The history of the Beaconsfield Superules Football Club started back in 1996 after Peter Shearer had played a handful of games with his mate Matthew Gubbins at Cranbourne Superules in 1995. He liked the concept of Superules and, being involved with Noble Park for all his senior football life, presented the concept of Superules to the Noble Park Football Club. Peter and Matthew managed to get 30 players registered and the Noble Park Superules was started.
Over the years Noble Park and Beaconsfield senior football club had traded players back and forth and had a healthy relationship. When senior players for Beaconsfield finished playing their senior football they migrated to Noble Park Superules. Over the years the number of ex Beaconsfield players grew to the extent there were more ex Beaconsfield players than Noble Park players, and with the Beaconsfield Senior Club realising that most of their future committee, coaches and possible future players were heading to Noble Park, they then approached Glenn Stacey to return to Beaconsfield and start a Beaconsfield Superules side.
Finally it was in 2002, Noble Park had such a poor year and, with only a handful of players committed to returning the following season, the offer was then taken up by Glen Stacey and the committee to return to the Beaconsfield Football Club. In 2003 the Noble Park Football Club Superules side ceased and Beaconsfield Football Club Superules side was formed.
In 2003 Beaconsfield joined the competition in second division and had a relatively successful year winning every game of the season only to go on and lose the Grand final to Melbourne Fire Brigade. The league decided, based on the season Beaconsfield had in 2003, to promote them to first division in 2004. Beaconsfield had an overwhelming response to the Superules concept and that, along with the promotion to first division, the club also entered a second team into the third division competition.
In honour of Peter Shearer, who originally founded the club and went on to be president and coach, the Best and Fairest award was struck in his name. In 2005 the Best and Fairest for the third division side was struck in Bill Flight's honour. Bill Flight coached the club for three years, captained the side for three years and won 2 Best and Fairest. The clubs first Life Member was received by Andy Gubbins in 2005. In 2006 the Beaconsfield Superules introduced a Best Club Man Award and this was received by Gary Cameron.
2009 saw the introduction of the Masters 1 and Masters 2/3 sides. This proved to be very successful with both the masters sides finishing on top of their respective ladders for the season. Mark Turner was appointed the coach of the masters 2/3 side and the club Best and Fairest was named in his honour.
In 2010, with the influx of many new players to Beaconsfield, it was decided to start up another side. Beaconsfield re-entered a side in the third division competition and appointed Grant Sloan as coach. This now brings the total amount of sides fielded by Beaconsfield to 4.
2011, with the ageing group of players now at the football club the committee decided to introduce an over 47's side which unfortunately meant the Div 3 side was disbanded. The coach of the first over 47's side was Glenn Stacey (Podge). The master 1 side had a very impressive year going through the season undefeated under coach Shane Easton (Easto).
