History:

The Club was founded in 1902 but little is recorded of the early years. They joined the Hampshire League in 1947/48 as Hythe and Power United and gained promotion into Division Two in 1950. However after two seasons they were relagated and the club endured a period of “struggle” and eventually dropped back into Southampton Junior Football in the early sixties. Then followed a “yo-yo” existence as the Club went up and down the Leagues before returning to the Hampshire League in 1994, finishing as Division Three runners-up . With the re-organisation of the Leagues in 2004 Hythe’s facilities gained them a place in the Wessex League where they have remained until this day. With strong hopes of a new ground in the not too distant future the Club are looking towards better things both on and off the field.

An alternative “route” to the ground is to catch the Hythe Ferry from Southampton across Southampton Water, amongst all the Cruise ships, Yachts and Commercial vessels, and see the picturesque village at its best as you land at the famous Pier and take the short train ride to the village itself. The ground is within very easy walking distance from the pier.
