Rangers History

The Kyneton District Soccer Club can trace its beginning to 1974 when a soccer club was formed by David Plant, George Johnson and Stan Hodgson. Known as Kyneton United, the teams played in the Bendigo Amateur Soccer League (BASL) and was based at Malmsbury with a red and white strip.

Over the following seasons the home ground changed to Kyneton High School (1977) then to Barkly Square (1978 - Present).

The prestigious year of 1979 saw the club win the Division 1 and Division 3 League Championships, the Division 1 and Reserves (now Division 2) Knockout Cup, the Division 1 League Cup and the Reserves 5 A-Side competition.

In 1982 the club split into two, with Kyneton United playing in the Metro Division 2 and the newly formed Kyneton Soccer Club (Yellow and Black) playing in the Bendigo League.

The present club, Kyneton District Soccer Club, began in 1989 as a merger of the two existing clubs with the new colours of claret and sky blue (West Ham).

1996 saw Kyneton win the second division and come second in the third division, having been relegated the previous year.

The club has grown from fielding 3 senior and 4 junior teams in 2004, to now fielding 10 teams.   

 

In 2008 the Club fielded teams in the BASl, as well as a Womens team in the Melbourne Metro North West Division.

 In 2009 the club fielded 4 Senior Teams (Division One, Division Two, Womens and Youth) and 6 Junior teams, (Under 16 X2, Under 14, Under 13, Under 12 and Under 11)

 

With the expansion in participation in the game, the club took the decision in season 2010 to move all senior teams into competitions in Melbourne.   The Youth Teams was brought under the Senior Men’s banner and the club now fields Thirds (Divisions 1, 3, 4 and 5) as well as our womens team in the Womens State 3 competition.   Our Junior teams remained in the BASL in season 2010.

 

Senior Teams play on Sunday and the Juniors on Saturday.
