1992-1999 Essex Senior League
1999-2004 Isthmian League

2006-2012 Isthmian League

Steady development prepared the club for senior Isthmian football and an immediate runners up finish in Division Three augered well for the future. Unfortunately, by the time of the non-league restructuring of leagues in 2004, Rovers were finding Isthmian football difficult and a move across to The Southern League was welcomed.

Two seasons later Great Wakering Rovers were back in the Isthmian Division One North, but the sixth season brought relegation and Rovers dropped down determined to bounce back quickly from The Essex Senior League.
