Welcome to Bridgwater Grasshoppers F.C.

 
Originally formed in the early eighties, this famous Bridgwater & District Sunday League club has undergone many transformations over the years, beginning with humble aspirations and, like a shooting star, shining brightly for a few brief seasons in the top flight during the late nineties before eventually fizzling out at the turn of the century.

However, thanks to a consortium of former players from the early nineties, the club was resurrected for the beginning of the 2004-05 season and wasted no time in restoring the club's original reputation for fair play and reasonably attractive football, played in a good spirit and with a sense of camaraderie - more in the style of a rugby club than bickering, prima donna footballers.

Following a successful first season the club quickly grew even further and, with the advent of the 2005-06 season, a second side was created. Following a ruling that both teams were to compete against each other in the same division of the Uxella League the decision was taken to run Grasshoppers '04 as a predominantly youth-oriented side that would lay the foundations for the future success of the club while Grasshoppers '05 would be firmly focused on the present, consisting of a strong squad of experienced Sunday League performers.

The 2006-07 season then brought another league rule change which saw the Hoppers have their rapidly maturing '04 youth team promoted to the First Division as the emphasis changed from two separate sides to the more traditional first and reserves arrangement. The two sides operated for a couple of years before the strains of raising two starting elevens on the same day told and the club downsized once again to one team operating in the second division of the Bridgwater Sunday League from season 2008-09.

Off the pitch the club continued to enjoy a healthy attendance at its weekly training sessions so a different plan was hatched to provide more playing opportunities. From season 2009-10 the club introduced a Saturday side which plays in Division 4 of the Taunton and District Saturday Football League.
