Droitwich Spa Football Club were formed in 1985 and represent the town of Droitwich Spa in the National Football Pyramid.

"The Saltmen" as they are known, play in the Midland Football League - the seventh tier of English non-league football.

There has been Saturday senior football, as well as thriving Sunday and Junior League football for many years now in the historic brine town of Droitwich Spa. The records date back to 1896 when Droitwich Town won the Worcester Saturday Junior Cup.

Other sides representing the town over the years have included: Droitwich United, Droitwich Sports, Droitwich Comrades, Droitwich Juniors and Droitwich St. Peters.

Droitwich Spa FC were formed in 1985 (originally as a Sunday side) as an open aged team when the then Under 16's Droitwich Spa Boys side had no other junior league to participate in.

The club spent its early years in the Worcester Leagues and in 2000 joined the Midland Combination Division 2 after 3 succesful seasons at the top of the Worcester Premier League.

The club has been run and continues to be run today, by a group of volunteers. Without these individuals vital work both on and off the field, the club could not have functioned. Pivotal names in the clubs history include (but is not limited to): Dave and Nick West, Richard Goode, John Williamson, Andrew and Ben Pheasant, Tom Goss, Tom Sanders, Chris Hartshorne, Andy Dyer and Barry Shuck.

Over the last 3 seasons, the club have really flourished under the management team of Wayne Oliver, Mark Owen and Chris Hunt, breaking several club records along the way.

A record high league finish (3rd in the Midland League Division 2) was acheiced in season 2015-16, as well as the club winning the prestigious Presidents Cup and the Worcestershire Junior Cup the same season. The attendance record was also broken as almost 200 spectators watched their league encounter with Rostance Edwards in front of the TV cameras in March 2016.

The clubs record victory came in November 2016 - a 10-1 victory over Sutton United. Nick Seabourne equalled James Lemon's record of six goals in a game during this fixture!

The club continue to grow from strength to strength, with an average gate in three figures for season 2016-17 - almost unheard of in the seventh tier of English non-league football. The club have also introduced two youth sides to give the town's young footballers the opportunity of representing their town in the future, and further new developments off the field are all pointing towards an exciting future for football in Droitwich Spa.

Home matches are played at the club's King George's Fields ground (a 10 minute walk through Vines Park & along the canal tow path from the town centre) where there is a covered stand, areas of hard standing, a bar, a hot refreshments kiosk and club shop. The club also produces a glossy match-day programme for all home games and openely invites both locals and visitors to come along and experience local football of a pleasing standard on a Saturday afernoon in the Spa.
