The club was established in 1946 by Bert Salmon as Bowers United and initially played in the Thurrock and Thameside Combination. The club won the league in 1958–59, and became founder members of the Essex Olympian League in 1966, before moving up to the Essex Senior League in 1974. In 1980–81 the club won the league, and the following season saw them win the League Challenge Cup. They won the Harry Fisher Trophy in 1991–92, before going on to win the league and challenge cup double in 1998–99.

In 2004 Bowers United absorbed Pitsea Football Club, adopting their current name. Pitsea had played in the Vange & District Sunday League and the Basildon Sunday League, winning the league treble in 1994–95 and 1995–96, and the league and cup double in 1996–97. In 2014–15 the club won the Challenge Cup for a third time. The following season saw them win the league, earning promotion to Division One North of the Isthmian League. They also reached the semi-finals of the FA Vase, losing 4–3 on aggregate to eventual winners Morpeth Town.

The 2017–18 season saw Bowers & Pitsea finish third in the renamed North Division, qualifying for the promotion play-offs. However, they were beaten 2–0 by Canvey Island in the semi-finals. The following season the club were North Division champions, earning promotion to the Premier Division.

Stadium or Home

The club were originally based at what later became Pitsea Market, before moving to Gun Meadow. When the A13 was built, the Gun Meadow ground was subject to a compulsory purchase order, resulting in the club moving to its current home on Crown Avenue. The site was purchased from the Basildon Development Corporation, as well as a prefabricated building that became the club's dressing rooms. It was officially opened with a friendly match against Ex-Tottenham Hotspur All-Star team. A seated stand was built on one side of the pitch, with the original bench seating later replaced with red tip-up seats. A covered standing area was erected next to the seated stand.

The ground currently has a capacity of 2,000, of which 200 is seated and 1,000 covered.
