About Us

History

The Club was founded in 1932 and played in the Public School Old Boys Football Association competition from its inception until this Association became the Tasmanian Amateur Football League (Southern Division) in 1947. We remained a member of the TAFL until 1986 when the 7 clubs which formed the Old Scholars division of the TAFL (S/D) broke away to form the Old Scholars Football Association.

The TAFL had set up 2 divisions (District & Old Scholars) in 1981 with the Premier of each division meeting to determine the Southern Premier.
