One of Western Australia's most successful cricket clubs in recent history, Scarborough won the 1st Grade competition in 2006–07, 2007–08, 2008–09 and 2009–10, the first team to win four straight titles since 1919.[1]

Scarborough's head coach since 2006 is former Gulls paceman Simon Bowman, while batsman Clint Heron captained the 2008–09 and 2009–10 grand final wins.

The club has produced several players who have represented Australia in Test cricket, most notably Justin Langer.
