Formed in 1892, we are proud to be a three-star FA Accredited Club and run more than 30 teams, providing football for hundreds and men, women, boys and girls throughout the season.
Initially, the club played in leagues based around Taunton and Tiverton. In the early 1960s, we gained promotion to the Somerset Senior League and succeeded in achieving Western League status in 1978 which has been retained ever since, making us one of the league’s longest continuously serving members.
Since entering entered the Western League in the First Division, we have played at Premier Division level from 1981-82 to 1984-85 and 2008-09 to 2010-11.
The team were then promoted as First Division champions at the end of the 2016-17 season and have since remained in the Premier Division.
In their first season back in the Premier Division, the team finished a creditable 15th and also reached the semi-finals of the Somerset Premier Cup.
The side, who ended up 15th in 2022-23, are now managed by Richard Cherry, assisted by long-serving defender Jack Bown-Porter.
We have four other senior sides – the Reserves in the Devon and Exeter League’s Division One, the A team in the Taunton Saturday League’s Division One and the Wildcats Ladies and Wellington Ladies in the Somerset County Women’s League.
We run 23 teams in our youth and minis with both boys and girls playing from the age of eight right through to 18 – along with coaching for even younger children.
We also have a thriving Disability section with two adult sides and a youth team.
Off the pitch, Wellington AFC play a major role in the local community – we are home to a large number of skittles and darts teams and our social facilities are in use throughout the year for a wide range of events staged by local organisations, registered charities and individuals.
