Pill A.F.C was formed in 1982 with two senior sides. Although most of the players played for the Y.M.C.A on Saturdays, it was their association with the Mariners F.C and latterly Pill Sporting F.C - who played on a Sunday- from which Pill A.F.C was formed.
We played in the Premier and 1st Division of the Npt & Dist Saturday League.Founder Members were : Alex Beattie, Steven Murrey, Leo Powell, Mark Jenkins, John Payne, Ray Pulis, Andrew Cueto, John Crowley, Ian Archer, John Challingsworth , Steven Rowberry, Alan Williams, Peter Hale , Tony Cueto, and Richie Willis.
We won the League and Cup double in our 1st season.Our ambition was to achieve Gwent County status .It took us five years to achieve that, gaining promotion to the 3rd division of the Gwent County League in 1987, winning that league at the 1st attempt. The following season we won the 2nd Division.
It then took us till 1996 to win the 1st division
We have won more than 34 League and Cup trophies and have added a 3rd senior side.
The 2003/04 season seen us drop out of the Gwent County League .A lot of the senior players who got us into this league were coming to the end of their playing days so we decided to start again with the many youth players that were coming through.
This strategy seems to have worked because this season(2009) Pill AFC have once again gained promotion to the Gwent County League .
After two years in the 3rd Div Gwent County the 1st team gained promotion to the 2nd division , going up as champions 2010/11.
Season 2011/12 our thirtieth year proved to be our most successful yet with the 1st Team winning the 2nd Div Gwent County unbeaten and coming runners up in the Amatuer Cup. The 2nd team won the Npt & Dist Prem Y and the 3rd team won the Npt & Dist 3rd Div also coming runners up in the Junior Cup.
Season 2012/13 saw the 1st Team runners up in the Gwent County 1st Div , a fine achievment in their 1st year back.
The 2nd Team also came runners up in the Prem Y.
The 3rds won the 1st Div and we added a 4th team this year run by Norman Parselle and Kevin Roche
