This club was formed in 1919, deriving their strength from Railways workers in Sekondi. The team were highly inspired by Edward Acquah, a burly forward player and so they won the national league in 1960 after 2 fruitless attempts. In 1961, Real Republikans got established and this team took any chance of winning from Wise. Edward Acquah and the team of show boys too made a poor show in the league title defence.

In October 2008, the wise team suffered relegation to lower division over a decade ago, putting an impressive performance to defeat Norchip by 3-1 in the premiership campaign opener. This was the time when fans turned up to witness the encounter top the Sekondi guys for a comeback.
