The Club was formed by John Foster and 3 other local lads as a youth team for the village in 1969. Over the past 47 years the club has progressed through the Southampton Junior & Senior Leagues to the old Hants League in 1993, and then on to the Wessex League Division 3 in 2004, becoming a founder member of the Hampshire Premier League in 2007. After a 5 year struggle, circumstances forced the club to resign midseason in 2012.
Good fortune was around the corner and we rejoined the league the following season, taking the runners up spot which took us back into the Senior Division with the reserves also taking the Combination title. 2014/15 saw the First team take the Senior title and the strong reserves gaining the Combination title for the second time.

Things then began to pick up for the club as we saw back to back promotion the following 2 seasons. Due to ground improvements we were now able to achieve promotion back into the Wessex League. Finishing 3rd in the 2015/16 season was enough to secure that whilst the Reserves once again won the Combination Title.
The 2016/17 season saw us become Wessex Division 1 Champions at the first time of asking with a very dominant campaign, putting us into the Wessex Premier for the very first time.
In the 2017/18 season we were now eligible to enter the FA Vase competition and on our maiden campaign we made club history by reaching the 5th Round which remains a record achievement, whilst finishing in a respectable 10th league position.
The 2018/19 & 2019/20 seasons have seen the club establish itself as a well respected member of the Wessex Premier League, alongside the Reserves who secured the Wyvern Combination title in 2018/19 and were in a good position to retain it until the Coronavirus pandemic halted all sport late into the 19/20 season.
