Shrivenham Football Club was formed in 1900 and just eight years later the infant club became one of the founder members of the North Berks League.
Success in the early years was hard to find however, after winning the Second Division crown at the end of the 1994-95 campaign, two Division One Championships were to follow – in 1997-98 – a season which also included the club winning the Charity Shield, and again in 2000-01, which after completing the required ground improvements, saw the club promoted to Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One West at the second time of asking.
With our inaugural Hellenic League season ending with a creditable twelfth placed finish, a period of building began and after gaining some stability in the league, a further title winning season followed in 2004-05 gaining the club promotion to the Hellenic Premier Division after we won the league by a single point in what was unarguably, at the time, the most amazing season the club had ever experienced.
A club record breaking eighth place finish was recorded in 2007-08, however a gradual decline began and despite avoiding relegation after finishing bottom of the table in 2012-13, just two seasons later relegation was confirmed after a nineteenth placed finish and a decade of Hellenic Premier League football brought a tough era to an end.
Two seasons of mid-table mediocrity ensued, however the club appointed a new Chairman ahead of the 2017-18 campaign and the introduction of a new management team soon followed as the club began rebuilding its ambitions and the bid to return to the Hellenic Premier Division. That goal was achieved at the first attempt as an amazing 12-game unbeaten run to the end of the campaign, found the club in second place and in an exciting final day which saw promotion rivals Easington Sports in third place, needing a result at home and Shrivvy without a fixture, Sports suffered the heartache of defeat against a midtable Letcombe side, and Shrivvy clung on to gain promotion.
The rebuilding was set to continue, however pre-Christmas the club looked odds on favourites to be fighting relegation, before an amazing turn of fortune saw the side go on a seventeen-game unbeaten run, during which time the picked up fifteen wins and two draws, and catapulted the club up to a new record finish of fifth, come the end of the season. 2019-20 saw the side in 4th position in the standings when the season was curtailed early due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the off season saw manager Gareth Davies step down in order to take a break from the game and Chris Hurley was appointed as his successor shortly before the season was due to start.
With a makeshift squad, the club endured a difficult start but despite being in bottom spot by the time the season came to a halt due to the Covid pandemic, new faces had begun to arrive and things were looking up once again, however by with a continued lack of players arriving at the club, preseason 2021-22 brought back memories of the previous campaign, and in a bid to continue moving forward, Rob and Dan Broadbank were appointed to the helm.
This season we have made the move over to the Wiltshire Senior League with our first team competing in the premier division under the experienced eyes of Glenn Horsell, Steven Hendry and Matty Horsell. Our development are competing in division 1. With a youthful squad it’s set to be a year of growth as that should see the club set up with young talent for the future.
