Club History

Today in 2014 soccer season, Putney Rangers boasts close to 40 teams and is one of the leading soccer clubs on and off the field within the Gladesville-Hornsby Football Association.”

The Club started in 1978 by a company in North Ryde called Ethnor, some 26 years ago, through a group of men wanting to play soccer socially. A year later, they considered playing in a competition. They played in the Churches competition with many of the players being work colleagues.

After the 1980 season, with only a few players working for Ethnor, and the company sponsorship coming to an end, it was decided to change the name of the club and move across to the Gladesville-Hornsby Association. It was then, that Putney Rangers began.

Putney Rangers had their very first All Ages team in the 1981 soccer season. By 1982, Putney had expanded to a 2 team club and by the mid 1980's, the club had incorporated Womens Netball teams, alongside an ever expanding men soccer teams.

Towards the end of the 1980's, many other players from different clubs joined Putney Rangers, and then in 1993, Ryde RSL joined Putney Rangers, bringing direction, influence and structure.

For several years, Putney Rangers stayed roughly the same size, till 1999 when the first junior teams were formed. Putney Rangers has expanded rapidly since 2000, incorporating boys, girls, mens and womens teams.

Today in 2014 soccer season, Putney Rangers boasts close to 40 teams and is one of the leading soccer clubs on and off the field within the Gladesville-Hornsby Football Association.
