1996–2000Edit

The history and achievements of Osotspa go hand in hand with the coach Chatchai Paholpat, who held the position of manager at the club between 1996 and 2007. All achievements of the association were achieved under his leadership.[citation needed] The club participated in the 1996–97 season in the first edition of the Thai League T1.

They finished second in this league and fought in the play-offs for promotion to the Royal Police United from the first division. After the round of matches, Osotspa defeated Police and the club returned to the top league. Since their re-emergence in 1997, the club has become an integral part of the Premier League. In 1999 they reached the final of the Thai FA Cup collect, but were beaten 2–1 by Bangkok Bank at Supachalasai Stadium.[4]

The club achieved respectable fourth and eighth-place finishes in the following seasons of the league. 2002 marked the most successful season in the club's history; Osotspa finished runners-up in the league, qualified for the AFC Champions League and won for the first time the Queen's Cup.[5]

In the 2002–03 AFC Champions League season, Osotspa achieved a 7–4 aggregate victory over the Churchill Brothers to qualify for the competition proper.[6] However, Osotspa struggled in the group stages, and were eliminated with zero points from three games and a goal difference of 1:20.
