The club is currently a member of the Scottish Lowland League after winning the East of Scotland Premier Division in the 2019/20 season.
Bo’ness United (www.bonessunitedfc.co.uk) have won the Scottish Junior Cup on three occasions, in 1948, 1976 and 1984.
Nicknamed the BU's, they were formed in 1945, at the end of the Second World War when Bo'ness, a club that had played in the senior ranks, being a member of the Scottish Football League from 1921 to 1932, merged with the Junior club Bo'ness Cadora.
Athletic (www.bonessathletic.com) started out as Linlithgow Thistle Amateur Football Club in 2001.
Following a successful spell in age group (U21 and U24) football, the Thistle moved into the Lothian & Edinburgh Amateur Football Association (LEAFA). A ten-year spell in LEAFA saw consecutive league titles, league cups and player representatives for LEAFA Select and internationals with the Scotland Amateur Football Association.
In 2019, the Thistle moved home to Newtown Park and rebranded as Bo’ness United Junior FC.
In 2021, with an exodus of the East Region Junior clubs to the East of Scotland Football League, Bo’ness United JFC decided to join the EOSFL and rebranded to form Bo’ness Athletic Football Club to continue the football journey and development.
