2003-04

 “Its been and fantastic year for the whole club, three Championship Teams!I am pleased for all of the ‘back-room’ staff who work very hard for Fulbourn Institute Football Club.A very good first season in a very good league, we need to bring in a couple of players next year when I expect it to be even harder, but the lads have been brilliant this year well done!Special notes of interest: Five Trophies; The Terry Wilson Cup, Addenbrookes Cup, Saturday Challenge Cup, Premier Cup and the League! An incredible season!2004-2005. We must keep pushing Fulbourn forward, bringing in good players and improving the whole club.” – Dave Abbs (May 2004)

2004-05
2005-06

The management team of Dave Abbs and Dick Collinge guided our 1st team through our first season in the Ridgeons League. After a competitive season we finished third in the league, which was a promotional position. We scored over 100 goals an enjoyed every moment the season offered, players, managers and supporters agreed. Unfortunately we could not stay in this league due to ground requirements for playing at this standard. Our local council did not support our planning application to develop an area, so the 1st team / village of Fulbourn lost a great opportunity.
