The original Wisbech Town Football Club, which was founded in the 1890s, was one of three clubs that amalgamated in 1920 to form a new club. All three of the clubs had found it hard after the First World War to compete with the strong local clubs in the area: March and King's Lynn. As a result of the amalgamation, the new Wisbech Town Football Club decided to enter the Peterborough and King's Lynn League, winning it at their first attempt. Later the club entered the Eastern Counties, the Southern League and the Dr Marten's League.
