Our Proud History

Founded: 1976

Club Colours: Red shirt with yellow trim, dark blue shorts and socks

Social base: Spanish-Australian Club, Narrabundah, ACT

Narrabundah is a central suburb in Canberra, the capital city of Australia. The word 'Narrabundah', means 'small bird of prey' in the local Aboriginal dialect.

The name 'Narrabundah Soccer Club' first appeared on the local soccer scene in 1976 in the guise of Melrose - Narrabundah. It was formed after a merger between the two teams that represented the regions then-large Spanish migrant community, Woden Iberia SC and Melrose-Lyons SC.

The newly formed club catered for both junior and senior players in the local Canberra soccer competitions. The senior team competed in the highest level of competition in Canberra for many seasons with varying levels of success. With the backing of the local Spanish community, Narrabundah flourished on and off the field, drawing large crowds to their home games at Boomanulla Oval, which is just a stones-throw from the Spanish-Australian Club in Narupai place, Narrabundah.

The club has over the years developed players who have successfully represented the ACT at Australian National Championships level, NSW State League level, National Soccer League levels. One player, Andrew Bernal, captained Australia at Youth World Cup level and also played for the Socceroos and professionally in Europe during the 1980's and early 90's.

Apart from competing in the local leagues, Narrabundah SC also hosted and competed in various post-season tournaments. The most famous being the 'Copa de la Hispanidad' (Spanish Cup) which is an 'annual' tournament played between various Spanish-community teams from across Australia as a way of celebrating Spanish national day on October 12. Narrabundah has also competed in other tournaments such as the 'Teletón Cup', the Annual 6-a-side tournament (champions in 1994), The Veterans Shield and the Canberra 'Mini World Cup' among others.

The original Narrabundah Soccer Club folded in the late 1980's, but continued to compete in various post-season tournaments such as the Spanish cup. Apart from a brief spell back in the ACT soccer federation during 1994-1996, it took until 2002 to get the club back into official competition on a full-time basis. In late 2001 a group of young soccer enthusiasts approached former president, Mr Roger Arquero with a view to forming a committee to guide Narrabundah Soccer Club successfully and thus the 'new' Narrabundah Soccer Club was formed.
