Our History

Barton Rovers Boys Football Club was formed in 1982 by Tony Cook, John Quinn and John Summerfield who lived in Tilehurst, Reading (United Kingdom) with sons who wished to play football.Due to the lack of local opportunity, a team was formed and named Barton Rovers, as two of the three parents lived in Barton Road. An original and current aim is to provide local football to youths who may not otherwise have the opportunity.
