Northampton Spencer F.C. is a football club based in Northampton, England. Their ground is Kingsthorpe Mill. They play in the United Counties League Division One.

History[edit]

Northampton Spencer FC was founded in 1936 as Spencer School Old Boys, from members of the old school team. In 1968, the club joined the United Counties League, and immediately earned promotion after finishing as runners-up. After starting their UCL life at Dallington Park, the club moved to Duston High School for two years before arriving at its current home at Kingsthorpe Mill in 1971. Spencer was relegated in 1981 and twelve months later finished at the foot of Division One. Fortunes were transformed by the arrival of ex-Northampton Town boss John Petts as manager and he led the Millers back to the Premier Division in 1985. Since then, Spencer has been one of the stronger sides in the league, rarely finishing out of the top ten, and winning the championship in 1991–92 with 101 points.[1]

The club is currently (2013–14) members of the United Counties League Division One, under the leadership of Ben Stone.
