History:

Portsmouth Royal Navy FC was formed in 1962 with the idea of providing football at the highest level possible to bridge the gap between the United Services midweek leagues and the Royal Navy and Combined Services Representative sides. The Club played in the Hampshire Leagues until becoming one of the founder membes of the Wessex League in 1986. They were Hampshire League Division Two winners in 1968, 1978 and 1981 and won the Russell Cotes Cup in 1968. They returned to the Hampshire League at the end of the 2001/02 season. This prompted changes to the structure of the club and they regained their place in the Wessex League in 2004 having opened up the playing side of the Club to civilians and members of the other Armed Forces. The ground now boasts a 500 seat covered stand and two floodlit astroturf pitches and whilst the Club remain in Division One of the League they did beat Premier side Moneyfields at Fratton Park in 2012 to win the Portsmouth Senior Cup for the first time in their history.
