From a small village in Northamptonshire, Irchester United were one of our very first opponents in senior football. The Romans, at the time, were actually called Irchester Eastfield; changing the name in 1980 after an apparent merger with Wellingborough Eastfield. It wasn’t until 1990 after we’d long since gone our two different ways that they went back to calling themselves United.

We’d also say that our 1981-2 United Counties League Cup Quarter Final loss after a replay is the first of many penalty shoot-out failures. It seems harsh. But we feel true. Anyway, after two 1-1 draws, the Romans went through; the shoot-out ending 4-3.

Irchester United Travel Information – Distance: 49 miles

By Road

Go north on the A1(M) and A1 until you get to the exit for the B1048 and B645. Here, go left and take the B645 towards Higham Ferrers; staying on this road for nearly 16 miles.

At a roundabout, take the third exit onto the A6 for almost a mile. Then, take the second exit at the next roundabout for the A45. You’ll cross a railway bridge after four miles. Be aware, however, as the next left – Chester Road – is what you want. Continue down the High Street, before turning right for the B569. After 0.3 miles, turn right for Alfred Street.

The car park at the ground might be a bit tight. But it’s always worth a quick look before you resort to street parking.

By Rail

A railway line skirts around the eastern fringe of Irchester. And there’s a Station Road in the village. But these count for nothing, sadly. So, no train trip for you here.
