Our Opponents

Huntingdon Town FC was formed in 1995, and after a period in Cambridgeshire Leagues they joined the UCL in 2003. They were promoted to the UCL Premier in 2012, and finished in an impressive fourth place in their first season in the Premier, followed by the runners up position last season. They are nicknamed the Croms based on the fact that Oliver Cromwell was born in the town in 1599.

After a bright start to the season with a long unbeaten run their fortunes have been rather mixed in recent weeks, with manager Seb Hayes stepping down early in the new year, to be replaced by former Sileby assistant manager Ian Edge.

Declan Rogers joined the Diamonds from Huntingdon, where he was the top scorer and club captain.

The Croms club website is here and their Twitter feed here. They play in red shirts and shorts.
