The Kowree-Naracoorte-Tatiara Football League is an Australian rules football competition based in the Limestone Coast region of South Australia, Australia. It is an affiliated member of the South Australian National Football League. One unusual aspect of the league is that it includes clubs from both South Australia and Victoria.

History[edit]

Kowree-Naracoorte FL[edit]

This league was founded in 1937 when two competitions joined to create the Kowree-Naracoorte Football League. Towns of Apsley and Edenhope from the Shire of Kowree in Victoria got together with teams from Kybybolite, Frances and Naracoorte (North Naracoorte and South Naracoorte). After World War 2 Lucindale was admitted, then the two Naracoorte clubs merged to form Naracoorte, and Frances merged with Minimay to form Border Districts. The six team competition was later joined in the 1960s by Kingston and Padthaway. Penola joined from the Western Border Football League in 1988.

Tatiara FL[edit]

Tatiara FL had its origins in 1911. Teams from Mundulla, Bordertown, Wolseley and Servicetown were later joined by Kaniva, Lillimur and Federals.

Kaniva and Federals merged to form Kaniva & Districts in 1948, and Serviceton and Lillimur merged to form Leeor in 1950. Tintinara replaced Wolseley and the six team competition remain stable from the mid-1950s until 1991.

In 1992 Tintinara withdrew and merged with Border Downs reducing the league to five clubs; this was thought as unworkable, therefore a league merger was sought.

Kowree-Naracoorte-Tatiara Football League[edit]

In 1993 the Kowree-Naracoorte Football League and the Tatiara Football League merged to form the Kowree-Naracoorte-Tatiara Football League. The founding clubs were Apsley, Border Districts, Bordertown, Edenhope, Kaniva & Districts, Keith, Kingston, Kybybolite, Leeor, Lucindale, Mundulla, Naracoorte, Padthaway and Penola.

Kaniva & Districts and Leeor merged in 1997 to form Kaniva Leeor United.

Apsley and Edenhope in 1999 merged to form Edenhope-Apsley and in 2006 moved to the Horsham & District Football League.
