Introducing the 1st Team

The 1st Team played its first competitive match in September 2003 in the North Herts League at The Shed on Clothall Road, Baldock. The match was against Magnum with a Rob Foster hat-trick sealing a 5-1 win.

Since then the Club have progressed from the North Herts League to the Herts Senior County League. The 1st Team won Division One of the HSCL in their debut season in 2007/2008.

For three seasons from 2008/09, the team played its home matches on Saturday afternoons at The County Ground, Baldock Road in Letchworth, but they returned to Baldock for the 2011/12 season playing at Baldock Town FC's former home at Norton Road, which is now known as the North Herts Arena.

After three near misses, the 1st Team finally won the Herts Senior County League Premier Division title in 2011/12. Unfortunately due to ground grading issues, the team were unable to take their place in the Spartan South Midlands League.

For the 2012/13 season, the team began a groundshare with Hitchin Town FC. Despite finishing runners-up in the HSCL Premier Division the following season - it would still prove enough to secure that elusive promotion. Scott Grant's side also won the Herts Senior Centenary Trophy for the first time and retained the Anagram Records Trophy.

The next two seasons saw a period of consolidation for the 1st Team finishing 7th and 10th respectively in Spartan South Midlands League Division One, which is Step 6 on the Non-League Pyramid.

After Grant decided to step down Luke Gregson took the reigns for the 2015/16 season, assisted by Dean Gilbert. After an indifferent start, the team went on a superb run and ended up just missing out on promotion. The 3rd place finish was the club's highest in the Football Pyramid to date.

The team currently play its home games at Stotfold FC's Roker Park ground.
