St Ives Town FC was formed towards the end of the 19th century and the club has enjoyed a nomadic existence playing at various time in the Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, United Counties and Central Amateur Leagues.
The club was a force in local Huntingdonshire circles from the turn of the century, collecting both Huntingdonshire Senior and Junior Cups in 1901. The Senior Cup was won again in 1912 but the club's most successful era was the twenties. The Cambridgeshire League was won on three successive occasions from 1923 to 1925, there were Hunts Senior Cup auccesses in 1923 and 1926 with the Scott-Gatty Cup won in 1923 and 1924. Honours continued to be won in the thirties with the Senior Cup (1930), Scott-Gatty Cup (1932) and Peterborough League championship (1938) all won.
In 1949 the Saints joined the far flung Central Amateur League but twelve months later the club opted for the more local UCL 2nd Division which had been reformed. St Ives struggled and two years later they rejoined the Peterborough League.
The Scott-Gatty Cup was won in 1961 but league fortunes plummetted as the Saints slid down to the 3rd Division of the Peterborough League. They won that division in 1978 and then won speedy promotions, a Division One title success earning a Premier Division place in 1982. Three years later St Ives moved into the UCL.
Huntingdonshire Senior Cup successes were recorded in 1982, 1987 and 1988 while the revival of the Premier Cup saw the Saints reach the first final in 1989, losing 3-0 to Cambridge United. They also reached the Premier Cup final in 1997 and 1998, losing 5-4 to Potton and 2-1 to Biggleswade Town respectively.
After finishing next to bottom in Division One in 2002, St Ives have enjoyed improved fortunes under the management of long serving player Warren Everdell. A memorable 2004-05 campaign saw the Saints finish third in Division One to win promotion to the top flight for the first time.
The 2006-07 campaign was one of the club's best ever as the Hunts Senior Cup, Hunts Premier Cup and Hinchingbrooke Cup were all won in the space of just five days!
