The following year the club finished runners-up in Division 1 - and followed this up again with another second place finish in 2005–06. In the 2008–09 season they improved on this, winning promotion to the Welsh Football League Division Three as champions. In 2010–11 the club finished as runner-up, winning promotion to the Welsh Football League Division Two.
In the 2011–12 season the club changed its name to Tata Steel F.C. following the purchase of the company by Tata Steel.
