The most successful phase in Dookie United’s three decade long history has come since the club commenced in the Picola and District Football League in 2006. After finishing 10th (of 15) on debut the sides enjoyed a superb 2007 season which saw them qualify for the finals in second place behind Katandra whom they then proceeded to defeat in both the second semi final, by eight points, and grand final, by 23 points. The side continued to perform strongly in 2008, finishing the home and away rounds in second place once more with an impressive 16-2 record. However, their finals form was disappointing, and their premiership ambitions were brought to a peremptory end at the preliminary final stage by eventual premiers Tungamah. Over the past decade the Dooks have have tended to perform quite strongly with the exception of a dire 2014 season which saw them slump to the wooden spoon. In 2018 they crossed to the Kyabram District Football League and qualified for the finals, ultimately coming fourth. A year later they slipped down the 15 team ladder to 10th.
