Founded over 70 years ago, Achilles currently field two sides in the Suffolk & Ipswich League (SIL). The Senior team plays in the Senior Division while the reserves operate in the “A” Reserves Division. Since 2000 both squads have been successful in both the League and League Cup competitions. The Seniors have won the SIL Senior League title twice and the Suffolk FA Senior Cup won twice in three seasons.
Together with Sunday League club, Pauls FC, Achilles share the use of the well-sheltered pitch, the spacious changing facilities, and the social benefits provided by a large clubhouse. Achilles also run an over 35s team in the Norfolk and Suffolk Veterans league, playing home games here at Pauls on Sunday afternoons. The team were originally based at Gresham’s and known as the Eastern Electricity Old Boys before moving to Pauls as the ‘Achilles Vets’ from the 18/19 season.
