Wells City FC Can't Post or Reply Privately

Just moved to Wells and interested in hearing from anyone with advice about their history and ambitions. It's a small city (England's smallest in fact) but it would be nice to see another team from Somerset aspire to reach the heights of Yeovil.

I suspect that Western League is more or less the best that Wells City can realistically hope for, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.



Rules of Groundhopping:

Rule 1 - There are no rules
Rule 2 - See rule 1.....

I suspect you're probably correct Andy

I've been to Wells several times and it's a beautiful city but I can't see the club rising much above Western league either. Never seen them play though.

Filmed in Wells-
Preparation and filming. Simon Pegg filming in Wells, Somerset.
During the latter half of 2005, Working Title Films approached several towns in South West England looking for an appropriate filming location. Pegg commented, "We're both [Pegg and Wright] from the West Country so it just seemed like it was the perfect and logical thing to drag those kind of ideas and those genres and those clichés back to our beginnings to where we grew up, so you could see high-octane balls-to-the-wall action in Frome".[13] Stow-on-the-Wold was considered amongst others, but after being turned away, the company settled upon Wells in Somerset, Wright's hometown,[14] of which he has said "I love it but I also want to trash it".[15] Wells Cathedral was digitally painted out of every shot of the cathedral city, as Wright wanted the Church of St Cuthbert to be the centre building for the fictional town of Sandford;[16] however, the Bishop's Palace is identifiable in some shots (and was itself used as the setting for some scenes).[17] While shooting scenes in their uniforms, Pegg and Frost were often mistaken for genuine police officers and asked for directions by passers-by.[18] Filming also took place at the Hendon Police College, including the driving school skid pan and athletic track.[19] Next to Hendon is Mill Hill where Finchley Nurseries is located which is where the flower shop scene was filmed.[20] Filming commenced on 19 March 2006 and lasted for eleven weeks.[21][22] After editing, Wright ended up cutting half an hour of footage from the film.[23]

If you want to find an ambitious club, try us at Taunton Town, good chance if we can get promoted at the end of the season, Yeovil go down again and we'd be in the same league.

WsM and particularly Bath City are also ambitious non league clubs
