National Soccer League[edit]

After winning New South Wales Division 1 in 1984, Inter Monaro entered the NSL for the 1985 season, replacing Melita Eagles in the Northern Conference. In their first season they finished 7th, two points outside of a finals position and one place below local rivals Canberra City who finished 6th. In 1985 National League Cup, Inter defeated West Woden 9-1 in the first round before being eliminated in the second round by Canberra 1-0.

The second season in the NSL was less successful. In the 1986 National League Cup, they were eliminated by Canberra City again, losing 2-1 in the first round. Inter finished bottom of the table with only three wins from 22 games, and a restructure of the national competition for the 1987 season cutting back to 13 teams saw the club relegated back to the NSW First Division.
