History[edit]

Glenorchy Croatia was born in 1957 and experienced almost immediate success, winning the state title for the first time in 1963. They experienced their best success in the 1970s, winning three titles, before having a league lull in the 1980s. However, re-branded as the Glenorchy Knights, they have slowly established a new sense of self, culminating in winning the State Championship for the first time in 13 years in 2005, and narrowly missing out on back to back state titles by losing a penalty shoot-out to Somerset in 2006.

In 2010, Glenorchy Knights finished in 3rd Position in the Forestry Tasmania Southern Premier League.
