So would you say we're really 200yrs old

In theory as a sports club I'd say yes,  201 today.  To be fair there are a number of football clubs around the world that claim linage back a long way based on originally being a 'sports' (be that cricket, rugby, athletics or that Spanish game where you use a bicycle mudguard to hurl a ball against a wall).

Still going strong after ten years since our reformation ! Not exactly strong due to Covid of late. However, we have accumulated more than our fair share of silverware and in so doing have made our way to the top divisions of both the Money Map Sheffield Midweek Alliance and also the Mansfield and District Sunday League covering an area from Nottingham to south east and south west Sheffield.

 

Our ten year history is extensively covered in terms of results and statistics so if you're listening Dunsby then dip your bread.

Your patronage is most welcome.
