HMAS Cerberus 'Doggies'


Its been a busy couple of years for the Cerberus F.C.


Before the start of the 2018 season the decision was made by the SNFL and Cerberus Executive to re-enter Senior grade football in the newly formed SFNL Division 4.


After a slow start to the season the Doggies stormed home, undefeated after the June long weekend (14 games) to win their first Senior Grade Grand Final in over 50 years.


This saw them promoted to Division 3 where things were much tougher, Cerberus battling hard all year winning 1 game, in the second last round of the year.


2020 will see Cerberus F.C back down in Division 4 where they will be well led by recently appointed coach (and part time player) Zach Godden.

RANAFA wish Zach and the Doggies all the best for the 2020 season and we will be keeping close tabs on how they go. Will another season of silverware await?
