Intermediates History

Radcliffe Olympic FC was founded in 1876, making it one of the oldest football Clubs in the local area, a forerunner for other Clubs. During the early period the standard of players at the Club was extremely high. One player who was to go on to play international football was Harry Butler Daft who played for the Club in the early 1890's.

Although long term history is hard to find when looking for Club honours Olympic enjoyed early success as a Club. In the 1900/01 season Olympic were the Notts Alliance Champions.

The next period that we found Olympic success was the early 1930s. In the 1929/30 season the Club won the Notts Alliance Divisional 2 Cup. The 1931/32 season saw the Club win both the Notts Alliance Division Town and the South Notts League.

The 1940s brought more silverware when in 1946/47 Olympic won both the Notts Realm League Division One and the Notts Realm League Division One Cup. In the 1947/48 season the Notts Realm League Division One Cup was retained.

Olympic next had success in the mid to late 1960s. In a six year period between the 1965/66 and 1970/71 seasons Olympic won three Midlands Amateur Alliance League titles, the Central Alliance Premier Division, the East Midlands Regional League Division One and the Midlands Amateur Alliance Senior Cup in the 1967/88 season.

Throughout the 1990s Radcliffe Olympic hit a purple patch winning the Notts Alliance Division One in 1990/91 and the Nottm & District Spartan League Division One in 1991/92. As well as these two league Championships Olympic had Cup success winning the Nottm & District Spartan League Cup in 1990/91, the Midland Amateur Alliance Intermediate Cup 1996/97 and were runners up in the Notts FA Intermediate Cup in 1992/93 and in the Notts Alliance Intermediate Cup in 1996/97.

As the Club entered its third century the success continued. In the 2001/02 season they won the Notts Alliance Division Three Championship and the Notts Intermediate Cup. In 2002/03 the First Team won the Notts Alliance Senior Division and the Notts Alliance Senior Cup.

In the close season Radcliffe Olympic amalgamated with local Club AFC Dayncourt to create one of the biggest Clubs in Nottinghamshire with it retaining the famous Radcliffe Olympic name. The success continued in the 2003/04 season when the First Team were crowned Champions of the Central Midland League Premier Division. This was mirrored by the Reserve Team who won the Central Midlands League Reserve Division One.

The 2004/05 season saw the Seniors play at its highest standard of football in its long history. The First Team played in the Central Midlands League Supreme Division. They finished a respectable eleventh.

The club is made up of Junior, Intermediate, Senior and Ladies sections providing football opportunities for over 500 Men, Ladies and Children.
