Tow Law is a small town in the A68 in County Durham whose most recent claim to fame was as the site where most of the North East's diseased cattle were disposed of down a disused pit on the edge of town during the 2001 foot and mouth outbreak. However the town's football club has brought a good deal of good times to the area to make them forget about the pong.
Formed in 1890 as simply Tow Law (because they weren't big enough to be considered a town at the time), they were founder members of the Auckland District League two years later. They currently play in the Northern League - the ninth tier in English football - which they first joined in 1894, and have stayed there pretty much ever since, winning the title in 1924, 1925 and 1995. But it is as a cup team that they are perhaps best remembered.
