During the 1920s and early 1930s they were one of the most successful soccer clubs in the United States, winning the American Soccer League on seven occasions. They also won the National Challenge Cup four times. In 1924 they won the first ASL / Challenge Cup double and were subsequently the American soccer champions three times in succession. Between 1928 and 1930 they won a further four titles in a row. In 1930 they completed a treble, winning the ASL title, the Challenge Cup and the Lewis Cup.
