Glacis United Football Club was founded in 1964 by Alfredo Sene, Norberto Tosso and Pedro Borge and competed in the 1964/65 Gibraltar Football Association’s (GFA) second division. The team was mainly made up from players of other first division teams mainly Europa FC who at the time disbanded and relinquished their GFA membership.
The team, under the management of Peter Borge (Club co-founder) and James Cortes, won the second division championship in their inaugural season and gained promotion to the GFA’s first division.
In their first season in the top-flight, Glacis United clinched a League and Rock Cup double. This was just the beginning of a successful era in which nine further consecutive league championships were won together with other domestic cup wins.
During this period of silver-ware the team competed internationally in Morocco, Spain, England and Portugal having also played against teams from the English lower leagues, the likes of Scarborough, Kidderminster Harriers, Stourbridge and Oswestry.
