Last Updated: 09 October 2021

Established in 1960, Thrapston Venturas are now known by the less exotically-named Thrapston Town. And it was during our UCL days that we first met. For all our dominance during our 1980-1 Division One title-winning campaign, however, the Thrapo made us work. After grinding out a 2-1 win in our first-ever meeting at BHW, we drew 1-1 at their place on Valentine’s Day 1981. To cap the campaign off, we beat them much more comfortably in the United Counties League cup final that year.

After plodding along in Division One after we left, the Thrapo did win promotion to the Premier Division eventually. That happened as 2010-1 runners-up. But their stay at a higher level didn’t last long; their one and only Premier Division campaign seeing them come bottom and conceding more than 100 goals. In 2019, Town (as they’d now been called since 1996) left the UCL for the Northants Combination.

The car park at Thrapston Sports Club is a small one. Your best bet, therefore, is likely to be on-street parking.

By Rail

Thrapston is another one of those places that isn’t blessed by a rail link. And so that rules the train out…
