Morriston Town Football Club - History

Morriston Town AFC started life in the 1940’s as Midland Athletic playing in the local Swansea Area League. In 1950 the club was successful in it’s application to join the Welsh Football League. Through fund-raising efforts the ground was purchased from a local farmer and named “The Dingle Field”.

The club has had continuous membership of the Welsh Football league since 1950. A memorable match at the Dingle attracted a capacity crowd in excess of 2000 for a league game  in 1962 to witness Roy Paul’s final game as a player when Morriston Town played Garw Athletic.

The club has had a chequered history where it has seen some good times and some bad times. The present committee and football management have done extremely well to keep the club afloat when back in 2001 it looked likely the club would disappear from the Welsh League.

Since then there has been a marked improvement on and off the field, we now have thirteen junior football teams as well as our First and Reserve Teams and the future is looking a lot rosier.
