The club was established by W.M. Pethybridge and C.H. Bray in 1889.[2] After amalgamating with a team from the local barracks in 1900, they started playing in white shirts, gaining the nickname “the Lilywhites”.[3] They won the Bodmin & District (Senior) League in 1922–23, and in 1925 the colour of the club’s home shirts was changed to amber.[2] They won the league again in 1926–27 and were runners-up in 1947–48.[2]

In 1953 Bodmin joined the South Western League, where they played for nine seasons,[3] before leaving at the end of the 1961–62 season to play in the East Cornwall Premier League.[2] They rejoined the South Western League in 1969, and were runners-up in 1976–77.[3] They won the league for the first time in 1990–91, and were champions again in 1993–94. They won the Cornwall Senior Cup for the first time in 1998–99, beating Millbrook 2–1 in the final. After finishing as runners-up twice in a row, they won the league for a third time in 2005–06.[3]

In 2007 the club were founder members of the South West Peninsula League, and were placed in the Premier Division; they went on to win the league and the League Cup in both of its first two seasons. They finished as runners-up in 2009–10 and 2010–11, winning the Senior Cup in both seasons, beating Camelford 3–1 in the 2010 final and St Austell 3–2 in 2011.[4] The 2011–12 season saw them win the league, the League Cup and the Senior Cup, beating Saltash United 3–2 in the final. They repeated the feat in 2012–13, with Helston Athletic beaten 4–3 after extra time in the Senior Cup final.[5] A fifth league title was won in 2015–16,[3] with the club also winning the League Cup for a fifth time and the Senior Cup for a sixth time with a 7–0 win over Godolphin Athletic in the final.[6]

Following league reorganisation at the end of the 2018–19 season, Bodmin were placed in the Premier Division West.
