The club was founded in June 2014 after local side Govillon changed their name following a move to Pen-Y-Pound after former club Abergavenny Thursdays folded.
The new club was entered into the Gwent County League First Division for the 2014-15 season. They finished the season as champions of that division after going the entire league campaign unbeaten . This earned the club a place in the Third Division of the Welsh Football League. Success continued during the 2015/16 season as the club won promotion to the Second Division after finishing second in the league. The club also won the FAW trophy following a 1-0 victory over Sully Sports. The 2016/17 saw Abergavenny finish 11th in the Second division but the end of the season saw long time servant and Manager Steve “Butch” Morgan leave the club after 20 years of involvement at Govillon and Abergavenny.
The long-term goal of the club is a place in the Welsh Premier League. A position last held by the old Abergavenny club during the 1992-93 season, when the League of Wales was first formed
