History

Universidad Catolica San Antonio de Murcia Club de Futbol was founded in 1999 and had previously a team which played in Tercera Division from 2000 to 2005. In parallel was founded in 2004 the Club de Futbol Los Garres, making its first appearance in Tercera Division in 2008–09 as Murcia Deportivo Club de Futbol. In 2009 a businessman from Beniajan, Murcia, acquired the club and moved it to his local town; one year later the club relocated again, now to Sangonera la Verde, and, in 2011, UCAM became its new owner.

At the end of the 2011–12 season, after Orihuela suffered relegation from Segunda Division B due to irregularities, UCAM Murcia took its place. After suffering relegation, the club bounced back to the third level immediately, and achieved a respectable second place in his group during the 2014–15 campaign; it missed out promotion in the play-offs, after being knocked out by Bilbao Athletic B, which would later achieve promotion.
