Newport Pagnell Town followed in our footsteps in 1982; UCL Division One champions the year after we achieved the same feat. For most of the time since Boro’ left the competition, The Swans played in the Premier Division. Of course, there were bumps on the way; twice relegated back to Division One. But the amount of time spent down a level was much less than in the Premier. A first season in the Spartan South Midlands League, however, came to an abrupt end in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Newport Pagnell Town: The Facts
Willen Road, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 0DF
In 1963, the Swans formed under the name Newport Pagnell Wanderers; taking up position in the North Bucks and District League in 1964. It didn’t take long for them to see a bit of success either. They would win the Division Three Shield at their first attempt, before winning the Division Three (1966) and Division Two titles (1967) in quick succession. Not only that, but Division One honours were achieved three years on the spin. The reserves, meanwhile, were Division Two champions in 1969 and 1970.
It’s a bit of a monopoly on North Bucks and District success here, innit?
In 1971, that run of success prompted the Swans to chance their arm at the South Midlands League. The following year saw them change their name from Wanderers to Town. They only spent two seasons in the South Midlands League, however. After finishing second in Division One in 1973, they decided to move to the United Counties League. In 1976, the Swans were promoted from Division Two as runners-up; leaving them primed and ready in Division One when Stevenage Borough burst onto the scene in 1980.
