Old Skool Era
Joining with two games left of season 4, the Gangstaz were relegated into a league full of bots and the lack of competition nearly resulted in the team being removed. Two times hattrick had to e-mail the owner to inform him to log in or lose his side. The manager did log in and sen his side had been promoted into III.7 and were now getting beat regularly.
The III.7 Era
With a new lease of life for the game, West Coast Gangstaz built up a rivalry with fellow III.7 side FingersInCider and it was this rivarly that inspired the Gangstaz management to concentrate on the footballing side of the organisation. Resulting in a championship win and a play off to reach Division II (Which they lost 2-0)
The Big Re-Build Era
Having failed to reach Division II, the chairman sold on the entire squad (With the exception of 3 players) during Season 13 and brought in an excellent trainer and 10 young playmakers which were to become the Gangstaz most successful side.
Season 14 seen them clinch the IV.33 title in the first season of asking, while midfielder Zelaya won the first of his eleven U-20 call up's. Moving into III.2 the club continued to improve and in Season 17 finished second in the league, losing out on goal difference and making it to the final of the Scottish Cup.
Season 18 saw the club win III.2 with 13 of the 14 league matches resulting in wins for the Gangstaz.
