Beverley was one of ten founder members of the Avon Football Association, which was formed in 1959 by means of a merger between the East Avon Football Association and the Avon Valley Football Association. The club reached its first AFA grand final in 1960 when it scored 16.11 (107) to 5.10 (40) grand final defeat of Northam Unions. In 1961 it went back to back on the strength of a similarly convincing grand final triumph over the same opposition, final scores being Beverley 12.13 (85) defeated Unions 5.7 (37).
Beverley went on to qualify for both the 1962 and 1963 grand finals as well, but suffered defeat at the hands of Quairading in the former year and Meckering in the latter. The remainder of the 1960s saw Beverley dropping back among the chasing pack.
The 1970s brought a fifty per cent success rate from four senior grade grand finals. In both 1973 against Kellerberrin and 1976 against Cunderdin Beverley was successful, but the 1974 grand final against Quairading and the 1977 clash with Cunderdin both ended in defeat.
The 1980s would prove to be the only complete decade of the club’s involvement in the AFA not to yield a premiership. The only grand final appearance for the decade came in 1986, but Cunderdin proved comfortably too strong.
Over the past couple of decades Beverley has experienced its fair share of highs and lows. The last three seasons have seen the side struggling in the lower half of the premiership placings, but balanced against this there have been more than a smattering of grand final appearances, with victory being claimed in those of 1992, 1996 and 2003. Beverley’s most recent senior grade grand final appearance came in 2005, but ended in defeat at the hands of Northam Federals.
In 2008 the seniors managed just 4 wins from 18 home and away matches to finish second from last. 2009 saw the league boys narrowly miss out on the finals, finishing 5th.
2010 was a yoyo season for the league team as they started the season poorly, winning only 2 games out of the first 6. However, the boys did some soul searching after the dissappointing round 6 loss, and went on to win the next 10 matches including the grand final against arch-rivals, Quairading, with a 12.3 (75) to 6.11 (47) win!! This ended a 7-year premiership drought for the Redbacks! Rhys Rowlands was awarded the Best On Ground.
2011: The League team had a successful season, but suffered with a few injuries late in the season. They lost the Preliminary Final to Keller/Tammin by 4 points. Keller/Tammin went on to win the grand final. The reserves reached the elimination final, but were beaten by a more experienced team in Cunderdin.
2012: After starting poorly, the league team won 12 games in a row to win the AFA Grand Final. Scott Minchin was awarded the Ken Baxter Medal for Best On Ground, while coach James Turner won the Radiowest man of the Match for kicking 6 goals. The reserves had a poor season, only winning 2 games and finishing 2nd last.
