the time the Club was competing in the FA Cup in 1901-02, losing to Bridgwater 0-2, it was known simply as Glastonbury. The first honours came before the Great War when the Club won the Somerset Junior cup in the years 1912-13 and 1913-14. The Club entered the Western League in 1920 and played in it until 1922 when the Second Division of that league was disbanded. It was during this period that the Club moved to the Abbey Park ground with its famous slope, and celebrated the occasion by beating Yeovil 2-1. Glastonbury returned to the Western League in 1931, having spent the intervening years in the Bristol & District and Bristol Suburban Leagues. Semi-professionalism was adopted in 1934, the first opponents in the Professional Cup were Bristol City to whom the Club lost 2-0. In the 1935-36 season the Club reached the final of the Somerset Senior Cup for the one and only time, beating Keynsham Town in the final at Wells, on Easter Monday, 4-2. The golden years of Glastonbury Football Club were a period of five seasons from 1947-48 to 1951-52 when the Club won the Western League twice, were runners-up twice and third once. They also won the Somerset Senior League twice and the Professional cup once in 1948. To cap it all the Club reached the First Round proper of the FA Cup in the 1950-51 season when 4,000 spectators crowded into Abbey Park to watch their team narrowly lose to Exeter City 2-1. The sixties saw more success with the Club lifting the Western League Challenge Cup in 1965-66, and the Championship of the Western League in the 1969-70 season. In 1982 the Club moved to its current ground at Abbey Moor Stadium where the floodlit pitch is surrounded by a greyhound track. Just the one honour was achieved there, in 1994-95, when the best known Glastonbury player of the eighties, Paul Randall, came back to play for the club he left for Bristol Rovers, and then Stoke City in the old First Division of the Football League: with his help Glastonbury took the Runners Up spot in Division One of the Western League. Promotion to the Premier Division was declined by the Club, and there followed a period of decline that ended with the Club being relegated from the Western League in 1998-99 after more than sixty seasons continuous play. The following season, playing in the Somerset Senior League, Glastonbury were relegated again and played in Division One until 2002-03 when a poor season saw the club relegated once more. In the summer of 2003 the club changed its name to Glastonbury Town FC: with current manager Andy Cribb at the helm the team finished fifth in Division Two of the Somerset County League in 2003-04 with a squad solely made up of local players. The Reserves team also went through a period of decline from 1998-99, suffering relegation three times in succession and falling from Division Two of the Somerset County League to Division One of the Mid Somerset League where they have played since 2001-02. In 2003 Abbey Moor Stadium changed hands and the new owner has greatly improved the facilities there with much work done to the pitch, the clubhouse, car park, floodlights, etc.
