CLUB HISTORY

Ramsey Town FC was formed in 1880 and 29 years later in 1909 they lifted their first major honour when they won the Huntingdonshire Junior Cup and followed that twelve months later by winning the Huntingdonshire Senior Cup. The only highlight of the inter-war years was a Hinchingbrooke Cup success in 1931. After the war they picked up the Scott Gatty Cup in 1948 but the club was 80 years old when it won its first league title - the Peterborough League Division One title in 1960. Although they competed regularly in the Premier Division of the Peterborough League significant success eluded them but they were building a reputation of being a successful Cup side picking up the Peterborough Senior Cup on four occasions between 1969 and 1982.

In 1985 the Rams took the biggest step in their history as they successfully applied to join the United Counties League. Ground availability due to the share with cricket was always a hindrance but finished a very creditable 4th in their first season and bettered that by claiming third place in their second season. In 1988/89 they lifted the Division One title but were denied promotion because of facilities and they remained in the UCL for a total of eleven seasons before withdrawing at their own request. In 1985/86 they won the Huntingdonshire Senior Cup for the first time in 76 years and also maintained their Cup fighting reputation by becoming the first UCL Division One Club to contest the Premier Division/Division One KO Cup losing to Northampton Spencer. Their last apperance in a County Cup Final was in 1992 when they finished runners-up to Eynesbury Rovers. Recent seasons have seen them climbing back up the pyramid in the Peterborough League and in the 2008/9 season they lifted the Peterborough Premier Division championship for the first time as well as finishing runners-up to Eynesbury Rovers in the Huntingdonshire Premier Cup final.
