Brief history[edit]

The North Eastern Football League was formed in 1946. The founding clubs included Booborowie, Burra, Hallett, Leighton and Spalding.

Later on clubs included Clare Football Club (was split into North and South Clare in 1950), Stanley Flat Football Club, Brinkworth / Yacka Football Club, Gulnare / Redhill Football Club).

Prior to the 2010 Season, after much speculation, the Eudunda Football Club merged with the Robertstown Football Club from the recently defunct Mid Murray Football Association to become the Southern Saints.[2] So far, the merger has not been as promising as expected, with the senior side winless in 2010.
