Nup, looking to beat Torrens' record of going without a spoon for their first 33 seasons. Wouldn't be many teams anywhere that have done that.

I always thought that the Natives Football club which won the wooden spoon in 1896 and West Torrens Football Club were in fact the same club, the same as Medindie Football Club and North Adelaide Football Club and more recently Footscray Football Club and the Western Bulldogs Football Club.

In no way am I trying to decry West Torrens (my mother would roll in her grave) but I just seek clarification as to whether Natives changed their name to West Torrens or they were two separate clubs.

Natives "won" the wooden spoon in 1895

I knew that they "won" a spoon just before "electorate" football began but were they the same club as West Torrens?

I would say yes:

The origins of the team which went on to carry the name of West Torrens into the SAFA and SANFL date back to 1894, however, when a group of Port Adelaide players, unable to get a regular game, elected to form a breakaway side known as Port Natives. This team, which wore red and white playing uniforms, was affiliated with the Adelaide and Suburban Association in 1894 and the following year was admitted to the SAFA, when it changed its colours to black and gold. After a season under the Port Natives monicker during which it finished last, followed by a season simply as Natives, when it came second from last, the club members unanimously agreed a name change to West Torrens in 1897 to coincide with the inception of district football. By this time, the club had also adopted the blue and gold colours that would become its trademark.

I'm by no means an expert on this, but I think it is worth further discussion, so I've started a topic with this quote on the History Forum entitled "Natives" and "Port Natives".

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=42948

I've found a couple of links from around the place that may help clarify things.

Apologies if I've duplicated a topic on there, no disrespect intended.
