Yarram’s long, illustrious history has seen the club participate in five different competitions and claim at least fourteen senior grade premierships. The club’s pedigree is further enhanced by the consistency of its record, with its flag winning seasons having occurred at regular intervals throughout its twelve decade existence.\n\nThe Demons were founder members in 1946 of the Alberton Football League, and after a slow start gradually began to build in strength, contesting three successive preliminary finals between 1949 and 1951. The breakthrough senior grade premiership finally arrived in 1954 when Yarram overcame the grand final challenge of Fish Creek.\n\nThe 1970s proved a most productive decade with the Demons reaching four grand finals for two wins. The 1986 flag was one of the most memorable as the side overcame the setback of a second semi final loss to Devon to trounce the same opposition by 64 points a fortnight later in the ‘big one’.\n\nYarram has been a force to contend with of late with the side claiming a premiership in 2007 and finishing second a year later.
