Ampthill Town are one of the sides we came up against in our time as a United Counties League side during the early 1980s. Our record against the Amps, however, isn’t great; a 1-0 win in January 1984 the only time we got the better of them in seven attempts. Of course, you can say we had the last laugh with our progress during the years that followed. The Amps stayed in the United Counties League until the 1990s, at which point they moved to the (Spartan) South Midlands League.

Who are Ampthill Town?

We know the Amps formed in 1881. But what we don’t know is what happened between then and 1951; not even the official club website giving us anything to work with. The milestone year that was 1951, meanwhile, is when the club showed up in the South Midlands League Premier Division. It’s a competition they’d win in the 1959-60 season, before coming up just short a year later. Just three years further on, they ended up at the foot of the table; 1964-5 being their last season in the SML before joining the United Counties League.

In 1968-9, the Amps finished sixth in Division Two. Yet, they still gained promotion to Division One. We don’t know the reason for that either. One year later and their reserves joined the league in what was – at that time – Division Three. We say “at that time because all divisions were renamed in 1972. The Amps’ reserves then won promotion from what was now Division Two up into Division One. The reason why Boro’ didn’t meet the reserve side in 1980 is because they were shunted into a dedicated division for such teams.

The Amps’ first team were relegated from the UCL Premier Division in 1987; spending four years in Division One – before leaving for the South Midlands League. Shortly after, the league merged with the Spartan. The reorganisation saw the Bedfordshire side placed in the Senior Division. In the years that followed, there’d be promotion and relegations; the club spending its time in Division One from 2015 onwards through the Covid years. And it’s where we found them at the time of writing this in summer 2023.

There is a modest car park at the ground, which we can’t see there being too many issues with.

By Rail


The railway actually runs quite close to the ground. But Flitwick is the nearest station and it’s a few miles down the road; not one, therefore, you’ll want to be walking.
