Waterford Schoolboys Football League

Piltown Athletic Football Club

History:

Piltown A.F.C was first formed in 1947. The founder members were two brothers, Joseph and Edward Anthony and also Alex 'Jock' Trainer, an army sergeant native of Donegal. Piltown’s first match was a friendly against Portlaw. The game ended a draw and later Piltown were invited to enter a competition in Waterford called the Inter House league. Next season Piltown were invited to join the Waterford league, Division 2. Piltown never had one continuous team, instead it faded in and out of the club scene.

In 1970 a Piltown team called Tower Rovers was formed and for the first time in many years a Piltown team took part in the Waterford and District League. In 1977 a second Piltown team called Templeorum Utd was formed and entered the Kilkenny and District league. Meanwhile in 1978 Tower Rovers also entered the Kilkenny league. In 1983 Tower Rovers and Templeorum Utd joined and Iverk F.C. was born. In 1987 Iverk F.C. re-entered the Waterford league and changed its name to Piltown A.F.C. where it has remained until the present day.

In 1997 Piltown moved from our long-term rented home of the Showgrounds to our new grounds at Kildalton Park. In our first 6 years at our new grounds we have put in an extensive drainage system, resurfaced playing fields, built a clubhouse and dressing rooms, built an all-weather field, and are currently floodlighting an entire field.
