Panton Hill is a pretty town an hour north of Melbourne. The Redbacks play Division 2 in the Northern Football League, against suburban and rural clubs. In 2013 the Redbacks won the Division 3 premiership by a single, solitary point.
The club was founded in 1926, in a league called the Bourke/Evelyn Football League.
Scoreboard Pressure visited for the 2016 Anzac twilight game against Hurstbridge, and found that the old scoreboard was now the John Millman Stand.
