The Tigers were formed in 1929 and played in the Kings Lynn and Peterborough Leagues pre war. They joined the UCL after World War Two and enjoyed a good spell in the early fifties, finishing third in 1952 and 1955 and runners up to March in 1954.

In 1955, under the management of ex-Crystal Palace player Len Richley, holbeach joined the Eastern Counties League where they stayed for seven years, competing against the likes of the Tottenham and West Ham A sides. The only on field success came with victory in the Lincs Senior Cup B in 1958.

In 1962 the Tigers joined the Midland Counties League but failed to gain re-election after finishing next to bottom and they returned to the UCL.

After missing out on the championship by a single point in their first season back the Tigers carried off the Knockout Cup in 1965, beating Desborough 7-1 in the final. Long serving manager Freddie Watkins guided Holbeach to the runners up medals in 1969, but the seventies were a decade to forget apart from a second placed finish in 1974. Towards the end of the decade Holbeach twice narrowly survived the drop due to the inadequate facilities of the Division One leading lights.

The arrival of Lloyd Hudson as player manager turned fortunes around and the 1982-83 campaign saw the Tigers reach the FA Cup 1st Round, where they lost 4-0 to Wrexham at Peterborough's London Road. The Lincs Senior Cup was won in 1984, 1985 and 1987, while Alan Day led the side to the last 16 of the FA Vase in 1988-89. The UCL title was won for the first time in 1990, with the Knockout Cup added for good measure along with the Benevolent Cup - the first domestic treble in the league's history.

After a spell in the doldrums the Tigers launched Steve Evans's managerial career but it was his successor Domenic Genovese who was at the helm for the 1995 Senior cup success.

In 2002 the Tigers finished league runners up but twelve months later a magnificent campaign saw Holbeach crowned Premier champions, adding the Lincs Cup with a 3-1 final defeat of FA Vase winners Brigg.
