Bull Bay FC was formed in 1975, and with headquarters at Nine Miles Housing Scheme, the Club entered the KSAFA Major League that same year with playing field at Windsor Lodge. It was not by accident that the club donned the colour red, gold and green as it was born and nestled in the Mecca of the Rastafarian Movement such as the home grown Bobo Shanti ,the nascent Twelve Tribes of Israel as well as served as the gathering and retreat for Bob Marley that 'Chant Down Babylon' with the Mystic Revelation of Rastafari and regular Nyabinghi Observances.
The Great West Football Club as it was called in 1968, when the club was first founded, remained it's name until 1979 when "Waterhouse FC" emerged from a community aching to be a part of the Jamaican landscape not only to shed negative perceptions which seeped into the community from time to time but for being a solid social contributor to the Jamaican society.
