Barton Town Old Boys FC
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 has 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 in the Yorkshire League.
The club returned to the Lincolnshire League in the early 1980s, winning the first 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 has 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-1980s, the ‘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 first at the time.
In order to progress, the two clubs merged and started the 1995/96 season in the Lincolnshire League.

North Lincolnshire Council’s Youth Sport Programme provides a diverse range of multi-sport opportunities across North Lincolnshire for young people aged 8-19 years old (up to 25 with a learning disability).
The sessions provide a safe environment for young people to come along and get active, learn new skills, chill out with friends and 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 during one session, and at the next they 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.
For those participants aged 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!
