Hyde Park Football Club was admitted to the South Australian Amateur Football League in 1960 and won an A3 Grade premiership on debut. The following year the club made it two flags in succession when it went top in A2 Grade. After that, there was a perhaps inevitable decline, and when the Rams next achieved premiership success in 1965 it came following three relegations and was therefore in A4 Grade.
The club’s 1965 A4 Grade flag was its last as Hyde Park. Since 1968 the club has been known as Glenunga, and has added another two senior grade premierships, one in A4 Grade and one in A2 Grade. However, the highlight of the Rams’ existence to date was their noteworthy achievement in reaching an A1 Grade grand final in 1978, albeit that it ended in defeat at the hands of Payneham.
The 2008 season saw Glenunga competing in division six, which was formerly known as A6 Grade. Both seniors and reserves had indifferent seasons, the former winning 5 and drawing 1 out of 18 home and away matches to finish seventh (of ten), and the latter ending up one place lower on the ladder after winning just 4 games for the year.
