Club History

March Town United FC

MARCH was home to two football clubs prior to the Second World War – March Town, established in 1886, and March GER United, formed in 1911.

After the war, however, March GER United did not reform and March Town – which played at Estover Road, Gaul Drove, Burrowmoor and The Avenue Ground prior to the outbreak of conflict – took over the GER Sports Ground.

In 1950, March Town added United to their title. The club, nicknamed the Hares, joined the Eastern Counties League in 1954, finishing third in their first season and runners-up in their second. During their second season they also reached the first round of the FA cup for the first time, losing 4-0 at established Football League side Brentford. March also reached the FA Cup first round in 1978-79, losing 2-0 at Swindon Town.

March have only won the Eastern Counties League once in their history, in 1987-88. They played their title decider in front of 2,000 fans at local rivals Chatteris Town. In 1996-97, they finished bottom of the Premier Division and were relegated to Division One where they have remained since.

The GER ground also staged greyhound racing, cycling and cricket until 1960. Because of this, the ground’s main stand is some distance from the edge of the pitch.
