Originally called the Queens Park Football Club, it was renamed the Canning District Football Club in 1926 to coincide with the building of the Canning Town Hall.

At the end of the 2000 football season, the Vic Park-South Perth Football Club merged with the Canning Football Club.

Based at Wyong Oval in Bentley, the now Canning South Perth Football Club services Bentley, Cannington, St James, Wilson, Victoria Park and South Perth.

The Tigers have about 110 players in three senior teams and one colts team.

Club president Jeff Poultney said the club was looking forward to bouncing back from a disappointing 2014 campaign with hopes to compete in the 2015 finals.

�The club will celebrate its milestone in July with a past players day and guest speaker,� Mr Poultney said.

�The club will also wear the original jumper design throughout the year.�

Mr Poultney named some of the best players to come out of the club as John (Digger) Noble, John Worth, Cecil Treasure, Des Fogarty and Robert Hayward.
