History[edit]

The club was established in May 1989 as a merger of Wiltshire League club Bemerton Athletic, former Salisbury & Andover League club Moon and Bemerton Boys of the Mid-Wilts League.[2] The new club was accepted into the Wessex league for the 1989–90 season.[3] In 1992–93 they entered the FA Cup for the first time, reaching the third qualifying round.[3] The season also saw the club win the Wiltshire Senior Cup, beating Wollen Sports 3–1 in the final,[4] as well as a third-place finish in the Wessex League.

Bemerton won the Wiltshire Senior Cup again in 2004–05 with a 3–1 win over Corsham Town in the final.[4] After winning the Wessex League Cup in 2009–10, they were Wessex League runners-up in 2010–11, also winning the Senior Cup for the third time after a 2–0 win against Bradford Town. The following season saw them finish as league runners-up again,[3] as well as winning the Hampshire FA's Russell Cotes Cup, beating Christchurch 2–0 in the final.[5]
