The history of the present day Gresford Athletic football club stretches back to 1946 although it is known that the club existed in the 1920’s.

Gresford Athletic won the ‘West’ Division of the Wrexham league in the 1946/47 season. The next time the club won a league trophy was in 1962/63 when they won Division 2 of the Wrexham league.

In 1969 Division Three was split into two sections, A and B with Gresford reserves winning the Section A title.

The club remained in the Welsh National (Wrexham Area) League until the introduction of the Cymru Alliance League in season 1990-91 when they became one of the founder members of the League. They remained in the Cymru Alliance League for four seasons before being relegated back to the Welsh National League, during this four-year period they reached the League Cup final losing to a very strong Rhyl side at Newi Cefn Druids.

They became Champions of the Welsh National Premier League in season 1995-96 but due to financial difficulties could not meet the ground criteria for promotion back to the Cymru Alliance. During that season, Gresford Athletic Colts also won the Division 2 title.

The following season a new committee formed with the intention of taking the club back into the Cymru Alliance.
This was achieved in season 2000-01 when they were once again Champions of the Welsh National Premier League and with the finances in place the committee managed to upgrade Clappers Lane to Cymru Alliance standards, in the same season they were also beaten finalist’s in the Welsh Trophy.

Upon the re-structure of football in Wales they re-entered the Welsh National Premier League in season 2010/11 following 9 seasons in the Cymru Alliance League. This proved to be a difficult season for the Club with them finishing in the bottom four however the following 3 seasons saw them steadily move up the League table. The summer of 2014 saw a new management team and committee introduced which brought in a number of new players in with the emphasis both on and off the pitch being on achieving promotion to the Huws Gray Alliance, A 24 match unbeaten run saw them maintain a control on the league whilst also seeing a successful run in the Welsh Cup, Trophy and League Cup competitions and it was January before they finally lost a game however the league title was not clinched until the final game of the season by which time the work had been completed behind the scenes with promotion having already been confirmed. The 2015/16 season saw Gresford claim their highest ever finish in Tier 2 when they finished the season in 6th place.
