History

Established in 1931 [2] during the height of the Great Depression, following the merger of the Rokewood and Corindhap Football Clubs.

The Grasshoppers moved to the Western Plains FL in 1935 to join their nearest neighbour, Illabarook. The club had to wait until after WW2 to win its first flag. The club won nine flags including a hat-trick from 1992 to 1994. The Western Plains Football League merged with the Lexton Football League in 1999, forming the Lexton Plains Football League.

The Grasshoppers previously competed in the Lexton Plains Football League, but the league folded at the end of the 2010 season.
