Formed in 1913 as Easington Colliery Welfare, the club got off to a slow start before any honours came Colliery's way but in the thirties Easington started to dominate the Wearside League. Winning 5 Championships and 5 Cup Finals. In 1955 Easington's biggest day came when a crowd of 4,500 saw the Colliery lose 2-0 to Tranmere Rovers in the first round of the FA Cup the only time that Easington have reached the first round proper.
In 1964 Easington dis-banded but re-formed in 1973. Once more honours came Easington's way with 3 Cup Final victories. A new era was just around the corner and in 1980 the Welfare amalgamated with highly successful Easington Rangers from the Houghton and District League and EASINGTON COLLIERY A.F.C were born.
The new Easington wanted to play at a higher level and quickly plans to progress were made but Easington's first attempt to join the Northern League was unsuccessful as their new stand was incomplete. In 1985, Easington were finally elected to the Northern League 2nd Division and soon made their presence felt. Winning promotion at the first attempt, scoring over 100 goals and winning their last 9 games to gain runners-up spot behind Newcastle Blue Star. The following year Easington consolidated their First Division spot and they also reached the final of the League Cup only to lose in the final to Spennymoor in extra time. In 1988 Easington once again just failed to land a major honour when Bishop Auckland beat them in the County Cup at Roker Park.In 2010 after a long spell without silverware the club lifted the Wearside League Cup with victory over Marske.In 2011 After 6 year out of the northern league the club regained its place back in the STL northern league two.
