The continued growth of the club is a great tribute to the efforts of the committee, players and parents who all make FUSC the largest sporting club in the community.

HISTORY
The club has a long history in WA football (soccer), and was originally known as Cottesloe SC when first admitted into the State League competition in 1962. Cottesloe SC then merged with SMA (Swan Migrant Association) in 1971 to become SMA Cottesloe SC. As SMA were based in the Ascot area it was decided to change the club name to Ascot Soccer Club” the following year.

In 1974 the club became WA Champions when we wont the State Premier Division title by nine points. In 1978 Ascot won the last Ampol Cup, and that trophy is proudly on display in the club house at Hartfield Park.

The latter stages of 1978 is probably the most significant part of the clubs history. Ascot SC entered into merger discussions with fourth division club, Kalamunda United SC, who were based at Hartfield Park, Forrestfield. A third small club called Manning Rovers also came into the mix because of requiring a home. The merger went ahead and we entered the State Competition in 1979 as Forrestfield United SC.

Ascot was a state league 1st div (premier) team at that time but were losing their ground to baseball and they did not have a junior base. Kalamunda had juniors, an amateur team and a ground.

The new Hartfield complex was being built and FUSC became part of the premises with our own clubroom.

All the lighting that started with some Forrestfield volunteers erecting 2 poles with 2 small rectangle lights close to Hale road. Those poles are still there but were extended and improved lights connected.

The crest of  The Club is a composite of the historic background of Ascot Soccer Club and Kalamunda United Soccer Club, the principal features being a lion rampant, a black swan, the Kalamunda Shire emblem (the leschenaultia flower), and a representation of the three major hills – Kalamunda hill, Gooseberry hill and Lesmurdie hill.
