Welcome to Hatton Sports and T.L. Darby FC.
Hatton Sports F.C. (junior teams) together with T.L. Darby F.C. (senior teams) are part of Hatton Sports and Social Club, based at Scropton Lane Sports Ground in Hatton.
T.L. Darby F.C. was formed in 1973 and is we believe, the oldest formed club playing regular football in both senior and junior leagues.
Starting at Hillfield Park in Stretton, in the early years the club played on various grounds around Burton including Shobnall Fields, Stapenhill Gardens and even Swadlincote Ski Slope (not literally!).
The club moved to its present headquarters in Hatton in 1987 and now the social club on the Scropton Road playing fields is used as its Headquarters and is central to all the activities involving the fund raising and social side of the club. The local parish council provide the pitches free of charge for the junior teams, appreciating the great effort the club goes to giving local youngsters the opportunity to play sport in a safe and organised environment.
Hatton Sports and T.L. Darby, together with groups such as 'Youth of Hatton' are working with Hatton Sports and Social Club in order to actively pursue ambitious plans in order to improve the facilities at Scropton Road Sports Field for the benefit of all.:
"To provide a safe and fun multi-sport facility to serve all people in the Hatton Parish, which encourages participation, self-development and community spirit"
