Diamond Valley Football League split into two divisions for the 1981 season with the bottom four clubs at end of 1980 season and four other clubs affiliating from other competitions forming the lower tier.

Whilst always competitive, the club has not been consistently strong, the club won its only premiership the 1987 DVFL second division against Reservoir Lakeside. The club declined promotion to the first division due to uncertainty about player strength and financial stability. It is the only DVFL club to ever refuse a promotion.
