For Boro’ fans of a certain vintage, Tring Town are one of those once-familiar faces we long since left behind on our journey up the pyramid. But how much do you remember about our fellow Hertfordshire side? It’s not unusual for us to deal with clubs that are no longer with us. There is no shortage of sides that have gone bust over the years we’ve been doing this football lark.

This, however, is slightly different.

In 2003, the west Herts club disappeared from the football map (for a time, at least) because Tring Athletic absorbed them. And when we say “for a time”, it’s only because we mean that a new Tring Town formed in 2016.


Tring Town: The Facts

Who are Tring Town?

It could be a hard one to put together. The current Tring Town AFC aren’t the same lads we used to hang around with. And there ain’t a major amount for us to go on. According to the ever-amazing Football Club History Database, the first incarnation of Town hit the scene in 1963 as members of the Spartan League. After 12 seasons, the club moved on in 1975; this time to the Athenian League. And then what happened after that?

Why do we know them?

Well, they spent just two seasons in the Athenian League. In 1977, the club signed up to the Isthmian League. Taking up their place in Division Two, there’s not much to bang the drum about. Fourth place in 1983-4 is the best they managed. But this is where Boro’ come in too. With more teams coming into the Isthmian fold, Div Two split north and south. Tring went north. And so were we. See how it all comes together now?
