Fleetwood Town Odds

Fleetwood Town odds are amongst the most popular in League One. Playing in such a difficult league to predict, where one side can one season be challenging for promotion and the next be fighting against relegation, odds on Fleetwood Town to be promoted are just as common as Fleetwood Town relegation odds.

When Fleetwood Town take part in big matches, whether that be a promotion clash, a relegation six pointer or a local derby, many bookmakers offer odds that are enhanced or part of a money back special promotion. For example, a bookmaker such as Paddy Power may enhance the odds on Fleetwood Town to win. 

As well as odds available on pre match or inplay markets, bookmakers also offer odds on what happens behind the scenes. Fleetwood Town manager odds or Fleetwood Town transfer odds are widely available, and can provide extra opportunities to make profit when betting on football.

History

Fleetwood Town are a professional football club located in Fleetwood, a town in Lancashire. This Fleetwood Town were formed in 1997, following the disbandment of Fleetwood FC and Fleetwood Town FC. Fleetwood Town are currently playing in the highest league in their history, the English third tier, League One.

The history of Fleetwood Town begins in 1997, however this incarnation is the third for a club that folded twice. Fleetwood FC were founded in 1908 and two years later the club joined the Lancashire Combination League. Starting off in the Lancashire Combination Second Division, the club were soon promoted in the 1911/1912 campaign. The club went on to spend nearly sixty years in this division, apart from a short time in the 1920’s when they resigned from the league, rejoining in the 1931/1932 season.

The 1930’s became a successful time for Fleetwood FC, with the club winning the Lancashire Combination Cup for three consecutive years from 1932 to 1934.  

In 1968, Fleetwood FC became one of the founding members of the Northern Premier League. While the club began well in their new division, the early 1970’s were a disastrous time for the club. After finishing bottom of the division three times in four seasons, the club disbanded in 1976 due to serious financial difficulties.

A year later, Fleetwood Town FC were formed. Many of the players and personnel associated with Fleetwood FC were also part of this new club in Fleetwood, and the club joined the Cheshire County League First Division.

Following four mid table finishes, the Cheshire County League merged with the Lancashire Combination League, thus forming the North West Counties division. In the 1983/1984 season, Fleetwood Town won the North West Counties League Second Division, and were promoted to the First Division.

For the 1987/1988 season, the Northern Premier League was introduced. Fleetwood Town joined the First Division, and won it at the first attempt. This led them to promotion to the Northern Premier League Premier Division.

In 1993, the club changed its name to simply Fleetwood. The following season, the club suffered relegation back to the First Division after finishing bottom of the Premier Division.

In 1996, the club folded for a second time. A third club was formed a year later, called Fleetwood Wanderers, though the club name changed almost straight away after the signing of a sponsorship deal, and the club became Fleetwood Freeport FC.

Placed back in the North West Counties Football League, Fleetwood Freeport started the 1997/1998 season in the Second Division. Two seasons later, the club won the title, and with it promotion to the First Division.

In 2002, the club changed its name once again, becoming Fleetwood Town. The 2004/2005 campaign was the first of six promotions in twelve years for the club. Fleetwood Town won the North West Counties First Division, and gained promotion to the Northern Premier League First Division.

Fleetwood Town achieved back to back promotions, earning a place in the Northern Premier League Premier Division. 2006/2007 brought the club more silverware. After beating Matlock Town 1-0, the club picked up the Northern Premier League Challenge Cup. A season later, in the 2007/2008 campaign, the club won the Premier Division title, earning a place in the Conference North. During this campaign, Fleetwood Town set a new Northern Premier League attendance record, becoming the best supported side in the division.

Fleetwood Town spent two seasons in this division, before a playoff win in the 2009/2010 saw the club join the Conference Premier Division. Fleetwood Town almost earned another back to back promotion, but were defeated in the playoff semi final. Fleetwood Town then became a fully professional club, with all players signing professional contracts.

 A season later and the club won the Conference Premier Division title, with Jamie Vardy the Fleetwood Town leading goalscorer that season.

Fleetwood Town were members of the Football League League Two for the 2012/2013 season, the first time in any incarnation of the football club that they had become full members of the Football League. 

Fleetwood Town performed well in their first ever Football League season, finishing in a respectable 13th place. A season later, Fleetwood Town reached the League Two playoffs. After defeating York City in the semi finals, the club faced Burton Albion in the final at Wembley. Antoni Sarcevic scored the only goal of the game, earning Fleetwood Town promotion to League One. 

The 2014/2015 season was the first ever spent in the third tier of English football in Fleetwood Town history. A tenth place finish in their first League One campaign was followed by a close call with relegation. Fleetwood Town ultimately survived, though, and started the 2016/2017 season in League One.

The following season was in complete contrast to the one before. Instead of struggling, Fleetwood thrived and reached the playoffs. However, they narrowly lost out to Bradford City. The 2017/2018 season saw the club finishing mid-table.

Crest

The current Fleetwood Town football crest features the clubs initials FTCD coloured in black and white placed inside a red circle badge.

Contained within the badge is the image of an anchor, with a rope wrapped around it, representing the town of Fleetwood’s seas and fishing industries.

Colours

The Fleetwood Town colours are traditionally red and white, though black shorts have been worn for much of Fleetwood Town kit history.

When Fleetwood Town were reformed for the third time, as Fleetwood Freeport, their kit consisted of red and white striped shirts worn with black shorts and red socks. Between 1998 and 2000, the club players wore white shirts with interrupted red stripes, worn again with black shorts and red socks.

From 2000 to 2002, the shorts and socks remained black and red respectively, with the shirts red with red and black zig zag designs featuring on the white sleeves.

In 2002, when the called was renamed as Fleetwood Town, the Fleetwood Town players wore a red shirt with a black trim, worn with black shorts and red socks. In 2004, this kit was altered slightly. Still featuring a red shirt with a black trim, the shorts featured a white trim with the red socks featuring a white hoop.

2006 was the first introduction of the Fleetwood Town kit colours of red and white. The shirt was red with a white trim, worn with white shorts with a red trim, and white socks.

In 2007, white sleeves were introduced. Still wearing a red jersey, the Fleetwood Town players wore this shirt with white shorts and white socks with a red trim. The kit remained similar from 2009 to 2013, though the socks colour was changed from white to red.

In 2013, the Fleetwood Town shirt was changed slightly. Still mostly red with white sleeves, the top of the shirt featured a diagonal band of white. This Fleetwood Town shirt design changed for the 2015/2016 season.

The 2018/2019 season sees the Fleetwood Town players wear red shirts with white sleeves, white shorts with a red trim and red socks.

Fleetwood Town Stadium

When the original Fleetwood Town club were formed, the club played their home games on a pitch beside the North Euston Hotel. The club remained here until 1934, except for two seasons in the late 1910’s when the club played at The Queen’s Ground.

The current Fleetwood Town stadium is Highbury Stadium. The club moved into this ground in 1939, and since 2007 Highbury Stadium has undergone a series of renovations, resulting in a Fleetwood Town stadium capacity of 5,194, currently the smallest in League One.

Following the years of stadium renovations, the Fleetwood Town stadium layout features four main stands. These are the Parkside Stand, the Highbury Stand, the Percy Ronson Terrace, named after one of the club’s most famous players, and the Memorial Stand, so called in memory of the trawlermen and servicemen who have lost their lives working at the Fleetwood port.

Supporters

The majority of Fleetwood Town supporters, known as the Cod Army supporters, hail from Fleetwood and surrounding areas of Lancashire. 

Fleetwood Town supporters have enjoyed rivalries with local sides Morecambe, Barrow and Southport. These rivalries grew during the time all four clubs met each other regularly while playing non-league football.

Skelmersdale United, Chorley, Kendal Town and Lancaster City have also been non-league rivals, with the Fleetwood Town supporters rivalry with Accrington Stanley growing since their non-league days to the present day while they are both now members of the Football League.

The club’s neighbours on the Fylde Coast, Blackpool, are one of Fleetwood Town supporters major rivals, despite only meeting each other four times in their history. However, this rivalry is sure to grow further with both sides now playing League Football.

Ownership

The current Fleetwood Town owner is Andrew Pilley. Pilley is also the chairman of the club.

Andrew Pilley first got involved with Fleetwood Town in 2004. Pilley has invested over £10 million pound into Fleetwood Town Football Club, including completely renovating Highbury Stadium.

Andrew Pilley is also owner of BES Utilities, and this company uses the offices within the Highbury Stadium.

Stats

The list of Fleetwood Town stats begins with their leading ever appearance maker. That honour goes to Nathan Pond, who has made to date 429 appearances for Fleetwood Town from 2003 to the present day. Pond also holds the world record for playing in the most divisions with the same football club.

Jack Ainscough and Percy Ronson also made over 400 appearances for Fleetwood Town. Ainscough made 421 appearances for the club between 1954 and 1966, and Ronson played in 416 matches from 1949 to 1964.

Fleetwood Town’s record victory (since their third formation in 1997) came in 1998. The club beat Oldham Town 13-0 in the North West Counties League Second Division.

The club’s record defeat came in 2001. Fleetwood Town were beaten 7-0 by Billingham Town in the FA Cup first qualifying round.
