The club was established in 1902. In 1947 and then known as Hythe and Power United, they joined Division Three West of the Hampshire League. They won the division in 1949–50, but were relegated back to Division Three West at the end of the 1951–52 season. They were transferred to Division Three East in 1954, and the two third divisions were merged into one in 1955.

After finishing bottom of Division Three in 1962, the club returned to the Southampton Junior Division. They won Division Two of the Southampton League in 1970–71. The following season they finished second in Division One and were promoted to the Premier Division. However, two relegations saw the club back in Division Two by 1975. They won the title in 1975–76, but then yo-yoed between Division One and Division Two for several seasons. They were promoted to the Premier Division in 1986, and returned to the Hampshire League in 1994 when they joined Division Three. After finishing as runners-up in their first season, they were promoted to Division Two. In 1999 the league was reorganised and the club were placed in the Premier Division.
