Mt Lilydale Old Collegians joined the VAFA in 1996 at Club XVIII level and it is at this level they have had the most success, a solitary premiership in Club XVIII Section 2 in 2006. Mt Lilyday or the Rams as they often go by are the Eastern most club in the VAFA and as a result they have invariably struggled to have the playing numbers required to field two sides. The club progressed to a senior club with a reserves side in 1999, and they played in the Division 4 Grand Final of 2003 to reach Division 3. This rise only lasted a season before the club was forced back to Club XVIII level due to the aforementioned reasons and this led to their first and only VAFA premiership to date. The club would re-enter in Division 4 in 2007 and were runners up in 2010, but again only lasted a season at Division 3. Another recess to Club XVIII occurred in 2014 before the club was again playing in Division 4 for 2015 and going as far as the preliminary final in 2016.
