Since the Mallee Football League was established in 1997 Beulah, which was a foundation member, has been the competition’s most successful senior grade side with four premierships from seven grand final appearances. Most recently, the Blues claimed a hat trick of flags between 2003 and 2005, trouncing Manangatang, Sea Lake Nandaly and Woomelang Lascelles in the grand finals by an average margin of 46 points.
Beulah’s pedigree of success stretches back a lot further, though. Formed in 1892, the club claimed its first premiership in 1902 in the Mallee Football Association, which commenced that season. A second flag came Beulah’s way in 1910.
During the 1920s Beulah contested four MFA grand finals, but lost them all. In 1932 the club transferred to the competition that would become its long term home, the newly established Southern Mallee Football Association (renamed the Southern Mallee Football League after the war). The side qualified for the grand final in its debut season, but lost to Brim. It made amends the following year, however, with an 11.14 (80) to 8.4 (52) grand final triumph over Rosebury.
After world war two Beulah enjoyed unrivalled success in the SMFL claiming a total of thirteen senior grade premierships between 1947 and 1985. This included a competition record four flags in succession between 1953 and 1956.
Since winning the 2005 MFL premiership the Blues have endured mixed fortunes, finishing third in 2006, second from last in 2007, and third once more in 2008.
