The only English club to play in the Welsh Premier, Oswestry Town has a chequered history.
Founder members of the Football Association of Wales, a rare achievement for an English club, Oswestry went into decline despite winning the Cheshire League in 1972.
Fnancial difficulties forced the sale of their Victoria Road ground and the club folded completely in the late 80s.
The reformed club opted for Welsh football and has played in the Cymru Alliance or the Welsh Premier since 1995/6.
After being initially refused entry to the LoW on ground criteria, Oswestry moved to the Park Hall athletics stadium and considerable improvements were carried out to reach Welsh Premier standards, although the ground has a long way to go to attain modern standards in the Welsh Premier.
On 7 June 2003, it was announced that the club would merge with Total Network Solutions, with the aim of playing at a new stadium in Oswestry from 2005/6.
