On 11 May 2019, Clapton Community won the Middlesex County League Division One (Central and East), gaining promotion to the Premier Division, after a 3–0 win against FC Roast. Clapton Community entered the FA Vase for the first time in 2019–20.In June 2019, the club announced the formation of a women's team with the former AFC Stoke Newington first team coming under the Clapton CFC banner. The women's team will compete in Division One of the Greater London Women's Football League in the 2019–20 season.

The men's team currently groundshare with Walthamstow at Wadham Lodge, after spending their first season at an adjacent ground, nicknamed by fans as the 'Stray Dog' after Clapton FC's home ground The Old Spotted Dog.
