History of Milborne St Andrew Football Club 

 

Milborne St Andrew Football Club was first formed in 1912 with their first league match being played in November of that year.  Milborne finished 2nd in the league in the 1912/13 season just 1 point behind local rivals Milton Abbas.

On New Years Eve a most enjoyable and successful dance was held in the schoolroom in Chapel Street in aid of the recently formed Football Club.  The room was nicely decorated by the organising committee.  Dancing commenced at 8 o’clock and was kept up until 4 am with all joining hands and singing Auld Lang Syne at midnight.  The proceeds amounted to £7.
