Club History - Wolverton Town FC to Unite MK FC

Unite MK

Wolverton Town was reformed in 2004 and won various leagues and cups in New City Heating Sunday League and North Bucks District Football League competitions before being accepted into the South Midlands League for Season 2012-13.

Wolverton's story starts in the late 1880's. The ground 'Wolverton Park' was built in 1885 and the club started in 1887 in the Southern League as Wolverton L & NWR FC. After the First World War Wolves joined the North Bucks League and finished runners up in 1920/1. In 1938/9 Wolves won the South Midlands League and after the war were runners up in the Spartan League. In the late 1940's & BR was added to the club name and in 1957 Wolves reached the fourth round of the FA cup losing to Peterborough. In 1961 Wolves joined the United Counties League and in 1969/70 finished runners up and reached the final of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup.

In 1980's Wolves re-joined the Spartan League, then the Athenian League and then the Isthmian League finishing runner up in the Second Division in 1986/7. This proved to be the catalyst to the Wolves demise due to the costs involved and Wolves finally changed their name firstly to MK Wolverton Town and then AFC Wolverton and re-joined the South Midlands League. They eventually folded in January 1992.

In 2004 Wolverton Town FC was reformed in the MK Sunday League and in 2005 the Saturday team entered the North Bucks League. The club moved into its new home, The New Park, at Field Lane in Greenleys on 20th July 2011 and entered the first team into the Spartan South Midlands League in 2012-13 with the reserves following in 2013-14.

A veterans team was started in 2011-12 and has since won the Veterans Plate, the Veterans Cup twice plus the North Division title, the 2014-15 season saw the reintroduction of a new team in the MK Sunday League.

The club found itself without a home in January 2016 due to the social club being found to be in breach of its lease forcing the club to find temporary homes for all of the teams. The Sunday team was withdrawn in March 2016 and the Reserves were not entered into the 2016-17 season. The veterans team have formed a new club, playing at Castlethorpe - Wolverton Town (Veterans) FC from June 2016.

In July 2016 the decision was made to change the club name to Unite MK FC after agreement was made with Milton Keynes Irish Centre at Manor Fields, Fenny Stratford, to become the club's new permanent base.
