The club was founded by village resident Joe (Pepe) Lawrence in early 2019. Prior to this, he had been living in Tunja, Colombia (South America) where he founded Hammers Boyacá, an amateur football club comprising mostly University students. This experience was the driving force behind setting up Tempsford FC upon his return to the village of his birth. Considering the last time the village had played competitive football was in the late 1970's, the idea was pitched to the village's Parish Council (and approved) for their backing to help revive the community spirit of that bygone period, and to create an asset the village could be proud of. Time and time again, football has a habit of bringing people together from different walks of life, and so when an advert to recruit players was posted in several Facebook groups in the local area in March 2019 around 14 men turned up to the very first training session at Station Road, Tempsford. The club went on to win its first ever game in April of that year, and then from September competed in the BDSFL (Bedford and District Sunday Football League). A lot has changed since then, and the club has gone from strength to strength. The committee is an integral part of the club's structure and meets together on a monthly basis to make important decisions. Its members have risen from three in 2019 to six at the current time of writing and comprises the Chairman - Joe Lawrence, the Manager & Club Secretary - Craig Spindler, the Treasurer - Anthony Solazzo, the Disciplinary Officer - Richard Blackburn, the Club Captain - Conor Seaman and the Events Organiser - Liam Watts. Craig Spindler was appointed as manager towards the latter part of 2019 and the club has enjoyed much success under his stewardship - narrowly missing out on a cup final via a penalty shootout defeat in the semi final during the club's first ever season. He also runs the club's social media accounts as well as the many secretarial duties.
