The club was formed in 1943 and won the Beds Intermediate Cup in the first season. After the war they joined the South Midlands League and were soon established as one of the county's leading lights winning the Senior cup in 1948 and 1949. After finishing as SML runners-up in 1955 they sought a higher standard of football but their application to join the Parthenon League was rejected. Potton faced a season without competitive football, but were admitted to play in the UCL Cup, which was played on a league basis in the second half of the season.

In 1956 Potton joined several UCL clubs in the Central Alliance Division One South, linking up again with theUCL five years later. Success was a long time coming before United won their first UCL title in 1987, they followed up with a return success two years later after a storming run in to the campaign.

Cup success has been much more plentiful. The Bedfordshire Senior Cup has been won on five occasions with the North Beds Charity Cup won twelve times. There have been four Hunts Premier Cup successes, four Hinchingbrooke Cup wins and a UCL Knockout Cup win in 1973. The Wallspan Floodlit Cup, Southern Combination Cup and East Anglian Cup have also had spells in residence at The Hollow.

In 2001 Potton lost their top flight status for the first time, but their 60th anniversary campaign, which kicked off with a celebration match against Rushden & Diamonds, ended with the Division One championship earning a Premier return.

Potton made a sensational return to the top flight, missing the title by two points but winning the League Knockout Cup, North Beds Charity Cup, Hinchingbrooke Cup and Highest Aggregate Goalscorers trophy. Managerial duo Dick Newman and Roy Bloxham were named the league managers of the year.

The 2005-06 season saw the Royals pipped at the post to the Premier title while retaining the North Beds Charity Cup, while a season later saw silverware prove elusive as the Royals finished runners-up in the Knockout and North Beds Charity Cups.
A decline in fortunes saw the Royals relegated back to Division One in 2009, but they reached the Bedfordshire Senior Trophy final in 2009-10, losing on penalties to Crawley Green.
