Wivenhoe Town FC, or the Dragons as we are known in local footballing circles have been entertaining the town of Wivenhoe for almost 80 years. The club was originally formed in 1925 as Wivenhoe Rangers by Frank Slaughter.
Runners-Up in 1931/32, they gained their first honours the following season by winning the League Championship after going the entire campaign undefeated. Rangers remained a force in local Junior football throughout the thirties with their most successful season being the 1936/37 campaign. Another successful period was enjoyed by the club during the early fifties and in 1952/53 they won five trophies in the shape of the Colchester & East Essex League Premier Division Championship, the League Challenge Cup, The Stopes Cup, the Wivenhoe Charity Cup and the Amos Charity Cup.
1977/78 was an important campaign for the Club as they purchased a carrot field on the outskirts of the village for £2,500 and, with the aid of grants, built a clubhouse and dressing rooms on the site. The next season Wivenhoe won the Essex & Suffolk Border League Premier Division Championship and was granted senior status, which enabled them to join the Essex Senior League.
The club has been growing ever since!
