Brief History of the Club

The club was formed in the Crown Hotel at a meeting on 13 October 1890. The meeting was chaired by E. B. Cooper, headmaster of Dr Challoner's Grammar School, who had been recommended to the school by W. G. Grace.[1] The club rules were agreed four days later, and the club's first match took place in November, with Amersham losing 2–1 to Wycombe Marsh at Barn Meadow.

 

In 1902–03 the club won the Wycombe and District Combination League.[1] After World War I they were league champions again in 1919–20 and 1920–21. In 1923 the club joined Division Two of the Spartan League, where they remained until leaving the league in 1929.[2] They rejoined the league in 1935 and were placed in Division Two West.[3] Following World War II the club did not rejoin the league in 1945–46.[3] They became members of Division Two of the Great Western Combination in 1949.

In 1953 the club were founder members of the Hellenic League, winning the inaugural League Cup in 1953–54.[1] The club's reserve team also joined the league in 1956, playing in Division One until 1960.[5] The club finished bottom of the Premier Division in 1961 and would have been relegated to Division One, but switched to the London League for the 1961–62 season.[6] However, after just one season in the London League they returned to the Hellenic League and were placed in Division One. They won Division One in 1962–63, earning promotion to the Premier Division, where they were league champions the following season. After finishing as runners-up in 1964–65 and 1965–66 the club went into decline, and were relegated to Division One B at the end of the 1970–71 season, in which they finished bottom of the Premier Division.[6]
