The club's crest uses the colours green, red and yellow, which represent the colours of the two merged teams. For 2009–10 the home colours were the traditional Briton Ferry quartered red and green shirt, green shorts and red socks. The away colours were the traditional Llansawel yellow shirt, black shorts and hooped yellow and black socks.[3]



During September 2008 representatives of Briton Ferry Athletic and Llansawel entered into discussion about the possibility of merging the two clubs. After a lengthy period of consideration, it was announced on 28 April 2009 that the two clubs had merged to form Briton Ferry Llansawel.

They were to play their first season in Welsh Football League Third Division, replacing Briton Ferry Athletic. South Gower replaced Llansawel after they applied for membership to the league.[4]

The club was promoted to the Cymru Premier for the first time in the club's history after winning the 2023–24 Cymru South.
