The original Bishop Sutton football club was established in the 1900s but folded during the war. The modern club was established in 1977 as an under-12 team and joined the Woodspring and District League. As the team aged, they progressed to under-16 football, before joining the Bristol & Avon League. In 1980โ€“81 the club won the Somerset Junior Cup.

In 1983 Bishop Sutton moved up to theย Somerset County League, joining Division One. They were Division One champions at the first attempt, earning promotion to the Premier Division. The club finished as runners-up in the Premier Division in 1989โ€“90, and after finishing fourth the following season, they were accepted into Division One of theย Western League.

Inย 1997โ€“98 the club won Division One and were promoted to the Premier Division. Despite finishing second-from-bottom of the league inย 2006โ€“07, they were not relegated and went on to win the Premier Division title in 2012โ€“13. However, the club had not applied for promotion to theย Southern League, and so remained in the Premier Division.

However, after Bishop Sutton won the league, manager Lee Lashenko resigned. The club subsequently finished in the bottom three of the Premier Division inย 2013โ€“14ย and then finished bottom of the division theย following season, resulting in relegation to Division One. They went on to finish bottom of Division Oneย 2015โ€“16ย but were not relegated.
