Formed in 1903 as Trethomas Football Club, the pitch was bought by the miners who worked at the mines of Trethomas. According to local accounts, workers at the Bedwas Colliery purchased land in the nearby village of Trethomas – called the Llanbafon Drive Playing Field, as a field for recreation, including organised sport. Legend has it, the Llanfabon Drive Playing Field served as the home of the Trethomas Bluebirds for more than 100 years.   

Taking inspiration from Cardiff City, one of our founders then dubbed the club The Trethomas Bluebirds. The club entered the Gwent County League in 2003 and won promotion to Division Two as Champions in 2005-2006. Promotion to Division One followed and the club finished as runners up in the 2012/13 season. The club was then promoted to the Welsh Football League in 2015/16 for the first time.   



Our number one goal for the upcoming season is to be promoted into the Cymru South LeagueWe believe that our recent success and exciting signings have put us in the best position possible to win the league and gain promotion.  

As a club, we are on a mission to provide an inclusive and supportive football community, whilst striving for excellence both on and off the pitch. As a team, we hold ourselves to the highest standards and always represent our club’s values with integrity.  

 We believe that in order to play at our best, we must continue to embody the standards of the club and to remember that we are always stronger together. During the global Covid-19 pandemic, we wanted to give back to our community and the heroic NHS staff that were helping to prop our community up. And so, we set off on a mission to raise as much money as we could for the NHS by covering as much distance as possible in our one-hour daily exercise sessions that were permitted. We ended up raising over £1,700 for the NHS, smashing our original goal of £750. We are big believers in working together to achieve a shared goal – both on and off the pitch.  

 We believe that football is for everyone and the only way we can play properly; is by playing together. Together as one.
