We have won the annual Hanlon Shield a record 18 times (5 times in the previous 9 seasons). This is an award presented by Football South to the top overall performing Football Club in Otago.
Our men’s 1st team competes in the Federation 7 Premier Divison and finished 3rd. We last won the men’s premier grade back in 2003. Our Women’s 1st team have won the Women’s Premier league 5 times in the past 5 seasons and are the current 2012 champions.
