They won 16 of their 19 league titles between the 1940/41 and 1981/82 seasons, with the other two coming after significant breaks. They were forced to wait 18 years after winning the league in 1981/82 for their next title, as they broke their duck in the 1999/2000 campaign. After winning the title again in 2001/02, they endured another drought without the title, this time 19 years, which ended at the conclusion of the 2020/21 campaign.
