The 1990’s was a successful era for the club in many ways. Junior numbers had been consistent, usually about 17 teams (180 – 190 players). The high number of Burwood Junior players who achieved Canterbury representative status is a credit to the club. On the field results support the quality players being produced at Burwood. In 1994 Burwood won the CJFA trophy for the highest average team results, with several teams winning their respective grades and all of the others finishing in the top three. In 1991 a Burwood Midgets league was introduced for the under 6-7 years old. This concept has been very successful and still continues today (now called First Kicks). In 1992 a decision was made to replace the old orange and black strip with a modified version of the clubs original maroon and white strip. One of the few problems over this era has been the lack of people willing to help on Committee. A feature of the 1990’s has been the small loyal group of people running the club at Committee level.
From a Senior perspective this era has been very successful on the field. In 1992 the 1st Men’s team won the inaugural CFA Districts league and with it promotion in to the Southern League Qualifying league. The Senior committee (led by Steve Allen) embarked on an ambitious plan to remain in this league. Unfortunately, the good work done at Committee level proved harder to emulate on the field and the club was relegated back to the Districts league. The 1st Women’s team has been very successful in the 1990’s. They have progressed from winning CWFA Division 2 in 1989 and the Division 1 in 1994, to gain promotion into the CWFA Premier division in 1995. They avoided relegation from this tough league in their first year. A new concept was introduced at Burwood in 1994 when the club entered a Masters team. This has proved very successful with the Masters team winning CFA Masters Division 2 in their first year. Unfortunately 1999 was the last year of Senior football at Burwood. A number of the Senior stalwarts (both men and women) from the 1980’s gradually left the playing ranks and the old drive was soon gone. This was indeed a sad day for Burwood football.
