History

The club was established in 1985 as a Sunday league club, only moving into Saturday football in 2000, when they joined the Midland Combination. [1] In 2006–07 the club finished third in Division Two, earning promotion to Division One. [2] In 2014 the league merged with the Midland Football Alliance to form the Midland League, with the club becoming members of Division Two.

In 2016–17 Droitwich ended the season as Division Two champions and were set to be promoted to Division One. However, they received a controversial points deduction after the season had ended, which led to them dropping to third place in the table. [3] Although they remained in Division Two, the club entered the FA Vase in the 2017–18 season.
