It may not have achieved much in the way of premiership success but Nunawading has been an important member of the Eastern Football League since the competition’s formation, as the Eastern Districts Football League, in 1962. Its sole senior grade flag to date was achieved in division four exactly forty years later. The Lions have also claimed two reserve grade and two thirds premierships.\n\nPrior to becoming a foundation club in the EDFL Nunawading had competed in the Eastern Suburbs Football League, mainly in B Grade in which it enjoyed premiership successes in 1938 and 1955. The club was originally known as Tunstall, altering it to Nunawading when the name of the district changed at the end of world war two.\n\nThe 2009 season saw the Lions competing in division three, with the seniors winning 6 of their 18 home and away matches to finish eighth (of ten) and the reserves coming seventh with a 7-11 win/loss record.
