The club was formed in 1969, currently playing their trades in the country’s top flight league; they won fifteen league titles, several FA cup crowns and super cup titles.

The blue boys appeared in the CAF champions league and Confederations cup several times and reached the quarterfinal of the continent’s elite clubs competition in 90s.

But they failed to participate in the 2016 CAF Confederations cup after lifting the FF cup trophy in 2015.

They were demoted to the second tier twice in 2013 and 2016 seasons but regained promotion to the first division league.

The blue boys produced one of the greatest players for the Gambia national team; the Scorpions such as Alagie Njie Biri, Jatto Ceesay, Bai Omar Samba, Mustapha Jarju Toubabo, Samuel Kargbo, Omar Colley, George Lobba and Lamin Conateh.
