* Division re-named

Date – Saturday 12th September 1981

The above date was when Old Dunstablians (now AFC Dunstable) took to the field to play the clubs first ever game.

The club was formed by teachers of Manshead School Dave Neasham & Neil Smith along with ex pupil Gary Potter.

The team was made up of a mixture of teachers, current & ex pupils

Playing in the Dunstable Alliance Football League Division One, the first game was against Leedon with the game finishing in an entertaining 3-3 draw.

So here is the squad for that first game, in no particular playing order.

Mark Barrett. Chris Bolton. Andy Fowler. Steve Georgio. Anthony Homeden. John Mullen. Brian Rigby. Glenn Rudd. Neil Smith. Jonathan Smitt. Darren Snee. Mark Walker.

Other players who played that season are Paul Marlow, Lee Blinco, Mick Robinson, Andy Downie & Warren Tomlinson. Even though Dave Neasham and Gary Potter missed the first game, they played every other game that season. Paul Marlow ended up top scorer with 22 goals.

The team finished 3rd in the table with The Pheasant winning the league & Edlesborough runners up.

Now after all these years, the club have massive gratitude to Dave, Neil & Gary for forming the club in 1981 and without them, thousands of players would not have had the opportunity to represent our great club.
