History
Founder members of the Cymru Alliance in 1990, finishing second in 1993 and 1996. As champions Oswestry Town were not eligible for promotion, Welshpool took their place in the League of Wales in the 1996-1997 season instead, finishing 17th.

Next season Welshpool Town were relegated and stayed in the Alliance until winning the competition in 2002 to regain Welsh Premier status. In the 2002/2003 season they finished next to bottom, but appealed against relegation to the FAW, because Neath AFC were denied promotion as they failed to meet Welsh Premier ground criteria. To the surprise of many, they were reinstated in the League for 2003/2004.

In the recent 2005/2006 season, the club finished 6th in the League of Wales, after what is regarded as their best season in the league to date.
