The history of Afan Lido football club, Port Talbot South Wales
Lido football club owes its creation to man named Phil Robinson.
Robinson was the Director of Football at the Afan Lido Sports
Centre. It was his realisation that the Centre needed an official
football team to unite the organisation and help give it purpose
that led to the foundation of the Afan Lido Club in 1967. The team
plays their home games at the Martson Stadium in Aberavon which is
capable of holding up to 4200 spectators.

More restructuring occurred
over the next few years resulting in the formation of the League of
Wales in 1992. The Afan Lido Football Club became one of the
founding members of the League in 1992 and succeeded in winning the
League Cup in both the 1992/93 and 1993/94 seasons. In the 1994/95
season, the team placed second in the League of Wales earning them a
place in the UEFA Cup. However, the team failed to capitalise on
this success and lost the Cup to RAF Riga of Latvia. For the second
time since it began, the Afan Lido Football Club was relegated from
the League. After both the League undergoing managerial changes and
the team working their way back up in the rankings, Afan Lido was
readmitted into the League of Wales at the end of the 1994/95
