Formed over 100 years and nicknamed "The Badgers", Govilon AFC V Playing Fields , known locally as "The Rec" after playing their football at Bailey Park, Abergavenny whilst their pitch, which had a pronounced slope was re-developed. Their spell at Abergavenny saw them win the Knauf Insulation Gwent Central League and on returning home they gained admittance to the Welsh Auto parts Gwent County League in 2007/2008 winning Div 3 in their inaugural season and also winning the John Payne Barber Gwent County FA Amateur Cup. Season 2008/2009 saw them win Division 2 also picking up the County Motors Challenge Cup. Main Club sponsors are Trade Centre Wales.
The Trade centre Wales started to sponsor Govilon when we where playing local league football providing tracksuits, kits, training tops and polo shirts for both our sides. Since the start of there sponsorship we have gained the titles as stated above and presently play our football in the Gwent County Div1 it is our ambition to progress to the Welsh League.
We hope to have 2 players in the squad which will represent Wales in Croatia at the end of September.
