Perth Saints FC History

 

The Perth Saints Football Club was founded in late 1997. The club was built with a unique vision, the Saints wanted to create a special atmosphere within the club that made the players feel like they were part of a family – rather than simply contributing financially – where no-one is a stranger. This goal to set themselves apart from the rest of the local sporting clubs has been the cornerstone to the club’s growth ever since.

Staying true to this ethos, the club first entered the Western Australian Amateur and Social Soccer Association (WASSA) league in 1998 and has since enjoyed great success both on and off the field.
Over the years the club has gone from strength to strength, from humble beginnings with only one team representing the club, to the current membership of five teams competing at the top of their respective leagues.

The Perth Saints ethos has also helped the club attract a number of high-profile ex-professional and top-level players, including ex -Socceroo Captain and World Cup Player Robbie Dunne, ex-Socceroo and Bradford City Goalkeeper Robbie Zabica as well as other ex-overseas and local players, all of whom are admired and respected amongst Perth’s football community.

The privilege of attracting players of this calibre has seen the club gain a strong reputation and has instilled a winning mentality throughout the entire club.

Through their short history, the Saints ethos has also cultivated a great deal of success on the pitch, with the Club claiming the Social Division Two title in just their second season. Continued success saw the Saints climb their way up the divisions year after year, capturing the Division One title in 2000, before they went on to claim the double – winning both the Social Premier League and Social Cup in 2001.

This proved the perfect foundation on which the club could grow, and in 2002 the decision was made to introduce a second Perth Saints team to complement the first side. This decision paid instant dividends, as the Perth Saints made a clean sweep of their respective leagues winning the Social Premier Championship, Social South Division One Championship and the Social Cup.

The Saints have since gone from strength to strength, claiming the Social Division One title once more and adding to that two Metropolitan Cups, titles in both the Masters Premier League and South Division 2 as well as a Masters Cup in the following years. The club was also attracting a new, younger generation of players who also embraced the Saints philosophy and now make up much of the current Perth Saints Metropolitan League sides.

With the success of previous seasons, world-class facilities, top-level players and a tight-knit club atmosphere the Perth Saints are certainly set to enjoy much more success and growth in the future. And although the club is growing, and numbers are increasing, the Perth Saints still uphold the values and ideas with which the club was first established.

U14s div 2 had no subs vs a very physical Baldivis who had 2, huge effort & resilience by Saints, well done!

Well played the U13’s Div 1 team who dug deep & played a really gritty game to record a hard fought win. A great game to watch! 👍🏼

I liked the post, but don't like the scorelines 😥
