AFC Totton, known as The Stags, was established in 1974/75 from the merger of Totton FC and Totton Athletic. The club’s early years in the Hampshire League Division Two led to a promotion to Division One in 1979/80. A landmark season in 1981/82 under Trevor Parker brought multiple trophies, including the Hampshire League Division One title. Success continued in the 1980s and 1990s, with highlights including two Hampshire League Division One Championships and the Wessex League Cup.

The 2000s marked a period of significant achievements, with the Stags reaching the FA Vase final at Wembley in 2006/07 and winning the Wessex Premier League in 2007/08, which led to their promotion to the Southern League. Under Stuart Ritchie, they won the Hampshire Senior Cup in 2009/10 and 2010/11, also achieving promotion to the Southern Premier Division and reaching the FA Cup 2nd Round in 2010/11.

Recently, AFC Totton won the Southampton Senior Cup in 2021/22 and were crowned Southern League Division One South Champions in 2022/23 under Jimmy Ball. This success was complemented by winning the Southern League Division One Champion of Champions match and retaining the SDFA Southampton Saturday Senior Cup, completing an impressive treble season.
