Lovells Athletic FC

Lovells Athletic F.C.

Lovells Athletic F.C. was the works team for Lovell's sweet factory in Newport, Wales.

Lovells joined the Western Football League in 1923 and won the title twice, including their inaugural season. During World War II, Newport County did not field a team, so Lovell's were the premier team in Newport for that period. In the 1945-46 season, they reached the 3rd round of the FA Cup, losing in a two-legged match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

In their 43-year existence they were Welsh League champions six times, Southern League champions and Welsh Cup winners.
