Sport and Recreation

The Sandigo Football Club was formed in 1920, who wore the blue and gold colours and played in nine grand finals in their 11 years in the Faithful & District Football Association from 1920 to 1930, winning four premierships, in - 1921, 1922, 1928 and 1930.

In 1929, Sandigo applied for admission to play in the Wagga based Second Grade Football Association, but was refused on the grounds that Sandigo could not fill their team with entirely junior players, but would require senior players to make up the team each week.

After a long and protracted protest after the 1930 grand final with the Faithful & District Football Association, Sandigo went into recess in 1931 and then joined the Narrandera Football Association in 1932. The club unfortunately folded after the 1932 football season.
