It's been a historic year for the Ingleburn Magpies Junior AFL Club - and not because of the pandemic.

The club finished the 2020 season with a completely unprecedented five premiership trophies from six grand final appearances.

Magpies president Shannon Prenter he was exceptionally proud of the work of all their players, coaches, volunteers and family members.

"It's been an unbelievable year for the club," he said.

"The club has been around since about 1980 and we've never had results like this before."

Prenter said the Magpies now had more than 300 players and officials, scoring a huge jump in numbers for the 2020 season.

He said the Magpies had put a lot of effort into building a club environment that was welcoming to everyone, dedicated and community-based.

Prenter said the club had one of the highest retention of player numbers - for both boys and girls - in the competition for four years running.

"Our club is committed to working hard in promoting the great game of AFL and AFLW in western Sydney," he said.

The 2019 club of the year took home 2020 premierships in the under-12 (x2), under-13, under-15 and under-17 age groups.

"To have six teams in grand finals is an amazing achievement," Prenter said.

"Not only to have six teams in grand finals, but to have five wins certainly surpassed our club's expectations."

The president said the Magpies were proud to have a strong girls contingent, growing every year, and hoped to welcome a fourth girls team in 2021.
