The club began its current incarnation having reached to upper age group in the Portsmouth Junior league, a group of players decided to continue playing as Portsmouth Civic Service Reserves. Gradually most of the players moved up to the first team and by 1991 the side had risen from Portsmouth League to Hampshire League division one on the back of three successive promotions.
The clubs league success was matched in cup competitions with Portsmouth Senior Cup wins in 1991 and 1992, and Hampshire Intermediate Cup victories in 1992 and 1993.
After several seasons in the upper reaches of the Hampshire League, it became apparent that the club would have to move away from their home at Copnor Road if they were to progress. After scouting the city, the club agreed a lease on the old Moneyfields Sports Ground in Copnor, and so in 1994 it moved to its current ground and became part of the club whose name they now carry.
The division one years were particularly successful and under the management of George Wain and Mickey Gee, Moneyfields never finished lower that sixth and clinched the 1996/97 league championship by 15 points.
Success on the field was matched by extensive ground developments, thanks to a national lottery sports fund grant and a lot of sweat blood tears and hard work from voluntary work of the players and those involved with them. New changing rooms, offices and a floodlit all weather pitch were constructed as part of the scheme to bring the facilities up to Wessex League Standard.
