Although the Football Club has enjoyed success over the years the team is currently (2020) in abeyance.
FC Barton Leverkusen
Formed by the current manager, Dean Porter, the club runs two teams and is rapidly making a name for itself in South Somerset.
Many people wonder how the club got its name. Back in the mists of time (2011) at a meeting in the Barton Inn to discuss the possibilities, “FC Barton” was suggested. It was decided that this was too ‘ordinary’. After more liquid refreshment, the name ‘Leverkusen’ came out of the pot together with the proposal that the team colours should be pink and so “FC Barton Leverkusen” was born.
It is becoming a habit for Barton’s football team to win silverware at the end of a season. In 2013 the team won the Yeovil & District Division 2 Cup and in May 2014 Barton Leverkusen secured the Yeovil & District Division 1 Cup with a dramatic victory over Stoke in the final by three goals to two. With the two sides just one place apart in the final table and having beaten each other in the league during the season a close contest was anticipated. The final lived up to the hype with Adam Cribb scoring a hat trick, the winning goal coming just eight minutes from the final whistle.
The Reserves finished 11th in Division 3 following a tough season in which they won six and drew six of their matches.
