Petersfield United FC was founded in 1889, but little is documented about their early history. In 1981-82 they were Hampshire League Division Two Champions (on goal difference) and were promoted to Division One. In 1984-85 they joined Isthmian League Division Two South, where they played until being placed in Division Three following re-organisation for the 1991-92 season.
