The club was founded in 1920. In the 1972-73 season the club won Division two of the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League.[3] The 1979-80 season saw the club leave the Gloucestershire Northern Senior league and become a founding member of the Gloucestershire County League.[4] The club remained in the Gloucestershire county league until 1986, and re-joined the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League in 1989.[4][5]

In the 2017-18 season the club entered a team in Division Two West of the Hellenic Football League in addition to having a first team in the Gloucestershire Northern Senior league.[6] However the club was expelled from the Gloucestershire Northern Senior League as a result of entering a team in the Hellenic league, as it was accused of not fielding its strongest team in the Northern League when fixtures clashed.[7] The club in its debut season won the Division Two West title and so gained promotion to Division One West for the 2018-19 season.


Newent Town play their games at Wildsmith Meadow, Malswick, Newent, Gloucestershire, GL18 1HE. The ground has one stand with terraced seating.[4]
