Odd Down was founded in 1901. During the 1920s the club played in the Wiltshire Football League, but prior to World War II had graduated to playing in the Somerset Senior League. Re-grouping after the war, Odd Down started off again in the Somerset Senior League and in the 1946–47 season finished as runners-up to Somerton. They also won the Mid-Somerset Football League that season, a league formed to make up for the shortage of Somerset Senior League fixtures at that time.
From 1967 to 1972 the club formed a steering committee which worked hard to provide a social club, eventually opening one on 5 April 1972. The hard work paid off as Odd Down gained admittance to the Western Football League for the start of the 1977–78 season.
In our centenary year of 2001 Odd Down reached the final of the Somerset Premier Cup for the first time, losing 1–0 to Southern League side Clevedon Town. The feat was repeated in 2004, this time going down 5–0 to Yeovil Town at the club’s Huish Park home.
We remained in the Premier Division until relegation to Division One in 2008, but were promoted back to the Premier Division. Then in season 2015/16 Odd Down became Premier Division Champions and remain in the Premier Division until 2021/22 season.
