History:

Formed in 1885 and the full name of the Club, East Cowes Victoria Athletic Football Club is the longest registered with the Football Association. The Victoria part of the name derives from the ground being part of the Crown Estate and in the area of Osbourne House, thehome of Queen Victoria. Founder members of the Isle of Wight FA, joined the Hampshire League in 1947 and progressed through the Divisions before joining the Wessex League. Were relegated in 2000 but rejoined in 2004 and have remained in membership to this day. Have won the Isle of Wight Gold Cup on eight occasions with seven of those victories coming between 1980 and 1989. Their neat Stadium has been much improved over recent years and has staged Island Games fixtures and the surface is one of the best, recognised by Groundsman Mick Newnham winning an FA Award in 2012.
