Club History

A Team was formed in the 1890’s called Hamworthy St Michael’s, winning their first trophy the Whitehead Minor Cup in the 1899-1900 Season.

Hamworthy Football Club was formed in 1926, and moved to the present ground The County Ground (formally known as the Nursery) in 1950.

Hamworthy Football Club amalgamated with Trinidad Old Boys at the start of the 1971-72 season to form Hamworthy United Football Club as it is known today.

Hamworthy United have had great success at all levels over the years in various competitions, and hold the record of having been the only team to have played in every season of the Dorset Combination League from its formation until it finished to become the Dorset Premier League at the end of the 2001-2002 season.

After winning the league two years running they were promoted in the 2004-2005 Season to Wessex League Division 1, winning the Wessex League Cup in their first season. They were runners up in the Dorset Senior Cup in 2004-2005, but went one better in 2005-2006 beating Poole Town in the final.
