Tadley Calleva Football Club are a football club based in Tadley, Hampshire, England. The club is affiliated to the Hampshire Football Association.[1] The club's name of Calleva comes from the nearby Roman Town of Calleva Atrebatum, based just outside Silchester.[2] They play in the Wessex League Division One.


The club was formed as Tadley F.C. in 1989.[3] They joined the Hampshire League Division Three in 1994, finishing runners-up in 1995–96, gaining promotion to Division Two.[4] The club changed its name to Tadley Town F.C. in 1999 and joined Division One upon reorganisation.[5] In 2004, they changed their name to their present name and entered the Wessex Football League Division Three.[6] Division Three was renamed Division Two in 2006, and the club finished runners-up in 2007.[7] In the 2007–08, they won the Wessex League Division One title but were denied promotion as their ground did not meet the requirements for the Premier Division.[8] Since then the team has remained in Division One.

In the 2010–11 Campaign they reached the final of the Basingstoke Senior Cup losing to Thatcham Town F.C. 4–1. In September 2014, the club recorded the best result of its modern history, defeating Basingstoke Town F.C. on penalties in the Hampshire FA Senior Cup at the Soccer AM Stadium (formerly 'The Camrose') after a 2-2 draw in 90 minutes. Brett Denham and Andrew Charsley scored the goals.[9]


Tadley Calleva play their home games at Barlows Park, Silchester Road, Tadley, Hampshire, RG26 3PX.

Barlows Park was built on an old landfill site and was opened in 2007.[2] The ground has pitch fencing, hard standing and flood lights.[10] It is managed by the Barlow's Park Management Association and is also home to Reading F.C. Women.[10]
