Carlton Rovers FC was formed in 1980 and joined the St George Football Association as a foundation member of the then newly formed Premier League competition. Carlton has enjoyed great success over many a year in the district's top flight of senior football with many campaigns as Semi Finalists, Grand Finalists and Champions. The great Carlton teams of the past have seen some of the best St George District players represent, who over time built up a legacy that continues today of quality football played with passion. Rovers is widely regarded as the "Family Club" reflected by the life long friendships that characterise the Club, its Players and Supporters.
2015 - Something Old Something New
2015 saw our biggest ever representation with 12 teams and over 200 players. PL 1st's finished just outside the Top 4 after a strong run in the second round, our AAB Res, AAC (2) & U21 teams made the semis playing some great football along the way but it was the AAF team (young & old) that brought us huge joy winning an epic and entertaining Grand Final. Our new look women's team improved greatly and our old dogs O35 & O45 were very competitive again.
2014 - SGFA Club Champions - (4 to 9 Teams)
Our teams experienced a mixed performance in 2014 where at one stage all 8 teams were strong candidates for spots in the Top Four playoffs in their respective competitions. This was particularly pleasing as we competed proudly and enjoyed some great results along the way. After a great 2013 PL 1st grade could only finish 5th, AAA 1st grade left their run late and were the form team in the second round, AAB battled and both finished just outside the four. The usual suspects AAA Res, WPL and O45 provided us with Finals entertainment with the old dogs (O45's) eventually winning a thrilling GF to bring a major trophy home to Wembley.
The Club is extremely proud to have won the SGFA's Cub Championship for clubs with 9 or less teams.
2013 - On the Charge Again
The Club enjoyed a successful resurgences with several teams vying for finals and our PL 1st Grade, AAA Res & O45A all making their respective Grand Final. Our other teams improved significantly and this was shown as we finished second in the SGFA's Club Championship just missing out by the smallest margin. The introduction of additional youth academy teams in U14A & U15A highlighted the value of professional coaching to enhance skills and player development for junior players.
2012 - Consolidation
A year where we stabilised the ship and settled down to consolidate our teams in their competitions. Our foray into juniors development continued with U13A & U14A teams.
2011 - A Big Year
In 2011 we are fielding 10 teams including our first junior competition team the U12A's to compliment our PL, AAA, AAB Squads and AAC, O35A and AA Woman 1 teams. All our teams continue the competitive tradition of our Club's heritage taking on all challenges.
2010 - The Journey Continues
In 2010 our AAB Women won back to back Premierships and Grand Finals earning promotion to AAA. Our AAB(1) & AAC made a gallant effort in the semi series but fell in the Final. The Premier League squad struggled in 1st Round games with injuries and abscences but hit their straps in 2nd round games to be the form teams but left their run too late. O35A's and AAA Squad have had better years and claimed some special scalps but not enough points to be there in mix.
2009 - 30 Year Anniversary
In 2009, our mighty Club celebrated its 30th year and once again competed in Premier League where it all began. Over these years we have been blessed to have seen some special talent whose efforts as players and Clubmen helped forge our legend. We celebrated this special year in fine style fielding 10 teams with 150 players including our first ever womens team resulting in Grand Final wins for AAA(R), AAB(R), AAW(C) and a galant Runners Up for our O35A's.
2008 - Highlights
In 2008, Carlton Rovers FC returned to its home base at "Wembley" the picturesque Harold Fraser Reserve at Blakehurst and fielded competitve squads in the All Age A Squad and All Age C competitions and its new junior stars the U6 "Pups" were unleashed.
Our All Age A Squad achieved a unique double becoming Minor Premiers in both grades and ultimately winning promotion to elite Premier League in 2009. In addition, our AAA First Grade side won the 2008 Grand Final ensuring they could rightly lay claim to be the 2008 AAA Champions.
The distinctive colours of Wattle Yellow jerseys & Bottle Green shorts are a constant reminder to friend and foe of what it takes to be a Carlton Rover!
