Warminster Town as a football club can be traced back to 1878and with a short two year break between 1883/5 it has been in existance ever since.
We started playing friendly games at Holly Lodge, Boreham Road before joining The Wiltshire County League winning our first trophy ( The Wilts Senior Cup 1900/01 ) and won on an irregular basis up to 1933.
We joined the Western League for the first time in 1930 up until the outbreak of the War.
After the War we rejoined the Wiltshire County League until joining the Great Mills Western League in 1983.In the 94/5 season we finished in our highest ever League position of 4th creating many club records along the way and watched by an average crowd of 202.
Although the club accrued severe debts in the 80's a new committee turned things around with a positive building programme so the club could progress.
In the very early 90's the old wooden stand was deemed too dangerous and had to be demolished. From the rubble the present clubhouse was erected and opened on the 24th June 1994 by the then Club Chairman Bob Peaty who organised the complete project costing in the region of £110,000. during the contruction the garages at the Weymouth Street end of the ground were utilised as changing rooms with permission from the western League and the Wiltshire FA.
Unfortunately the club was relegated from the Western League in the 2001/2 season and back to the Wiltshgire League playing in the Premier League.In most of the seasons the Town finished in the top half of the league until 2005/6 when we finished third.
The committee decided a new challenge was needed and was succesful in the application to join The Sydenhams Western League.
In the first season we finished a creditable 8th and the best season was 5th in 2008/9.
The same season we won through to the final of the Wiltshire Senior Cup played at Chippenham Town FC against Highworth Town from the Hellenic Premier League.Following a very close game the Red and Blacks lost in extra time . It was 50 years since their last appearance in the Senior Cup Final.
The club returned to the Toolstation League for the start of the 2012/3 season after an absence of ten years
Ex managers Derek Graham and Andy Crabtree have returned to the club as the new management team having tasted success by taking Frome Town from the Western League to the Calor Gas Premier League.
The Club this year are running a reserve team in the Trowbridge and District League plus under 18's in the Wilts County FA Floodlight League and under 16's in the Mid Wilts Minor League.
