The Torbay Trojans are steaped in history…Back in the early 80’s a group of guys from a factory in Paignton formed the beginnings of a local American Football team called the ‘STC Rebels’.
Over those early years the team grew massively and then developed into the team we are today…
the Torbay Trojans. The team progressed into quite a force and played around the country for well
over 15yrs during the late 80’s and 90’s (when the sport boomed in the UK). The Trojans
unfortunately disbanded around the turn of the millenium through lack of players, funds and
support running the club.
Over the last few years a quiet sporting revolution has been taking place in the West Country. This revolution has not only seen the growth of American football at junior and senior level but has seen the South West attract the attention of the sports’ governing body BAFA for the diversity and innovative work that is being conducted here. With 2012 witnessing a revival of the game within the South West of England, Torbay Trojans are now trying to become the force it once was within the UK currently competing in the BAFA National SFC 2 West League
