The Raiders competed initially in the Hills Football League's top tier Central Division but they tended to struggle. At the conclusion of the 2014 season they were relegated to the Country Division (later renamed Division Two) in which they have prospered. They qualified for grand finals in both 2015 and 2016, losing to Kersbrook by 27 points in the former year and coming from behind to down Nairne Bremer by 3 points in the latter. The 2017 season saw them finish second after the minor round and they began their finals campaign well with a 10.12 (72) to 10.5 (65) qualifying final defeat of Ironbank Cherry Gardens. However, the wheels then dropped off with losses in consecutive weeks to Nairne Bremer and, in a re-match, Ironbank Cherry Gardens, leaving the Raiders to occupy third place, which is also where they ended up a year later following another preliminary final defeat at the hands of the Thunderers. The ensuing couple of seasons brought generally mediocre performances which produced fifth and sixth place finishes.
