The club was formed in 1937 as Long Buckby Nomads. They initially played in the Northampton League and won the South Area Cup in their first season, beating Astcote. After the war the Rugby & District League was won for six successive seasons. Buckby then moved to the Central Northants Combination, winning the title in 1955.
The club's rise to current levels started with entry to the UCL in 1968. In their second season they won the 3rd Division title, following up with successive 2nd Division crowns. There were also cup successes in the Northants Junior Cup in 1970 and 1971, Division Two Knockout Cup in 1972 and Daventry Charity Cup in 1972.
Buckby took up a deserved place in the Premier Division and they reached the Knockout Cup finals in 1973 and 1976, losing to Potton and Stamford respectively.
In 1984 Buckby reached the Northants Senior cup final, losing to Kettering in a replay, while a year later they beat Baldock 7-3 over two legs in the Knockout cup final and were league runners-up to Arlesey. On 1986 they were Knockout cup runners-up.
In 1993 Buckby moved to a new pitch on the Station Road site, but on field fortunes have been disappointing in recent years, the Bucks surviving several brushes with relegation.
