The club was established in 1992 as a merger of Hinckley of the Midland Combination Premier Division and Barwell Athletic of the Leicestershire Senior League Premier Division; the new club took Hinckley’s place in the Midland Combination.
In 1994 Barwell were founder members of the Midland Alliance. They won the Leicestershire and Rutland Senior Cup in 1996–97 and the League Cup in 2005–06, beating Leamington 3–1 in the final. After finishing as runners-up in 2008–09, they won the league the following season, earning promotion to Division One South of the Northern Premier League. Their first season in the division saw them win the title, earning promotion to step three of the National League System. Instead of playing in the Northern Premier League’s Premier Division, the club were moved to the Premier Division of the Southern League. However, two seasons later, they were transferred back to the Northern Premier League. In 2015–16 Barwell reached the first round of the FA Cup for the first time, losing 2–0 at home to Welling United.
