Glen Eira has one of the most colourful histories in the VAFA. An exploration of the club is like digging back through a family tree. Whilst the Glen Eira Saints of today were initiated in 1999, they came to be via an amalgamation of clubs that can be summarised as follows: Glen Huntly 1991-1998 (formerly Balaclava 1982-1990 and prior to that AMP Society 1963-1981); and St Kilda South Caulfield 1992-1998 (formerly St Kilda CBC Old Boys 1958-1991 who had merged with Murrumbeena South Caulfield from the YCW Football League in 1991).

So taking into account the clubs that played in the VAFA, the Glen Eira Saints have 9 senior premiership flags hanging in their club rooms. St Kilda CBC Old Boys can lay claim to four of them, the last of them the 1984 C Section premiership. Whilst the merged entity of St Kilda South Caulfield won the 1994 E Section premiership.

AMP Society had success at E Section twice, winning the senior flag in both 1968 and 1979. After their name change to Balaclava in time for the 1982 season, more E Section triumphs followed in 1984 and 1986.

Since the the Glen Eira Saints took over the mantle in 1999, they have managed to make three Grand Finals as a senior outfit, claiming the 2016 & 2018 Division 3 flags against Hawthorn AFC. Prior to the 2016 season commencing, Monash Gryphons shared playing resources with the Saints as they considered an amalgamation into the future while the Gryphons continued to field a team in Club XVIII. In 2017, they named their U19s Old McKinnon/Glen Eira as their players were predominantly McKinnon students. That team claimed the U19 Section 4 flag in 2018.
