Back in 1980, three men with footballing sons were unhappy with the way youth football was being organised in Iver village.
Alan Goodliff, Jim Gillard and Len Barber decided to form a new club and hopefully with the help of their wives and the parents of the players they could run a successful well managed team.
The first problem was the name. We wanted a name that applied to Iver without using the name of the village. Those of you familiar with the bar area in the Village Hall will know the two rooms off the car are called Coppins and Delaford.
During one of our many meetings in the bar to discuss the way forward for the club, Jim pointed to the name over the door, everyone liked it and that is how the club was named.
Help was given to the club in the form of £500 donated by Peter Litchfield, the then owner of Woodlands Bakery, other help was given by parents organisingfundraising events such as discos etc.
Twenty nine years later and Delaford Colts is still thriving and on behalf of the founder members may I wish the club and its committee all the very best for the future and here's to the next twenty nine years.
