The club reaches second division headed by Bashir Jerbi and the presidency of Néji Mehiri but can not stay there. To returne again from 1970 to 1985 before sinking to the fourth and even fifth division. Successive presidents - Ali Goulli, Hédi Lahouar, Moncef Laatiri, Hammadi Halloul and Raouf Ghadhab - in turn contribute to the progress and the club climbed to CLP-1 in 2006 for the first time in its history. But the club was relegated from the CLP-1 to the CLP-2 in 2007, this first experience is not successful and after that demotion, it is rapidly CLP-1 again at the end of the 2007-08 season thanks to the efforts of its President Hédi Lahouar who returned after two terms in the Tunisian Football Federation.
