Salisbury West has been a member of the Central District/Northern Metropolitan Association since the mid-'60s apart from an 8-year stint with the SAAFL. During its time with the amateurs it strove to win promotion out of A5 but without success. It was a bit unfortunate in 1976 when it came second at the end of the minor round but had to compete with 2 very strong clubs on the way up in Greenacres and West Croydon. On rejoining the Central District Association, the Club meandered along until 1985 when a new committee appointed Kym Golding as captain/coach. From then on the Club played in every finals series with premierships in 1985 and 1987, and 6 Grand Final appearances in 9 seasons. When Northern Metropolitan folded in 1995 it joined the S.A.F.A. only to see that association fold at the end of the 1995 year, so like it or not it was back to the amateurs in division 4 where it won premierships in 1997 and 1999. In 2002 it played in the division 3 Grand Final and so won promotion to division 2.
