Wynnum Vikings

Founded in 1971, the club won its first flag in 1974. Wynnum played in the SQAFA, during an era when Sherwood won eight flags in a row.[2] Demoted to Division two in 1992 the club remained there until the reorganization of the competition in 2000. After winning the 2003 premiership in Division Two, the Vikings were promoted to Division One and won premierships in 2008 and 2009.[3] The renaming of competitions in 2012 means that the Vikings are in SEQAFL Division 2.
