Grafton Celtics Football Club

About Us

The Grafton Celtics were founded in 2009 in the back bar at the Grafton Hotel which used to just be known for its "Good Beer, Good Food and Good Craic" but you can now add Great Football to that list as The Celts go marching up the Bedfordshire Sunday League!

For years people had tried and failed to form an Irish based football team in Bedford but in 2009 the Grafton Celtics entered the Bedford & District Sunday League Division 5.  Since then the Grafton Celtics have been promoted each year and reached a county cup semi final.  For a Sunday League team the attendance from our supporters is unrivalled and as 75% of the team all went to the same upper school, the team environment is one of a close family.
