Birregurra played its first match in June 1883, but the club did not really get going in an organised, competitive sense until after the first world war. Between the wars the Saints competed at various times in at least three different competitions, and is known to have claimed at least one premiership. In 1946 Birregurra affiliated with the Polwarth Football League where it spent precisely twenty seasons, winning a premiership in 1955, and losing a low scoring grand final to Beeac the following year.
After spending the 1966 season in recess the Saints were admitted to the Colac and District Football League where they continue to compete to this day. It took them twenty seasons to break through for a flag, but having done so they embarked on the most successful decade in their history, claiming further senior grade premierships in 1990 and 1994.
In recent seasons, Birregurra’s seniors have discernibly, if slowly, improved as they finished last without a win in 2004, second from last in 2005, eighth (of eleven) in 2006, sixth (of eleven) in 2007, and fourth in 2008 after ending the home and away rounds in third place with a commendable 14-4 record.
Kersbrook later emulated Birdwood’s feat by claiming a sixth country division flag in 2008.
