1960´s

Coming Soon

The 60’s are proving to be an interesting era with many teams in Waltham Abbey having the title “Waltham Abbey” in their name.

Over the coming weeks I hope to unravel this enigma and finally piece together the string of amalgamations and legacies within the Town at this time.

I first thought I may have to rewrite the history books, but hopefully this is not so, the information I am finding will add to the already rich football history, I hope not only of our club but the footballing history of the Town as a whole.
