ABOUT US

Newquay Association Football Club is a football club based in Newquay, Cornwall, England. Nicknamed “The Peppermints”, who are currently members of the South West Peninsula League Premier Division West and play at Mount Wise Stadium. 

The club was established in 1890 as Newquay Football Club, but did not play any competitive games until entering the Cornwall Senior Cup in 1896–97. They were renamed Newquay One and All in 1903 and went on to win the Cornwall Charity Shield in 1906–07.   After folding in 1912, the club was re-established as Newquay Rovers in 1920. The new club joined the Plymouth & District League but left in 1927 due to the cost of travelling.  In 1931 they were founder members of the Cornwall Senior League, going on to win the league and the Cornwall Senior Cup in 1934–35. However, the club disbanded in 1937.

The current incarnation of the club was formed in 1946, re-joining the Cornwall Senior League. In 1951 they were founder members of the South Western League. They won the Cornwall Senior Cup in 1952–53, 1954–55 and 1956–57, before finishing as runners-up in the South Western League in 1957–58. They were league champions the following season and retained the title in 1959–60. The club won the league again in 1977–78, 1979–80, 1981–82 and 1983–84, before finishing as runners-up in 1984–85. They were South Western League champions for a seventh time in 1987–88 and finished as runners-up in 1991–92,as well as winning the Cornwall Senior Cup. They finished second in the league again in 1993–94.

In 2007 the South Western League merged with the Devon County League to form the South West Peninsula League, with Newquay placed in Division One West. They were runners-up in the division in 2008–09 and then champions in 2011–12, earning promotion to the Premier Division. Following league reorganisation at the end of the 2018–19 season, the club were placed in the Premier Division West.

Most recently, following a period of decline, a brand-new committee of volunteers have helped breathe life into the club alongside generous support from the community, although recent hard times brought on by Covid-19.  We have been affected, like everyone else recently, by the Covid-19 pandemic, reducing ticket sales and other sources of revenue coming into the club. Despite this, Newquay AFC is pressing forward, moving towards an exciting phase in its history with the re-development of its facilities.

Through the positive promotion of football and community engagement, we are committed to providing opportunities for football participation and development for all people in a safe, supportive, respectful, and positive environment regardless of age, religion, race, and ability. 

Our exciting new developments will provide the local community access which will not only secure the future of the football club but give us the financial ability and income streams to compete in the higher echelons of the Football League.

All this will further help towards achieving our goal, through our collaboration with Newquay AFC Youth, we work together to give all young players the opportunity to play and progress in a safe, fun, and sociable environment. Providing a positive football experience for all. Newquay AFC Youth has a growing reputation for not only producing talented footballers but more importantly, well-rounded young boys and girls of which a growing number join our first and reserve teams.

Through the positive promotion of football and community engagement, we are committed to providing opportunities for football participation and development for all people. In a safe, supportive, respectful, and positive environment regardless of age, religion, race, ability. Becoming THE hub for players, supporters and extended family and friends alike.
