Bemerton Heath Harlequins were formed in may 1989 with the amalgamation of three clubs, Bemerton Athletic, Moon F.C. and Bemerton Boys.
All three clubs were previously very successful in their own right and were a major force in local football.
Bemerton Athletic won the Wiltshire League on three occasions. Moon F.C. consistently won honours in the Salisbury and Andover Leagues and Bemerton Boys won several trophies in the Mid-Wilts League.
The Moon F.C. and Bemerton Athletic were by the end of 1988, looking for a fresh challenge therefore provisional talks of a merger were held with an entry into the Wessex League being the No.1 priority.
This seemed the only logical step due to the close proximity of the grounds and the fact their players played for both clubs on Saturdays and Sundays.
It is history now that the talks were successful, Bemerton Heath Harlequins were formed and now operate from a magnificent clubhouse which was built by self help.
Seven sides are now run, including four boys sides ranging from Under 10 to Under 16, and the Under 18 Youth Team. Since the merger, the men’s first XI have established themselves as a major force in the Wessex League.
Our Western Way ground continues to be improved, providing the best facilities in the area, without doubt. 1999 saw the opening of the Moon Room with spectacular viewing over the pitch, for Moon Room members and sponsors.
