Get to know Banyule City

Round 5 of the FFA Cup will see Melbourne Knights make the trip to the North-East to face Banyule City, another side who currently ply their trade in State 1 N/W. 

Having finished 4th in their league last year, Banyule City will provide the Knights with another tricky test in their quest for a Round 6 birth.

The State 1 outfit have already shown how dangerous they can be, having knocked out NPL 2 side Whittlesea Rangers in the last round.

Round 5 is the highest achievement Banyule have reached since the inception of the cup, with the Yallambie Park based outfit currently in a upward trend since being formed in 1969.

Formerly known as Rosanna Soccer club up until 1995, the club spent the best part of two decades in the Victorian 4th Division before earning promotion in 1993.

The club spent another 11 Seasons in Division before being promoted in 2004 to State 2, however they were relegated back to State 3 in 2006. Banyule were crowned State 3 Champions in 2009 before dropping down again in 2012.

Introduction of the National Premier League in 2014 saw a re-structure of the state league, with Banyule City being reinstated in State 2. Promotion in 2015 saw the club achieve their highest ever league position, completing the 2016 State 1 N/W division in a respectable 4th place.

Kick off is 7:30pm tonight at Eltham North Reserve.
