Arnold Town Football Club is a football club based in Arnold, Nottinghamshire, England. They are currently members of the East Midlands Counties League and play at Eagle Valley.


Arnold Town was formed in 1989 by a merger of Arnold F.C. and Arnold Kingswell,[1] adopting the yellow of Arnold and the blue of Kingswell as club colours. The new club took over from Arnold in the Central Midlands League Supreme Division, finishing third in their first season.[1]

The 1992–93 season saw the club win the Notts Senior Cup, beating Rainworth Miners Welfare 3–1 in the final,[2] as well as winning the Supreme Division, earning promotion to Division One of the Northern Counties East League. They went on to win Division One at the first attempt, earning promotion to the Premier Division.[1] The 1994–95 season saw them finish second in the Premier Division and win the President's Cup.[3]

In 1994–96 the club won the Notts Senior Cup for a second time after beating Boots Athletic 2–0,[2] The following season saw the same two clubs contest the final, with Arnold winning 1–0.[2] A fourth Cup was won in 1998–99 with a 2–1 win over Hucknall Town, and a fifth came in 2004–05 when Eastwood Town were beaten 1–0.[2] In 2012–13 the club finished 19th in the Premier Division following a 10-point deduction due to financial problems,[4] and were demoted to the East Midlands Counties League.[5]

League history[edit]


Arnold Town initially played at the King George V Ground, usually referred to as Gedling Road, until the 2007–08 season. They had hoped to move to the Eagle Valley Complex at the start of the 2008–09 season, but due to delays in the completion of the ground, they played their home matches at various grounds including Gedling Miners Welfare, Gedling Town, Carlton Town and Dunkirk.

The Eagle Valley complex was completed in 2009, with the first match played on 24 January against Thackley resulting in a 3–2 win for Arnold in front of a crowd of 238.[6]
