The original Jarrow club were formed in 1894 after Jarrow Rangers folded.[1] Having initially been accepted into the Tyneside League, the new club successfully applied to join the Northern Alliance for the 1894–95 season.[2] Their first match on 22 August was a friendly against Bill Quay Albion, with Jarrow winning 3–0.[1] The club were Northern Alliance runners-up in 1897–98 and won the league the following season,[2] also reaching the first round of the FA Cup; drawn away to First Division club Everton, they lost 3–1.[3] In 1899–1900 they reached the first round again, losing 2–0 at home to Millwall Athletic in front of a crowd that reached 8,000.[1][3] The season also saw them win the Durham Challenge Cup, beating Sunderland 'A' 1–0 in the final.[1] Having turned amateur in 1901, Jarrow left the Northern Alliance at the end of the 1901–02 season and subsequently disbanded.[1] Although the club was reformed and rejoined the Northern Alliance in 1903, they resigned from the league in March 1909 with their record expunged.[2]

At the start of the following season a club named Jarrow Croft joined the North Eastern League.[4] Croft had previously played in the South Shields Junior League and the Northern Amateur League, before winning the Newcastle Amateur League in 1909–10.[1] The club were renamed Jarrow in 1912,[5] and for the first two years of World War I they played in the North Eastern League–Tyneside Combination. After the war the club were renamed Palmers Jarrow, before reverting to simply Jarrow in March 1920.[1] They finished bottom of the North Eastern League in 1923–24, and moved to Campbell Park in Hebburn the following season; plans to rename themselves Jarrow and Hebburn were dropped after the Durham FA refused permission.[1] In 1930–31 another FA Cup first round appearance ended in a 1–0 defeat at Third Division North club Crewe Alexandra.[3]

Jarrow won the Durham Challenge Cup for a second time in 1932–33, beating Spennymoor United 2–1 in the final.[1] They retained the trophy the following season with a 1–0 win over Cockfield in the final and were also North Eastern League runners-up.[6] The loss of their Campbell Park ground to the army in March 1939 led to the club resigning from the league at the end of the 1938–39 season.[1][6] After World War II Jarrow rejoined the Northern Alliance, but they withdrew from the league during the 1948–49 season after 23 matches.[7] They dropped into the Northern Combination and subsequently disappeared.[1]

The club was reformed in 1980.[8] They joined Division Two of the Wearside League in 1991 and a third-place finish in 1992–93 saw them promoted to Division One.[9] However, they finished bottom of Division One the following season and were relegated back to Division Two.[9] The league was reduced to a single division in 1996 and the club finished bottom of the league in 1996–97. A second division was readded in 1998 and Jarrow finished bottom of Division One in 1999–2000,[9] but avoided relegation as the league was reduced to a single division again.[10] In 2007–08 Jarrow were Wearside League runners-up. They won the league in 2016–17, earning promotion to Division Two of the Northern League
