Thrapston Town: Club Profile
Established in 1960, we knew Thrapston Town as the more exotically-named Venturas; meeting them during our UCL days. For our dominance during our 1980-1 Division One title-winning campaign, the Thrapo made us work. We ground out a 2-1 win in our first-ever meeting at BHW, before drawing 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.

Thrapston Town Travel Information – Distance: 49 miles
Head up the A1(M) and A1 towards Peterborough; switching to the A14 for the Midlands. You’ll want to exit at Junction 13, which takes you onto the A45 for Wellingborough. Take the fourth exit at the roundabout and join the A605 for 0.3 miles. At the next roundabout, however, take the first exit and go left onto Huntingdon Road.
Continue onto High Street for a short while, before turning right for Chancery Lane. You can find the ground on the left at the junction with Meadow Lane.
The car park at Thrapston Sports Club is a small one. Your best bet, therefore, is likely to be on-street parking.
Thrapston is another one of those places that isn’t blessed by a rail link. And so that rules the train out…
