Other information


The Lindisfarne Football Club was formed in 1911 and competed in the Clarence Football Association until 1948 where they won one premiership title in 1924.
In 1949 the club joined the Tasmanian Amateur Football League - Southern Division (Southern Amateurs) winning three premiership titles in 1957, 1982 and its most recent premiership title in 1989 until the League went out of existence at the end of the 1995 season.
In 1996 they joined the newly formed Southern Tasmanian Football League now known as the SFL where it still competes today.
After a solid start to its SFL tenure, the Two Blues suffered from a disastrous period between 1998 and 2004 whereby the club lost 74 consecutive senior matches.
In 2008, Lindisfarne enjoyed a much needed reverse in fortunes by going through the season sweeping all before them, undefeated, only to go down to Huonville Lions by 37-points in the Grand Final.
This loss heralded an era of frustration and heartbreak for the Two-Blues who went on to perform strongly over the next decade only to suffer similar defeats in Grand Finals, their three most recent losses in Grand Finals (2012, 2016 and 2017) realised losses of 5,8 and 5 points, marking five Grand Final defeats in ten years. Finally in 2018, Lindisfarne won the premiership by avenging their upset 2008 loss against Huonville.
