Ford Sports FC was founded as recently as 1968. They joined the Central Northants Combination and enjoyed instant success, winning successive promotions to reach the Premier Division by 1970. The clib expanded to three teams and moved to the present ground at Royal Oak Way in 1972.
After establishing themselves among the CNC's leadling lights the Motormen progressed to the UCL in 1977, and they finished Division Two runners-up in 1979, winning promotion.
The higher level initially proved a struggle and the only silverware won was the inaugural Fair Play Award in 1987. In 1993 the Motormen climbed to the top of the tree under the management of Gary Graham, with prolific marksman Neil Brough playing a starring role with over 50 goals.
Royal Oak Way wasn't up to Premier standards but three years later a repeat title saw the Motormen promoted to the top flight. They were Northants Senior Cup runners-up in 1997 and twelve months later carried of their first major trophy, the Knockout Cup.
Further success followed with Premier Division championships under the management of Darren Wood in 2000 and Shane Geary two years later. The Motormen also became the last winners of the Benevolent Cup in 2000. The club enjoyed its best FA Vase run in 2005-06 reaching the Third Round.
The club was relegated from the Premier Division in 2007 and hope for an upturn in fortunes folowing the change of name to Daventry United.
