The Byford Bushrangers have been in existence since around 1982 with the club, originally called North Murray Tee-Ball, becoming incorporated in 1986 and by the early 1990’s the club had an excess of 300 registered players.
The club participated in the State Championships from 2002-2007. During this time they came second in 13A in 2004 and second in U11 Girls A in 2007.
The name was changed in 2003 to North Murray Diamond Sports which incorporated the introduction of baseball and softball.
Over time the number of registered players had declined due to increased variety of sports introduced into the area and in 2010 the club became inactive. In 2014 the club was reborn and Byford Bushrangers had its first season in 5 years with 10 teams with the introduction to Toddler Tee-ball.
In 2016, due to changes in Perth and the idea of “North Murray” being more reflective of the Peel region, the committee agreed to change the name of the club and Byford Bushrangers Inc. was decided.
The 2017 State Championships in saw the return of Byford Bushrangers, with the first team in 10 years coming third in U10C division. Byford Bushrangers has attended every State Championship since winning U10C in 2018, followed by second in U10B and winning U11B in 2019!
Baseball was re-introduced for 2018-2019, having 1 Machine Pitch and 2 Little League teams within the Southern Hills Charter. The same year, a summer Women’s softball team also had a go and came out with the wooden spoon.
2019-2020 is going to be a big year for Byford Bushrangers. Three softball teams played over winter (U13 Juniors at Dale Districts, and both a Men’s and Women’s team at Canning Softball), 2 Machine Pitch teams, 3 Little League teams and 1 Intermediate League team. Our Lower Oval at Briggs Park is currently undergoing a $3.9 million redevelopment and the club is excited for when it is complete.
The population in the Serpentine-Jarrahdale Shire is increasing at a rapid rate due to continuous major development work. It is anticipated over the next few years the number of players will increase even further.
