The Team is currently managed by Dale Gardiner & Nathan Cadette and played in the Cardiff Combination Premier League until season 2010 / 2011 when we were promoted to the South Wales Amateur League, Division 3
We secured the South Wales Amateur League 2nd Division League Title at our first attempt -
We finished 7th in our first season in Division 1 (2011 / 2012) and reached the semi-final of the South Wales Football Association Senior Cup ,
Season (2012 / 2013) started well, we reached the final of the SWFA Senior Cup where we played Rhoose FC on May 10th 2013. We were proud holders of the SOUTH WALES FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION SENIOR CUP after beating red hot favourites, Rhoose FC, 4-2 after extra time.
In the League we suffered with the Cup runs but finished 5th, an improvement on the previous season. And the following season we finished 4th.
2014 / 2015 - we took the decision to move to a new 3G ground at the University in Llanrumney, Cardiff........ this helped our progress and we finished as Champions of SWAL Div 1 - Had to lodge an appeal to gain entry into the Welsh League then beat Pontlottyn 4-1 at Cardiff City Stadium - Welsh League here we come 2015 / 2016.
Nathan Cadette (ex-Cardiff City) took over at the helm and we had a great 1st Season in the Welsh League, finishing 4th, having been at the top or close to the top all season. We also reached the final of the SWFA Floodlit Senior Cup, eventually beaten by 1st division Taffs Well. We went one better the following season and finished runners up to Llantwit Major, even after having 3 points deducted, unjustly in our opinion.
Full credit to Nathan Cadette and the players. Sadly Nathan resigned after gaining promotion due to his work commitments.
By the end of May we were interviewing for a new management team, despite lots of interest, local trio Gareth Morgan (Manager), Dom Dwyer (Assistant Manager) & Rhodri Morgan (Coach & Physio), were selected as the new managemnet team. Unfortunately by Christmas of 2017 the club sought to to move in a differnt direction which resulted in local man and Team Captain, Dale Gardiner taking over as the new Manager, he moved quickly to bring back to the club. Nathan Cadette, whose work situation had changed and he was in a position to help the club move forward.
Season 2017/2018 saw us just miss our on promotion to Division 1 by 3 points - we had a terrible run of injuries in the last 6 weeks of the season and that took it's toll, when we finished 4th - still an excellent effort with all the turmoil during the season.
We are now in our eleventh season, having started right at the very bottom of the Welsh Pyramid system and this season we now have an Under 9's & Under 12's in the Cardiiff & District Football League, with more to come next year.
Aside from goalkeeper, Chris Golton who has moved to Llanrumney Utd and long serving Lee Gardiner (who as retired) the remainderof the squad from last season has re-signed for 2018 / 2019. We have added new signings Dale Morris, Hermon Yohanes, Hishi Lama, Riccardo Mackenzie, Nicky King & Marko Jenkins to the already sucessful squad, plus our latest arrival from Caerau Ely, Exauce Dimonekene.
