The club established themselves in the fourth division until the 1996–97 campaign, when it achieved a first-ever promotion to Segunda Division B. Two consecutive relegations followed, but the club immediately regained their national status in 2000. Then, it subsequently remained in the fourth level until 2015 (only split by a one-season spell in the third division), when it achieved promotion with club legend Antonio Iriondo as manager.
