Welcome..

Brache Sparta Community F.C. are a football club based in Luton, formed in 1960,

Brache Sparta Community F.C. takes its name from an area of Luton & the Czech side in vogue at the time they were formed.

Early History

Brache Sparta initially played in the Luton & District League at Stockwood Park, however in 1973, Brache, with help from the council, acquired Foxdell Recreation Ground and built a Clubhouse with an adjacent pitch.

This meant that they could successfully apply for admittance into the South Midlands League for the 1975/6 season.

After many struggles, promotion was eventually gained to the Premier League in 1985. However, this was met with the resignation of their Manager Barry Fancini and a mass exodus of players.

As a result, the club was relegated.

Though it wasn't long before Brache were back in the Premier League, regaining their place in 1988 under Barry O'Keefe.

The Club is now under new ownership and has big plans to give the club the new image it well deserves.
