It took just 3 weeks for the 1959 St Johns committee to organise and register nine teams in its inaugural season with Granville Association. St Johns has always been more than just a soccer club. As it names Implies, St Johns originally was an extension of the Marist Brother's Auburn and that of Brother Ivan ideals. The club colours of Maroon and Gold were also extension of the school. During the 1970's and after many home grounds the club was officially handed Webb's Avenue. During the 1980's there were 3 specific things that happened.
In the 1990,s the club achieved 3 more club championship in the years 1992,1996 and 1997.We were also blessed to have the presence of what was to be a future Socceroo Mark Milligan during the 1990s.St Johns has suffered many setbacks in the years between 2006-2011.With the introduction of new rules from the association at the time it was recommended that the clubs name be changed. After the Annual general meeting of September 2011, it was agreed that new name would be Regents Parks Saints Football club which it has to this day.
On the top of the name change the club was dealt a blow from Auburn Council and was moved out of Webbs Avenue the home it had for over 30 years. The club was relocated to Princes Park where it remains to this day.
In the season of 2016 after absence of a decade a dedicated group of girls, with the support of the parents the club was able to re-establish female football.
