Godmanchester Rovers

Godmanchester Rovers F.C. is an English football club based in Godmanchester, Cambridgeshire. The club are currently members of the Premier Division of the Eastern Counties League and play at Bearscroft Lane.

The first recorded mention of the club is from the 1928–29 season, when they won the Hunts Junior Cup.They played in the Huntingdonshire League for many years before joining the Cambridgeshire League. They won the Hunts Junior Cup again in 1988–89, and in 1992 were promoted to the top division of the Cambridgeshire League. In 1994–95 they won the League Cup, retaining it for the next two seasons. However, they were relegated to the Senior Division in 2000.

With the club about to move into a new ground, they made a speculative application to join the Eastern Counties League in 2002. Despite being in the second tier of the Cambridgeshire League, the club were successful. They finished bottom of the division in 2004–05, but were not relegated as the league was understrength in terms of numbers. In 2011–12 the club won Division One on goal difference to earn promotion to the Premier Division, and also won the Division One Knock-out Cup, defeating Whitton United 1–0 in the final. In 2014–15 the club finished as runners-up in the Premier Division.
