Downham Town F.C. are a community football club with teams from Under 7's through to men and women senior teams.
The club plays at two different grounds, Rouses Lane for Juniors and the Memorial Ground for Under 14's and above.
Last year the club raised over £900 for charity, split evenly with Help For Heroes and Norfolk Air Ambulance.
The club was established in 1881, and were originally nicknamed the Saints.
They initially played in junior leagues in the Kings Lynn area, before joining the Peterborough and District League.
In 1949 the club gained senior status after being elected to the league's Premier Division.
In 1962 they won the Peterborough Senior Cup, which they retained the following year, also winning the league title.
In 1964 they won the Norfolk Senior Cup and again two years later in 1966. Further victories in the Peterborough Senior Cup came in 1967, 1972 and 1987, whilst the league was won in 1973-74, 1978-79, 1986-87 and 1987-88. Following back-to-back titles in 1987 and 1988, the club were founding members of the new Division One of the Eastern Counties League in 1988, where they have remained since.
Their best league performance was third place in 1998-99.
In 2009 the adult teams amalgamated with the youth teams.
