History

In 2012 the club was set up with the intention to enter the FFSA State League in 2013, after the collapse of N.A.B. SC the club was granted permission to replace N.A.B. and participate in the FFSA State League. After discussions and consultation with Diego Pellegrini and his father Giuseppe Pellerini, and their acceptance to become involved and take the club to the next level. It was agreed the club would focus on junior development and provide an alternative pathway to juniors who were serious about playing soccer, and looking beyond the boundaries of South Australia to ply their passion in a more professional environment. It is hopeful that this will lead those players to a professional league in Asia, Europe or South America. On 10 May 2012 the club announced they would be conducting trials to fill squads for the 2013 season. The club after several years in State League 2, was able to gain promotion in State League 1 during the 2020 season. [1]
