Earliest records of Oakengates Town are from as early as 1886/87 when they lifted the Shropshire Junior Cup. In 1923/24 they entered the Birmingham and District League. A cup win was soon to follow in the 1926/27 season when they lifted the Shropshire Senior Cup. The reserve's were also successful in these times with a win in the Junior Cup in 1928/29. The first team won the Birmingham Senior Cup in 1929/30 beating Kidderminster Harriers 3-1 and nearly won the Birmingham and District League in 1930/31 only to lose the title on goal difference. They went on to lift the Shropshire Senior Cup again in season 1930/31 and retained it in 1931/32.
Oakengates won the Commander Ethelston Cup in season 1978/79, a feat which they repeated in the 1988/89 season. They won a Shropshire County league and cup double in the 1978/79 season and retained the cup in the 1979/80 season. A sole County Cup win was achieved in 1992/93. In the 1995/96 season Oakengates Town won a Shropshire County League and Cup double again which remains the last success to date.
At the start of the 2005/6 season the club was in serious debt, clubhouse was derelict through vandalism and neglect and Oakengates Town was near extinction. Thankfully a few local’s decided to retain the history of the club and save it. The club was renamed Oakengates Athletic and moved away from its old ground in Oakengates (School Grove) to a new ground at Hadley via a short stay at Oakengates Athletic Stadium.
