Tain Thistle were first formed in 1997. The club concept (proposed by Brian MacAngus and Ronnie Mackie, bakers at Tain's Grants Bakery at the time) was based on a desire to have a team for the town's younger, unestablished players to compete during the summer months while Tain's senior team, Tain St Duthus, competed during the winter as members of the North Caledonian League. Historically, Tain had typically been represented in the amateur leagues by various combinations, but the latest of its teams had fallen into abeyance by the mid 1990s and in 1997, the "Jags" stepped in to fill the void. The name of "Tain Thistle" was chosen by MacAngus when the team registered for the Ross-shire Welfare league in 1997, after an initial suggestion of "Cabarfeidh Thistle" was rejected.
