Formed in 1935, Old Scotch Collegians was a significant contributor to the amateur game in northern Tasmania for many years. In terms of on-field success, the 1970s and 1980s proved especially productive, with all but one of the club’s first seven senior grade premierships being won during those decades. The exception was the club’s breakthrough premiership, won in 1957 by means of a 9.8 (62) to 7.11 (53) grand final defeat of Old Launcestonians. Old Scotch also won the now defunct state title twice, beating Claremont in both 1976 and 1980 by 2 and 71 points respectively. The club’s most recent senior grade flag was captured in 2009 in the NTFA’s second division.
