The club joined the Northern League in 1947, spending 35 years in that competition until moving to the North West Counties League in 1982. A five-season spell in that league (including finishing as league runners-up in their first season saw them in a position to join the
Northern Premier Leaguewhen they expanded to form a second division in 1987.
The move to the NPL did not prove successful, and by 1990 they were relegated back to the North West Counties League, where they stayed for seven seasons before returning once more to the Northern League, fifteen years after originally leaving that league.
In 1981-82, they had their best ever
FA Cuprun, reaching the second round, beating Football Leagueclub Chester City in the first round.
In 2007, they changed their name to Penrith Town, but a merger a year later with
