Defunct footy clubs in Melbourne

Remove this Banner Ad

I am pretty sure that become Ashburton-Chadstone in the late 1980s (1986 or 1987?) and played in the ESCFA until it ended in 1992.

I reckon they played for two seasons in the lower grades of the SFL before folding.

The SFL had something like five divisions after the merger and in a period of 2-3 seasons contracted by at least one division after the loss of Ashburton-Chadstone, Box Hill Adelphians, Camberwell Power, Collingwood Districts, Fairfield, Heidelberg Colts, North Blackburn and the Richmond Rosellas amongst others.
I did a bit of research on the SFNL, SESFL and ESCFA, and compared 1993 and 2023:

A lot of this is a bit questionable and I am open to corrections.

1. The South East Suburban FL (SESFL) actually renamed itself the SFL in 1992, and the old Eastern Suburbs Churches (ESCFA) sides joined it in 1993 (along with a side from the South West Gippsland FL). For this exercise, it is easier to think of the two leagues as ESCFA and SESFL up to 1992, and use the name SFL / SFNL for the merged entity from 1993 onwards.
2. When the SFL started in 1993, the five divisions were called Premier-1-2-3-4. They were renumbered 1-2-3-4-5 in (I think) 1995. I have just numbered them 1-2-3-4-5 from the get go, as it does your head in otherwise.
3. Origins: Caulfield didn't exist in the ESCFA, being created by a merger for the 1993 season. The two sides that merged were both ex-ESCFA, so I have classed Caulfield as an ESCFA side.
4. Current location: some clubs moved twice (Canterbury went to the EFL, then to the VAFA), while one went and came back (Bentleigh to/from VAFA). Others went into recess before moving (Mt Waverley - Burwood), while another allegedly phoenixed itself after being refused permission to move. To make it easier, I just took it as where they were in 1993 and 2023.
4. Ends: these can be a bit controversial. Burwood and East Bentleigh supposedly 'merged' with other SFL sides (Mt Waverley and St Paul's Bentleigh, respectively), but there is not much doubt they were taken over, making only a tiny change to the names and jumpers of the sides they were merged with.
5. Mergers with VAFA sides are a bit more complex. There is not much doubt North Kew was taken over by Kew VAFA (the only sign of their existence is that Kew occasionally wear North Kew jumpers as a clash jumper), but Parkdale and Mentone Vultures seems more even. Again, to make it easier, I just treated it as a takeover.
6. East Camberwell is harder again. They merged with EFL side Surrey Hills to become Surrey Park, in a deal in which Surrey Park seems to have been the winner - but they stayed in East Camberwell's league. It was only some years later Surrey Park went to EFL. I have treated this as a move to the EFL.
7. Even death of a footy side is harder to diagnose than you might think. Fairfield (I think) went to NFL (?), but folded fairly soon after, so I have described them as dead. Others (Ashburton-Chadstone) survive as junior clubs, but as no longer around as senior clubs.
8. I haven't tried to include sides that joined the SFNL after 1993. My head will explode.

Thoughts:
1. I was surprised by how big the ESCFA was - 27 teams survived to go to the SFNL in 1993. Looking into it, it doesn't seem to have been dying (by club numbers, anyway): Eley Park joined in 1992. Many / most of the sides that joined the ESCFA in the latter years (e.g. Springvale District, Collingwood District) did not appear to have religious affiliations.
2. I was also surprised by how weak the ESCFA was. ESCFA sides made up only 30% of SFNL Div 1 and 40% of SFNL Div 2 - but 100% of SFNL Divs 4 & 5. This may be why clubs kept joining the ESCFA - they had a better chance of being successful in a weaker comp.
3. Having an ESCFA background seems to be a liability. Of the 8 SFNL sides I have classed as dead, all 8 came from the ESCFA. Many surviving ESCFA sides have also had extended periods of weakness (Box Hill North, Chadstone, Eley Park all had times in the VAFA Thirds as they couldn't field reserves sides).
4. Unsurprisingly, six of the eight dead sides came from Divs 4 & 5, with only one from Div 3 (Fairfield) and one from Div 2 (Collingwood District).
5. For sides still in the SFNL in 2023, most seem to be playing at the same division (8) or a higher one (9) than they were in 1993 (17/20), with only 3 going downwards. Upward mobility is only partly explained by Div 5 disappearing (only two Div 5 sides remain in the SFNL).
6. Moving to the VAFA seems to be equally popular for clubs from all divisions (1 or 2 clubs from each division - two each from Divs 1, 3 and 5, one each from Div 2 and 4), and from both components (of the 6 clubs that moved to the VAFA, 3 came from the SESFL and 3 from the ESCFA - though the two that merged with VAFA sides were both ex-SESFL).
7. Going to the EFL seems to be an option mainly for sides in the top 3 divisions. Probably says a bit about the strength of the EFL.

There's probably more you can make of it, but I've over-thought it enough.

In regards to your 'thoughts' point 4 re Collingwood Districts & Fairfield, both clubs had, er, 'cultural issues'.

i.e. they were full of thugs. This may have impacted on their ability to survive the league change.

Perhaps a good moment to post these DVFL Footy Record images that I've been meaning to pop up for months as they back up your comment. These are from the 1996 Season, Fairfield Park's one and only in the league. As I knew they, and St Andrews Coburg, had only played a season or two I was interested to learn why that was the case but I could not find anything on the web - fortunately a friend had records from that era and I was able to take a look. My memory on their colours was almost correct - I had thought they wore a white jumper with two red vertical stripes, in fact it was a white jumper with a red panel as shown by the footy record (and a subsequent search on Facebook Groups found a past players page with photos confirming this).

Whilst not all of the 1996 footy records were in the collection, the ones that were there certainly paint the picture of what went down and it's a fascinating read; coach quits, pot shots at rival clubs, placed on a bond, a record loss, another club offering to help them out of their mess, a record loss of 50 goals vs Hurstbridge, players backing up in reserves and seniors... It may have been one season, but it was filled with drama! I've also added the Opening Round editorial which I found interesting as well.

I have a few others from that year regarding St Andrew's Coburg and other matters that I'll post another day. Speaking of St Andrew's Coburg, their full forward Gavin Tapner lead the 1996 goal kicking all season until Paul Baker kicked 21 goals of the Bridges 50 against Fairfield Park to take the lead - Tapner almost caught him, unluckily finishing just 3 goals shy at the end of the season - an incredible effort considering St Andrews Coburg finished 2nd last. (Edit - I just noticed that Tapner eventually did have his day in the sun, winning the Division 2 goal kicking in the year 2000 with 90 for Watsonia).

Enjoy.

Carnegie looks like Melbourne's jumpers
East Bentleigh had Richmond jumpers
GTV-9 I think had a white jumper with black Channel 9 dots on them
 
Hey, just wondering if anyone has any info on any of the the jumpers worn by these defunct clubs? Any photos, links or descriptions would be appreciated

St Andrews-Coburg wore a gold jumper with a royal blue vee in the VAFA (swapped to the West Coast jumper without the eagle when they moved to the DVFL).
Thornbury wore the 1980s Footscray Bulldogs jumper, royal blue top, white band, red band, white band, royal blue bottom.

WRFL
East Brunswick wore the Collingwood jumper of black and white stripes.
Gladstone Park wore the Port Melbourne jumper of red and blue stripes.
Newlands Coburg wore the 1980s Melbourne jumper of blue (not navy) and a red yoke.
 
From what I could dig up:
