The football club was formed in 1898 and for the first few years of their existence played in the Chiltern and District League, then moved to the Hume League in 1953.
The Spiders continue to be a powerhouse club in the Hume League and are highly regarded as a family oriented organisation.
The Howlong Spiders Football and Netball Clubs are constantly looking for new junior and senior players as well as volunteers to strengthen and support the club.
If you are interested in joining the Howlong Spiders please contact us. Alternatively feel free to drop into our weekly training nights at the Howlong Oval (Hawkins St). Training takes place Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6.00pm onwards.

Howlong is a town 28 km west of Albury, and is situated on the Murray River which separates the states of NSW and Victoria. There is a bridge across the Murray into Victoria. The town appears to have taken its name from a property named Hoolong in the area, which was named after an Aboriginal place name meaning “beginning of the plains”.
