During and immediately after WW I, the Club played a handful of ‘arranged’ matches.

Arranged matches were played again in 1927/28 when the majority of Club members turned out for the Ferntree Gully chapter of the United Ancient Order of Druids (U.A.O.D.). This occurred when a dispute with the RDCA went unresolved at the end of the 1926/27 season and the members vowed not to re-affiliate with the Competition in 1927/28.
