The club was founded in 1879 and won the inaugural Huntingdonshire Senior Cup ten years later. The Saints were to become regular winners of the county cup and also enjoyed success in the Fellows and Scott-Gatty Cups. The Saints took the name St Neots & District in 1924 and played in the South Midlands League from 1927 to 1949, apart from a three year spell in the UCL just before World War Two. The SML title was won in 1933.
In 1949 the Saints became founder members of the Metropolitan League winning both league and cup. A nomadic spell saw a return to the UCL in 1951 and a four year stint in the Central Alliance before the Metroplitan League was rejoined in 1960. In their first season the Saints were runners up to Arsenal 'A' and winners of the professional cup. At this time in their history the club employed a full time manager and up to twenty professionals.
In 1966 the Saints rejoined the UCL once again and embarked on a best ever FA Cup run before losing 2-0 at Walsall in Round One. The league and cup double was won in 1968 with the league cup retained twelve months later. They also won the Hunts Senior Cup for twelve successive seasons from 1958 to 1969, a national record.
From 1969 to 1973 the Saints played in the Eastern Counties League before rejoining the UCL. They enjoyed 14 unremarkable years in the league before the loss of the Shortsands ground for development saw them close.
The club reformed in 1989 playing in the Huntingdonshire League. After four successive championships they moved to Rowley Park and returned to UCL football and continued their run of successive, winning the Division One title at the first attempt and stepping up to the Premier.
Recent seasons have seen the Saints emerge as prominent members of the top flight and they have enjoyed success in the FA Vase in recent years, notably when reaching the FA Vase 5th Round in 2002. In the 2005-06 campaign they reached three cup finals but were beaten in all three.
