Huthwaite FC started off without a win in 1980, remaining anchored to the bottom of the Sutton and Skegby League. But over the next seven years they became the talk of Nottinghamshire by storming to the forefront among the local leagues. By 1987 the football club had collected 11 trophies, adding an astounding treble win to claim the Central Midlands League Premier Division, Premier Division Cup plus Notts Senior Cup.

The team shown above by Kev Murfin, stands weathering a cold day upon their home ground. Unfortunately this old pitch was deemed unsuitable for stepping up the club into the Supreme Division. Proposals to next share the Alfreton Town ground never materialised, resulting in the Trev Wass side ultimately being folded.

The Huthwaite Football Club reunited for a charity match organised by Ernie Moss to challenge his Allstars XI. This special event dated 20th July raised funds towards a Special Baby Care Unit at Kings Mill Hospital.
