In 2006 the club was invited to join the 11-a-side GFSN National League. In a memorable first season, the club won both the league title and the inaugural GFSN Cup. It also entered and won the London Unity League.

In 2010 the club helped to establish a new regional 11-a-side South West Gay League. However in 2011 the club left the South West League due to low member numbers. It now only takes part in GFSN National 5-a-side tournaments.
