The club was originally formed in 1879 as Cumberland but later changed their name to Parramatta when the District competition was implemented in 1900.
They were admitted to First Division in 1934 and have gone on to win three first grade premierships in their history. Parramatta’s initial First grade premiership in 1977, a 17-9 victory against Randwick under coach Peter Fention.
The Club then played in the 1979 and 1984 Grand Finals going down to Randwick on both occasions but sought their revenge in 1985 and 1986 when the underdogs from Sydney's west succeeded in beating the Galloping Greens to win consecutive premierships under coach Paul Dalton.
