After being without a football team for several seasons Shelley returned to the District League in the early 1980s and unearthed a seam of local talent both on and off the field that has seen the club continue until the present day.
At first there was just one team, which was followed by a reserve team and also one operating in the Sunday league.
This of course has been followed by Junior teams at various age groups.
The club are deeply indebted to the Sports and Social Club for acting as their headquarters and providing changing rooms with games being played at the Recreation Ground.
