FORMATION OF THE SUNS CLUB

The club was formed by the merger of 2 existing clubs in the AFLT comp – Seniors (Townsville City Lions) & Juniors (Northern Beaches Barras).

The Townsville City Lions Formally known as the Northern Beaches Lions have a long and proud history in the Townsville league.

Northern Beaches Barras has a short but successful History with a number of their founding members still volunteering in the club each and every week.
