The Romans were founded during the week of Super Bowl XX at the Handbridge College, and played their first game of full kitted football in September of that year, beating the Rotherham Redskins 38-25.[2]

They spent their formative years in the Budweiser League, but did not achieve much success and in the late 1980's, moved to the British National Gridiron League, where they made their first play off appearance in 1989 and made them again in 1994.[3]

In the 1995 and 1996 seasons, the Romans relocated to Wrexham, Wales, achieving mixed success. In 2001, they changed their to the Cheshire Romans, before reverting to the Chester Romans in 2002.[4]

In 2014, former NFL player and Sky Sports pundit Cecil Martin held a training session with the Romans.[5] 2015 saw a league realignment,[6] and the Romans were placed in the Division 1 NFC South division, where they lost their opening game to the Nottingham Caesars 28-23.[7]
