After winning the 4th Division title in 2008/09, the Con Club started the 2009/10 season in the Third Division of the Michael R Peters Bedford & District Sunday Football League.


2007/08 Season

There was more change for the 2007/08 season as the Park moved to the Michael R Peters Bedford & District Sunday Football League.

The 07/08 season was also the most successful in the club's history to date, after a 6-1 win against Star Clapham sealed a third place finish in the league, and only a 1-0 defeat to Marston Reds prevented the Blue Army from playing in the D&V Millward Cup Final.

Highlights from the season include the 6-1 win against Star Clapham, a 3-2 victory at previously undefeated Sir William Peel Sandy in March and the D&V Millward Cup run, which heralded a total of 30 goals in 9-1, 8-1 and 13-0 wins against Wootton Park Rangers Reserves, Meppershall Jurassic and North End Astros respectively.

Gary Higgins was again top scorer, hitting an incredible 68 goals in just 21 games.

The Park finished the season with an 11 game unbeaten run in the league, including winning the last 10 games in succession.

In total RPU won 13 of 20 league games in the 2007/08 season, drew 3 and lost 4, scoring 94 goals in the process (the second highest in the entire league).

Eddie Haddow was named Player's Player of the Year, Gary Higgins picked up the award for Manager's Player and Top Goalscorer, Ben Norrish won the Most Improved Player Award, Richard Howlett was named Clubman and Chris Fountain picked up a special award for his services to linesmanship.

The club also announced that from the start of the 2008/09 season Russell Park United Football Club would be no more, as KEMPSTON CONSTITUTIONAL CLUB F.C. are born.

At the end of May it was confirmed that the club had been promoted to the Modplan Preservation Fourth Division from the start of the 2008/09 season.
