History:
Daventry Town FC was founded in 1886 and from those early days up until the sixties the team was staffed by local lads from the then very small town. Daventry played in the Northampton Town League alternating between the 1st and 2nd Divisions with a Northants Junior Cup success in 1930 a rare highlight.

In the sixties Town played second fiddle to UCL outfit British Timken Athletic and later they slipped behind Ford Sports in the pecking order. A move to the Northanrs Combination in 1987 started Town's rise to pre eminence under the management of Willie Barrett. The ex-Timken Athletic boss steered his side to successive wins in the Combination First and Premier divisions and by 1989 Town were ready for a whole new adventure in the UCL.
Playing at the Hollow ground in the town centre Daventry carried off the UCL Division One title at the first attempt and were Northants Junior Cup runners up but were denied promotion because their new Elderstubbs ground was not yet up to Premier standards.
Twelve months later a runaway title success was rewarded with promotion and for good measure the Junior Cup was won against Bugbrooke. After a season of consolidation in the top flight, Town finished fifth in the Premier and were Knockout Cup runners up against Rothwell.
Manager Barrett was headhunted by Racing Warwick and the club hit the slippery slope thereafter, taking voluntary relegation to Division One for financial reasons.
After narrowly missing out on promotion in the millenium season, Craig Robson's side made no mistake in 2000-01 pipping Deeping to the Division One title on goal difference. The club's roller coaster fortunes continued back in the top flight and in 2004 they finished at the foot of the table. A repeat twelve months later saw Daventry return to Division One.

The club's survival came under threat in the 2005-06 season when a fire destroyed the Elderstubbs clubhouse and changing rooms, but a sponsorship deal with mobile phone company Go Mobile enabled the club to continue.
