The club was formed in 1935 and played in the Hythe and District League before joining the Southampton Junior League after the war. After winning the Southampton Senior Cup in 1947 they moved into the Hampshire League in 1951. For many seasons the club enjoyed something of a yo-yo existence going up and down the Divisions in the League until they reached Division One in 1985 and remained in the top flight until winning the title in 1998. However their facilities prevented further promotion at that stage but they finally joined the Wessex League in 2001. Already competing in the FA Vase the Club now entered the FA Cup for the first time. In 2004 they were relegated to the newly formed Wessex League Division Two where they remained for five seasons before winning promotion to Division One (now the Premier Division) under the management of former Saints star Jon Gittens. The Club consolidated their position over the ensuing seasons until a superb late run saw them take the Title for the first time in 2013 and in the same year they reached the Fourth Qualifying Round of the FA Cup, going out to Southern League Premier side Hastings United.
The Club’s ground at Gang Warily is part of a large Recreation Cenre that covers a variety of sports, both indoor and outdoor, and also caters very widely for children’s activities.
Blackfield itself is within easy reach of Calshot Activities Centre, Lepe Country Park, Exbury Gardens and the famous Beaulieu Motor Museum whilst the towers of the Fawley Oil Refinery dominate the landscape.
