Stapenhill Football Club formed in 1947, and ten years after formation joined the Leicestershire Senior League Division Two found immediate success. Gaining promotion in our debut season, and winning the Division One Championship the following two seasons. We remained in that division, apart from a single season (1971/1972) in Division Two. Winning the top flight now renamed the Premier Division twice more in 1986/1987 and 1988/1989. Then joining the Midland Combination Premier Division, staying there for five seasons.

Until becoming a founding member of the Midland Alliance, where the club remained until resigning in January 2002. Later that year The Swans joined the Leicestershire Senior League, and got promoted as runners up into the Premier Division.

In 2007/2008, Stapenhill were members of the Midland Alliance, but after a fire ravaged the home stadium, the club were forced to close down. The club reformed in 2009 and rejoined the Leicestershire Senior League. After winning that league, promotion to the East Midlands Counties League followed.

We then moved sideways from the East Midlands Counties League to Midland Football League Division one in the 2018/2019 season.
