Welcome to the "Cutters" Home Page
The South Cairns Australian Football club has a rich and proud history dating back to 1956 as one of two original founding clubs in the league, located in Edmonton and based at Fretwell Park at the foot of the Great Dividing Range.
Priding ourselves as a family friendly sporting club, South Cairns Cutters currently field teams from Under 8's through to the Under 17 Colts, a Women's team and two Senior teams. In 2015 we will also be introducing Under 6 teams to compliment the Auskick program, and a Under 16 girls team, bringing our total number of registered players close to 500.
The Cutters have become a highly successful club over the past 14 years competing in seven of the last twelve Grand Finals. Off the field the club has a fantastic structure and strong committee in place to take us well into the future. With a Social Club exceeding 2200 members, the club has committed - in partnership with AFL Cairns and Cazaly's - to the construction of new social club in what is the largest development seen on the southside of Cairns in over 10 years. The social club will include a restaurant, a fully licensed bar, function and gaming rooms and it is aiming at being opened in January 2016
Below is an artist impression of what the redevelopment will look like.
The Cutters have been very fortunate over the past decade and a half to have grown a large and loyal supporter base along with a fantastic group of sponsors. These two groups of supporters and sponsors are what keeps the momentum of this proud sporting club moving along.
In 2011, aware of our social obligations and desire to commemorate the passing of one our players - Kris Seiver - the football club dedicated a days proceeds to a chosen charity. Over the past four years charities supported have included Beyond Blue, Breast Cancer Awareness, Haralds House, and Give 5 for Kids, with over $12000 raised.
