Club history

The Wynyard Football Club was believed to be formed in 1885 as Table Cape and adopted the name of Wynyard in 1890.

The Wynyard Cats entered the North West Football Union (NWFU) in 1925 after playing in a variety of competitions for the first four decades.

The Cats were involved with the infamous "Goalpost Final" against North Hobart at West Park Oval in 1967, which was declared a "no result" after hudereds of fans invaded the ground and tore down the goalposts as North Hobart full-forward David "Dickie" Collins went back to take a kick after the siren with Wynyard leading by one point.

In 1987, Wynyard joined the new Northern Tasmanian Football League (which was renamed the North West Football League in 2015), and has competed there since. Wynyard broke a 33-year premiership drought in 2012, with a 13-point Grand Final victory over Latrobe; and in 2014 they defeated Ulverstone by 116 points in the Grand Final to win a second premiership in three years.
