After Cape Verdean independence, Garridos celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1998. Later, Garridos would be placed in the Santiago Island League North Zone in 2001 when the championships split into two zones, the club played at Cumbém, then at Pedra Bajedo. They remain until the early 2010s, Garridos switched to the South Zone along with other clubs in the municipality and started playing at Estádio da Várzea. The club in the 2013–14 season played in the second division and now they played for the next three seasons in the premier division. The club finished 7th with 19 points in the 2014/15 season and scored 12 goals, in the 2015/16 season, the club finished 10th now just outside the relegation zone with 18 points and had 5 wins and 14 losses, Garridos scored 27 goals which was the fifth highest in the championship. In week 20, Os Garridos defeated the weak Delta at the time was about to be relegated. As both Os Garridos and Varanda had no further wins for the remaining two weeks, Varanda had 16 points, it saved Os Garridos from being relegated into the Second Division. Garridos did not had a single win in the 2016-17 season until January 28 after defeating Bairro (also known as ADESBA) 0-1, currently as of the 20th round, the club has 6 points and is 11th but inside the relegation zone which has since the third round, Garridos had a final chance to remain in the Premier Division at the 21st round, Garridos kept their possible chance after their second win over Praia's top three Travadores, the score being 0-7, it made it the highest scoring match in seasons for the club and the region's second behind Boavista's 8-0 earlier who defeated this club, their high goal scoring was their revenge over Garridos' massive 8-0 loss to Boavista earlier, a top three club of the city and Southern Santiago, lastly they defeated ADESBA. The final match of the season was a goal draw with Celtic Praia, the point difference was one behind Eugénio Lima and Garridos was finally relegated and will spend the following season in the Second Division. Garridos conceded 45 goals, in the final rounds, they conceded the most up to the 22nd round and became second ahead of Travadores and behind Vitória.
In the 2017 regional cup, the club advanced into the semis and defeated Celtic Praia 4-0 on 13 April and the club advanced into the finals and made a goal draw with Sporting Praia on May 7 which led into the penalty shootout and lost to Sporting. Garridos made their best position as a finalist. As Sporting was also champions on April 9, Garridos had unlocked its entry into the 2017 regional super cup for the first and only time, their qualification status was as runner-up in the cup final, Garridos was underestimated as the club lost the match to Sporting Praia on October 28.
In the following season, a possibility that the club will not be playing at Várzea, they may play at Calabaceira or at Ponta d'Água being closer to São Domingos.
Garridos has a small field in the area of São Domingos, they also play in the area of Calabaceira. Garridos's matches are played at Estádio da Várzea, a multi-use stadium in Praia, Cape Verde. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium holds 8,000. Its address is Caixa Postal 234. The stadium has seat rows in the left and right sides and a small hill and a plateau lies to the west. The stadium is home to the three best football clubs in Cape Verde and the island's six best, Sporting. CD Travadores, Boavista FC, Académica, Desportivo and Vitória, all in the Santiago South Championships.
Garridos did not used it between 1999 and 2010 when they were with the North Zone of Santiago.
The club also practices at the stadium, at Complexo Desportivo Adega in Achada Grande Tras and in São Domingos including the one near São Domingos and another at Ribeira da Praia Formosa around Milho Branco. In the following season, Garridos will play at Calabaceira and probably also play at Ponta d'Àgua so Garridos can be closer to São Domingos which the club is based. The field at nearby Nora located near São Domingos has been recently added artificial turf and will possibly add stadium seats. That portion is now the development of becoming the home field of Garridos.
