The club was founded in 1885 by members of the St.Mary’s Church of England Young Men’s Association and was initially christened as St. Mary’s Young Men’s Association FC.

At the end of the 1896-1897 season the club finally came to be known as Southampton FC.

In 1920 Southampton joined the then newly formed Football League Division 3 and were promoted to Division 2 at the end of the 1920-1921 season. Southampton would continue to stay in Division Two for the next 31 years.

In 1983-84 they were runners-up at the end of the season, only three points behind Liverpool.
