Brief history[edit]

The current Yorke Peninsula Football League developed over a number of years and involved the gradual amalgamation of the Yorke Valley Football Association, Yorke Peninsula Football Association, and Southern Yorke Peninsula Football League.

Yorke Peninsula Football Association[edit]

The Yorke Peninsula Football Association was formed in 1888.

The founding clubs were:

  • Cross Roads
  • Moonta
  • Moonta Mines
  • Moonta Young Turks
  • Wallaroo
  • Wallaroo Young Turks (renamed from Kadina).

The final year of the Yorke Peninsula Football Association was in 1960 when the competing clubs were:

  • Kadina,
  • Moonta,
  • Paskeville
  • Wallaroo

These clubs then joined the Yorke Valley Football Association in 1961.

Southern Yorke Peninsula Football League[edit]

The Southern Yorke Peninsula Football League was formed in 1930. The founding clubs were:

In 1919 the Southern Yorke Peninsula Football Association and the Central Yorke Peninsula Football Association merged to form the Central And Southern Yorke Peninsula Association. This League went into recess during World War II and in 1945 the Southern Yorke Peninsula Football Association was reformed. The Southern Yorke Peninsula Football Association was renamed as the Southern Yorke Peninsula Football League in 1957.

At the end of the 1993 season, after years of diminishing player numbers, the six remaining clubs were amalgamated into two new clubs - Curramulka, Minlaton and Stansbury as the CMS Crows, and Yorketown, Edithburgh and Western United as the Southern Eagles - and the two resulting clubs joined the YVFL for the 1994 season.

Yorke Valley FA[edit]

The Yorke Valley Football Association was formed in 1930.

The Yorke Valley Football Association disbanded in 1936, but was reformed in 1945. In 1961 the Association absorbed the clubs from the Yorke Peninsula Football Association (see above). The Association changed its name to Yorke Valley Football League in 1963. In 1994 the Yorke Valley Football League absorbed the Southern Yorke Peninsula (see above). At that time the participating clubs were:

In 1996, the YVFL changed its name to the current title.

At the end of the 1996 season the Central Yorke Football Club was formed from a merger between Arthurton and Maitland.
