The club was founded in 1989, and five years later joined the Hampshire League Division Three in 1994. Two years later they gained promotion to Division Two of the league, and changed their name to Tadley Town FC in 1999; whilst also joining Division One. By 2004, they had changed their name again to the current ‘Tadley Calleva’. They then entered the Wessex Football League Division Three, which was then later renamed to Division Two. A second placed finish saw them promoted to what was now known as Division One. By 2008 they had won the Division One title, but did not meet the ground requirements to be promoted.
At the end of 2020-21 season, the club were transferred to their current league, the Combined Counties League Premier Division North.
The Lions head into the weekend off the back of a 2-0 loss in the week away to Northwood FC. That result means that Wembley are out of the Middlesex Senior Challenge Cup. Despite this the Lions are placed 10th in the League, following a strong season so far. Tadley Calleva are placed 15th in the table, having played a game extra. Tadley held Edgware Town to a 1-1 draw away last week, and prior to that they were on the wrong side of a 2-1 scoreline away to Abbey Rangers. A win for the Lions could take them as high as 8th, depending on other results across the league.
