Cadoxton Albion 1946-47.jpg



Cadoxton Albion Football Club was established on July 11th 1946. With the horrors of the Second World War fresh in people’s minds and rationing still in place in South Wales, the club was created by old friends to be able to socialise and play together regularly. 

In 1973 the club began to play their home games at the Athletic Ground. After 2 seasons it was agreed that "The Albion" would change its name to Barry Athletic to fit in with the Cricket, Bowls and Tennis clubs at the ground. On the 11th of July 1975, the name change was made official and Barry Athletic Football Club was born.
