'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A Look At Daventry Town F.C

Nicknamed the Purple Army they currently play at communications park which as a capacity of 3,000. Although they were formed in 1886, it wasn't until 1987 that they tasted any real success when they moved to the Northants Combination League. Managed by Willie Barrett they won back to back titles, the Combination and the Premier Division.

In 2009-10 season they won promotion to the Southern League Central by becoming Champions of the Counties League under the guidance of Ady Fuller. The following season they almost won promotion to the Southern Premier league finishing 3rd and losing 2-0 to Hitchin in the Play-Off Final.

The following season the former Aston Villa, Charlton and Republic of Ireland midfielder Mark Kinsella took over as manager, despite bringing in former team mate Lee Hendrie the team struggled and he was sacked.

The team are currently 4th in the Southern Central League, just 6 points behind leaders Barton Rovers, although they have played 5 games less due to their Cup exploits.

They have two former Northampton Town players playing for them, Scott Cross and Liam Dolman. Scott Cross has been on fire this season, scoring goals for fun, not afraid to shoot on site, forcing the keeper to make a save.

Liam Dolman made 45 League appearances for the Cobblers scoring just once. During his time at Northampton, it was once alleged at the time he was the only obese player to be playing full-time in the football League.

Known has Bully, a superb Captain on the field, shouting out advice and spreading passes across the full length of the field with ease, there are not too many players that will go in for a tackle when Bully is on the ball.

I would like to congratulate Daventry Town on making it to the FA Cup First Round for the first time in their history which is a great achievement. I hope the club and their fans have a great day out.
