History

The club was founded in 1946 as a rival to the already existing Abingdon Town at the Anchor pub on the bank of the River Thames. After an initial eight years in the North Berks League, United set their sights higher and entered the Hellenic League. For the next 19 seasons the club remained in the bottom division of the Hellenic League, until the 1976-77 season where they earned promotion to the premier Division. They stayed in the premier division until the 1980-81 season where they finished bottom, however after a single season in division one they bounced back up as Runners-up. The club then remained in the Hellenic premier Division for another 24 seasons.[1]
In 1982-83 Season the club entered its first FA competition the FA Vase, and four seasons later were in the FA Cup for the first time ever, losing to Sittingbourne after two replays in the first qualifying round.
In 2003 Manager Andy Slater joined the club and guided them to promotion to the Southern League in the 2005-06 season[2]. The club have since remained in the Southern League Division One South & West.
