South Australian Amateur Football League (SAAFL) since 1961
Green and white
Seaton Ramblers competed in the West Torrens District Football Association between 1958 and 1960 before commencing in the South Australian Amateur Football League’s A3 Grade competition in 1961. The club made its mark early with some slashing wins, capped by a 48.35 (323) to 4.2 (26) mauling of Colonel Light Gardens in August. Rover Vin Camporeale contributed no fewer than 26 of his teams goals. Hardly surprisingly, the Ramblers comfortably qualified for the finals and then swept their way to the premiership with wins over Teachers College B in both the second semi final and the grand final.\n\nThe highlight of Seaton Ramblers’ time in the SAAFL came with its A1 premiership victory in 1973. Opposed in the grand final by Payneham the Ramblers emerged a comfortable 26 points to the good, 14.8 (92) to 10.6 (66). It was the club’s second A1 Grade grand final appearance following a loss to Teachers College a couple of years earlier. Since 1973 the Ramblers have generally fluctuated between the SAAFL’s top two divisions although they also spent a brief time in A3 Grade, finally escaping in 1990 on the strength of a 16.15 (111) to 8.12 (60) grand final defeat of Kenilworth.
