History:

The Club was founded in 1898 and were founder members of the New Forest League which they won on five occasions. Following the First World War the club played in the Bournemouth League and had three seasons in the Hampshire League before returning to local football. They returned to the New Forest League before re-joining the Hampshire League in the mid-thirties. In 1951 they moved to their present ground, the seventh since the Club’s formation. They were Hampshire League Division Three Champions in 1960 and progressed to Division One as well as winning the Hampshire Intermediate Cup. After relegation they returned to the Premier division in 1971 and went down by a single goal to Alton Town in the Hampshire Senior Cup Final a year later. The Division One Championship was won in 1976 and ten years later the club were founder members of the Wessex League. Non-League giants Kingstonian Town were beaten in the FA Cup in 2002 and three years later “Brock” reached the Third Qualifying Round of the FA Cup before bowing out to Bath City. 2011 saw them relegated from the Premier Division for the first time but the “exile” lasted only two seasons and in both those seasons the Club reached the Final of the League Cup, before ensuring promotion and the First Division Championship on the last Saturday of the 2012/13 season.

Brockenhurst is a village situated in the heart of the New Forest National Park, is home to the famous New Forest Show,and pedestrians and vehicles alike share the roads and pavements with the Forest ponies.
