OVERVIEW OF THE CLUB
(1998 – 2005)
On the 18th of August Noella Spaulding place an advertisement in the Sunday Cleaner declaring her wish to form a Football Club. A positive response resulted in a meeting at Port Antonio High School on September 18. A total of twenty four (24) memberships were distributed to fourteen (14) males and ten (10) females including four (4) members of the Executives Body. As a result Fantastic Sports was born. Legend has it that Spaulding was inspired to choose club colours, lavender and light yellow. Fantastic Sport Club emerged as one of the leading clubs of both Portland and St. Mary, competing in both Daryl Vaz Corner League and Premier League. In 2000, the club won its first trophy, the Daryl Vaz Corner League and also played in the first Premier League final, losing 2-1 to Gaza Sports Club.
With Harris seal
(2005 – 2010)
In 2005 Noella Spaulding became club president for the first time. Spaulding took over the presidency as the club was on the verge of folding. The club had not won anything since the Daryl Vaz Corner League in 2000 and its finances suffered as a result. Spaulding was subsequently club president on five separate occasions between 1999 and 2006 and spent six (6) years at the helm. One of her main achievements was to help Portland acquire its own stadium. On March 8, 2006, it moved into the National Stadium, a stadium with a capacity of 8,000. Spaulding also launched a campaign to recruit more club members and by 2009 the club had over 10,000. This led to the club moving again, this time to St. Andrews, which inaugurated in the same year. This stadium had an initial capacity of 22,000, later expanded to an impressive 60,000. In 2008 we appointed Keva Harris as manager. This saw the club’s fortunes began to improve on the field.
