A team playing as Merton Rovers first appeared in the junior fixtures for a single season in 1915.

The Merton Rovers Soccer Club whose record appears above was formed in 1922 and competed in junior competition from 1922 to 1926 before joining the senior ranks in 1927.

The club was suspended by the Queensland Soccer Council from competing in the 1938 season. It was referred to as defunct in contemporary media reports in 1939.

Merton Rovers reformed at the start of the 1940 season and then competed continuously at a senior level (except WWII) until it merged with Easts-Aston Villa prior to the 1970 season.
