HISTORY

Holyhead Hotspur was formed in 1990, initially playing in the Anglesey League. A group of local football lads who were playing for another local team decided to start their own team with the help of Ken Chambers and Gary Williams. To choose a team name, they each put their suggestion in a hat and the name HOTSPUR was drawn out, so Holyhead Hotspur was born.

In 1996, following the success of Holyhead Hotspur in the Anglesey League and Gwynedd League, the club amalgamated with the other four clubs representing Holyhead to form Holyhead Hotspur and Holyhead Hotspur Reserves.

Holyhead Hotspur were promoted to the Cymru Alliance league for the 1998–99 season after winning the Welsh Alliance League in the 1997–98 season. At the same time, Holyhead Hotspur Reserves also saw promotion to the Gwynedd League.

In summer 1997, local junior football club Holyhead Peibio Youth amalgamated with Holyhead Hotspur and formed the club's junior branch. Now known as Holyhead Hotspur Peibio Youth, the juniors are represented at Under 7, Under 9, Under 11, Under 12, Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18 age groups. Holyhead Hotspur Peibio Youth was the first organisation in the whole of Wales to receive the Welsh Football Trust's Fun Football Accreditation, allowing the Club to host regular soccer school activities as well as football in the community programme, involving a newly formed ladies team (Cybi Ladies) and a learning difficulties team (Clwb Cybi). In 2009 they were one of only four clubs on Anglesey to be awarded silver accreditation by McDonald's and the Football Association of Wales. Silver accreditation was retained for the 2010–11 season.

In summer 2011, girls' teams were reintroduced into the club. Teams at under 10 and under 12 were affiliated to the North Wales Girls League.

In 2018, Darren Garmey and Nick Dumbarton became Manager and Assistant Manager, and Ben Williams became chairman. The reserve side was taken over by Mike Kelly, Tom Scott, Martyn Mcclymont and John Jones, playing in the Anglesey league. In the 2018-19 season, Holyhead Hotspur were relegated from the Cymru Alliance to the Welsh Alliance League after being in the Cymru Alliance for six years
