Our History

Bishops Cannings Football Club was founded by Kevin Halpin, Neil and Shelly Lawes in 2004. Initially we had just enough players to form one U10 team.

We started out playing on the football field at Bishops Cannings school. Within a short time our numbers started to grow and we were able to register two teams with the Mid Wilts FA.

For a short while, we moved to a field adjacent to the New Inn at Coate until we outgrew it and moved to Green Lane in Devizes.

As each year goes by, the club as grown to be able to support 13 teams across 9 age groups, starting from as young as under 5's.

Kevin Halpin has recently stood down as Chairman. Mikey Harford, his successor, hopes to continue the growth as we move forward with future development plans. The club wouldn't be where it is today and have such wonderful prospects without the hard work of it's dedicated volunteers.
