Mandurah City – Our 50 Year History
Mandurah City Football Club played its inaugural competitive season in the South West Soccer League in 1970 and won the league in 1972.
The club then joined the Western Australian Amateur and Social Soccer Association (WASSA), where it remained until 2002. During this period in the amateurs, the club won the amateur top flight championship in 1995 under the guidance of coach Jim Mayers.
In 2002 the club left the amateur ranks and joined the Western Australian semi professional league and was crowned Division 1 champions in 2006, gaining promotion to the Football West Premier League. After being competitive for four seasons in the top flight, Football West restructured the Premier League and the club was relegated to allow the WA NTC development team to remain in the top flight.
Although we missed out in the inaugral years we did join the WANPL in the 2015 season under the stewardship of Director of Football Doug Hesketh and we look forward to challenging working towards WANPL again the future.
