History

The club was formally established in 1905 when it is believed that it adopted its first formal constitution.[2] The club joined the Wycombe League and achieved its first success in winning it in the 1911–12 season. The team remained in the Wycombe leagues, winning the league on several occasions until they became founder members of the Chiltonian league in 1984.[3][4] During this period the club moved to their home of French School Meadows, when they purchased it in 1949. Prior to the building of the club house the HQ for the club was the Horse & Groom Public House.

The club then spent the next ten seasons in the top division of the Chiltonian league before suffering relegation to Division one at the end of the 1993–94 season. However the club only spent a single season in Division one gaining promotion to the Premier Division at their first attempt.[3] The club then remained in the Premier Division until the end of the 1999–2000 season, when the league merged with the Hellenic Football League, when they were placed in Division One East. The club has since remained in Division one East of this league finishing Runners-up once in the 2002–03 season.[3]
