The club played in Division 1 from 1958 to 1961.

From 1997–2002, the club played at the fourth level of French football, the Championnat de France Amateur but were relegated after finishing 14th in their group. At the end of the 2006–07 season, the team suffered a forced relegation to the Division d'honneur (6th tier in the French football league system); the club won the Centre-Ouest (Center-West) Group of the Division d'honneur in 2010–11 season and was promoted to Championnat de France amateur 2.

In 2017 the club won promotion to the new fourth level Championnat National 2, but despite finishing 12th in their group in 2017–18 they were relegated administratively back to the fifth level after being placed into administration during the season.[1] At the end of the 2018–19 season they were relegated administratively again to the Regional league due to not being in compliance with the financial rules of the competition.[2]
