Brymbo Football Club was formed over 70 years ago as part of the Brymbo Steelworks Complex. During their history Brymbo F.C. have won the Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) on fourteen occasions and have numerous Cup successes, the major ones being the 1967 Welsh Amateur Cup win and the Welsh F.A. Brymbo F.C became winners of the Cymru Alliance League Cup at the first attempt under management of Gareth Powell who later went onto manage LEX X1. Gareth Powell had also managed Cefn Druids who helped the club steadily consolidated in the Cymru Alliance, helped by a renewed youth policy who strolled to the 1998/99 Cymru Alliance championship, scoring over 100 goals in the process.
In 1996, Brymbo merged with neighbouring village team New Broughton F.C. to create Brymbo Broughton. At that time Brymbo played in the Cymru Alliance League while New Broughton were in the Welsh National League (Wrexham Area) Premier Division. New Broughton had a good, experienced Committee and were financially sound, but unfortunately their playing facilities (which were Council owned) did not reach the standards set for a higher level of football. Brymbo, however, had excellent facilities but were lacking experience and expertise in key off-field positions and were financially insecure.
In 2005, Brymbo Broughton merged with Summerhill United to form Summerhill Brymbo. This lasted for one season before the name was reverted to Brymbo for the 2006–07 season.
In the 2018–19 season the club originally finished third in the league. After the end of the season were deducted the second highest points in Welsh league history, 63 points, and instead finished bottom of the league. The club avoided relegation from the division as FC Nomads of Connah’s Quay withdrew from the league and Hawarden Rangers accepted relegation.
The club is based at The Brymbo Sports and Social Complex in Tanyfron.
The home colours are amber and black shirts with black shorts and socks
