The Stags

A. F. C. Totton, nicknamed “The Stags,” is a non-league football club based in Totton, Hampshire.

Established in 1886, they currently compete in the Pitching In Southern Football League Premier South, which is part of the seventh tier of English football. The team calls Testwood Stadium their home ground.

Formed in 1974/75 through the merger of Totton FC and Totton Athletic, the club began in the Hampshire League Division Two and were promoted to Division One in 1979/80 after finishing second. The early 1980s were a golden era for the club under Trevor Parker’s management, culminating in a remarkable 1981/82 season where they won six different trophies, including the Hampshire League Division One title and the Southampton Senior Cup. This success was followed by another league title in 1984/85 and a Wessex League Cup victory in 1989/90.

The 2000s saw renewed success for AFC Totton, with Wessex League Cup wins in 2002/03 and 2005/06. Under Stuart Ritchie’s management, the team reached the FA Vase final at Wembley in 2006/07, narrowly losing to Truro City, and finished as runners-up in the Wessex Premier League. They won the Wessex Premier League in 2007/08, earning promotion to the Southern League. Further accomplishments included winning the Hampshire Senior Cup in 2009/10 and 2010/11, with the latter season also featuring a memorable run to the FA Cup 2nd Round Proper.

In recent years, AFC Totton has continued to thrive. They won the Southampton Senior Cup in 2021/22, and in 2022/23, under Jimmy Ball’s management, they were crowned Southern League Division One South champions, securing promotion to the Southern League Premier Division South. They also triumphed in the Southern League Division One Champion of Champions match and retained the SDFA Southampton Saturday Senior Cup, completing a remarkable treble.
