History

The club was established in 1992 as a merger between two local clubs in the Hellenic Football League, Supermarine F.C. and Swindon Athletic F.C. Both clubs had problems with Supermarine finishing bottom of Division One in the 1991–92 season and Swindon Athletic having difficulties meeting the new ground grading requirements, required by the league, at their Swindon Borough Council owned Southbrook Recreation ground, so the two clubs decided to merge and took Swindon Athletic's place in the Hellenic League Premier Division.

Supermarine F.C. was originally set up in 1946 from the social club associated with the Supermarine aircraft company. The club was originally called Vickers Armstrong and later shortened to Vickers FC. The club originally played in the Swindon & District league and become founder members of the Wiltshire Football League in 1976, starting in Senior Division 1. The club joined the Hellenic League in Division One for the 1982–83 season, under the name of Supermarine, and obtained promotion to the Premier Division following their first campaign, where the club spent the next seven seasons. During their time in the Premier Division, the club also won the Wiltshire Senior Cup in the 1985–86 season. After being relegated from the Premier Division in season 1989–90, the club struggled in Division One and at the end of the 1991–92 season, their last before they merged, finished in last place.

Swindon Athletic F.C. was established in 1968 and known as Penhill until the end of the 1988–89 season. Like Supermarine, they were founder members of the Wiltshire Football Lea
