About Us

St. Johnstone Football Club represents the City of Perth and the region of Perth & Kinross, existing since 1884 when the side was formed by the local cricket club. March 1885 saw the newly formed side, wearing the white of their cricket colours, defeat Caledonian Railway 1-0 in their first-ever match.

Since those days kicking a ball across the South Inch, Saints are now one of Scottish football's leading clubs after qualifying for Europe in four consecutive seasons between 2012-15, defeating Norwegian giants Rosenborg and Swiss Super League side Luzern along the way.

Those triumphs in recent seasons were topped off by lifting the Scottish Cup in front of over 15,000 Saints fans at Celtic Park on 17 May 2014.

The Scottish Cup win was greeted by over 25,000 people in Perth city centre when Tommy Wright and his players paraded the world oldest national sports trophy, underlining Saints' bond with the Fair City and the community it represents.

We proudly play an active role in the local area by forming partnerships with schools and running an award-winning community department.
