Barton Town Old Boys Football Club was formed at the start of the 1995/96 season as a result of the amalgamation of the two longest established and most successful clubs in the North Lincolnshire town of Barton upon Humber, Barton Town FC and Barton Old Boys FC.

Barton Town had been in existence for well over 100 years, being formed in 1880, and playing out of their Marsh Lane ground, still the home of the new club, since 1927. “ Town “ was one of the founder members of the Lincolnshire League, winning it in 1960/61, before embarking on its “golden era “ over the following two decades, initially in the Midlands League and then, particularly, in the Yorkshire League The club returned to the Lincolnshire League in the early 1980’s, winning the ?rst division title in 1981/82. The“ Swans “ remained in the league for the next 10 years before dropping out for the usual off-field reasons, lack of help and finance. Barton Old Boys had been a member of the Scunthorpe and District League since 1959. eventually boasting two sides, in the first and second divisions.
Over the ten year period from the mid-19B0’s, “ Old Boys “ were arguably the most consistently successful team in the League, culminating in 1994/95 with the winning of all four major Scunthorpe League competitions, a ?rst at the time.
In order to progress the two clubs merged and started the 1995/96 season in the Lincolnshire League.

Barton Town Cricket Club

Marsh Lane
Barton upon Humber, DN18 5JD

Barton Town Cricket Club was formed in 1849 and is the oldest sporting institution in Barton Upon Humber. The Club moved to its present Marsh Lane ground in the early 1920’s and although there are no records of where the club used to play, scorebooks from the early days confirm the existence of the club. (more research is being done on the subject as I speak)

No one quite knows how many teams the club operated in its early days but at the present time the club operates four seniors teams, two of which play on Saturdays and two teams which play on Sundays. The club also operates a friendly XI when fixtures allow. The club also operates four junior sides, U11’s, U13’s, and U15’s.

The two Saturday teams operate in the Lincolnshire League while the two Sunday teams operate in the North Lindsey League. The junior teams play in the Scunthorpe and District Junior Leagues.

In recent years the club has also ventured into the overseas market and brought in some players. First of all in 2003 saw Kane Arendarcikas (Australia) come and play, 2004 saw Grant Lewis (Australia), 2005 was Dean Carroll and Steve Ellis (Australia), 2006 Samuel Felix (West Indies), 2007 2008 we had the company of Scott Hanna (Australia), in 2010 Simon McInerney (Australia), 2011 Reece Ogle (Australia) and another Aussie for 2012 Adam McDermott

All of whom have brought something to the club to take it forward.

North Lincolnshire Council’s youth sport programme

North Lincolnshire Council’s Youth Sport programme provides a diverse range of multi sport opportunities across North Lincolnshire for young people aged eight to 19 years old (up to 25 with learning disability). At present North Lincolnshire Council and its partners provide over 30 sessions per week.

The sessions provide a safe environment for young people to come along and get active, learn new skills, chill out with friends and maybe make some new ones.  The sessions are informal and multi sport based, with the emphasis being on fun, enjoyment and getting involved. This means that young people could be playing football, cricket or basketball and the next could be playing ultimate Frisbee, street golf, rock-it-ball, Street Dance and many more activities!

The project aims to give young people the chance to take part in positive activities and develop new social and leadership skills. Opportunities are also available for young people to volunteer on the programme and take part in relevant training.
Coaches from Scunthorpe United provide the coaching and leadership at all the sessions.

For those participants over the age of 16 we offer the opportunity to become a volunteer. This means the young person will gain experience and access to training to improve their skills. This is the ideal starting point for anyone wanting a career in sports coaching and leadership.

All the sessions are free, so what are you waiting for? Get involved today!

Please note these sessions are continuing while building work at Baysgarth School progresses
