Club History:

Merthyr Saints were elected to the Welsh Football League in 1995, after winning the South Wales Amateur League for the third time whilst playing under the name of Hoover Sports and sharing the use of Penydarren Park home of Merthyr Tydfil FC. The Club's first season in the Welsh League was a successful one and promotion to Welsh League Division 2 was achieved at the first attempt.

In the year 2000, Hoover Sports merged with St. Illtyds FC and relocated to the ICI Rifle Fields ground in Pant, just off the A465, raising the necessary money to upgrade the facilities and changing their name to Merthyr Saints FC.

Merthyr Saints remained in Welsh League Division 2 for ten consecutive seasons with their highest finishing position being fifth in 2003/04. Merthyr Saints were unfortunate to be relegated to Welsh League Division 3 at the end of the 2006/07 season after finishing fourth from bottom of Division 2.

In season 2008/09 Merthyr Saints were relegated once more and returned to the South Wales Amateur League. In 2009-2010 a young Merthyr Saints side finished outside the bottom 3 relegation positions in the South Wales Amateur League Division 1, but due to a restructure of Welsh football still found themselves demoted a division.

In season 2012-2013 Merthyr Saints were promoted back to South Wales Amateur League Division 1 after finishing the season as champions.

Following a slightly shaky start to their first season back in the top division of the Amateur League, Merthyr Saints rallied strongly in the second half of the campaign eventually finishing in a very creditable seventh place. Season 2014-15 saw Saints came so close to regaining their place in the Welsh League but eventually had to be content with the runners-up spot. This was enough though to secure them a place in the Premier Division of the new South Wales Alliance League and they ended the 2015-16 in a comfortable mid table position.

Merthyr Saints begin the 202-21 season in their impressive new facility
