    Fitzroy Stars is separate to Brunswick - Stars played in MNFL (and WSFL as well?) and were around for years before that even

    Hi. Do the records have the team lists? I played for Sandringham Sacred Heart back in the 80's and would really love a copy of the SSH lists if possible. Good memories....

    No they didn't. They might have done it for Grand Finals though.

    Yeah, possibly. Can't seem to find much info at all, except a grand final on YouTube in 84. Will keep hunting.
    Thanks.

    I played juniors at Holy Child 1977-79 in the Northern Metropolitan Football League. We wore blue jumpers with a yellow monogram, home ground was one of the ovals at Gibb Reserve. Gone the way of a few other clubs from around that area - Dallas Blues, Coolaroo Rovers, I think Upfield had a side too?

    Holy Child was Rod 'Curly' Austin's old stomping ground.

    Had their own dedicated bong room and certain supporters used to pull roscoes on opposition fans when things got willing.

    I know of two clubs that aren't on your excellent list.

    Essendon Baptists-St Johns : The club played out at Fairbairn Park, won the 1956 EDFL A grade flag and was home to Essendon greats such as Ron Evans, Ted Fordham, Ken Fraser and Don McKenzie. The club combined with the Ascot Vale Presbyterians to form the powerful Essendon - Tullamarine footy club which won a record 5 EDFL flags on the trot between 1975 to 1979. The club dropped the "Essendon" from their name in 1981.

    West Essendon Youth Club (WEYC) Played on the top ground above Doutta Stars at Buckley Park. Was a founding member of the EDFL but struggled as a club only winning one C grade flag in the late 70's. Best known as the club where Gary Foulds originated.
