Buntingford Town F.C.
The current crest of Buntingford Town FC was created in the year 2000 after the club committee considered several designs and opted for that chiefly proposed by club webmaster and veteran player, Chris Thurgill.
The crest features a bird on a branch that is in fact a bunting (after which the town of Buntingford was named). This 'bird on a branch' graphic is also used by other local organisations such as the town council and local cricket club.
A river ford crossing is located in the town of Buntingford (explaining how the 'ford' element was added to the town name). This is represented on the football club crest by a 'river' meandering between the club name and bird icon.
Finally the crest shows the club's year of formation. The club's committee had felt it important to show this on the Buntingford Town FC crest to mark the organisation's long and strong heritage in the area.
Thanks to Richard Daly, Vice Chairman, Secretary and First Team Manager at Buntingford Town FC, for the above crest and information.
