    I'm pretty sure EHSOB just folded outright and were never heard from again.

    North Essendon played on the upper ground at Cooper Street where the old WEYC (West Essendon) used to play and was made up from remnants of that club.

    Yes, they became Wembley Park who then wound up in the early 2000's.

    Thanks for this information which I had forgotten. Strangely, it was my understanding that the two clubs hardly had anything to do with each other and I can recall our players from Adelphians, discussing this very issue.

    Going through some old boxes and found a football premiers medallion from 1925 belonging to my Great-Grandfather which was surprising as I had no idea he used to play. Seeking any information of a current (possibly renamed/merged etc.) or more likely a defunct football that could possibly meet the initials W&C.C.F.C. (or WACCFC if I'm interpreting the below engraved writing incorrectly) based in Victoria somewhere that were their respective Leagues premiers in 1925.

    Appreciate any info from the knowledgeable posters of BF!

    Cheers

    AMP Society - VAFA (became Balaclava and later merged with Glenhuntly - now part of Glen Eira VAFA)

    AMP Society merged with North Caulfield YCW at the end of the 1980 season but kept the the AMP name for the 1981 season. Name was changed to Balaclava for the 1982 season . Home ground was the Beaurepaire Centre - Oval 13 - at Albert Park.(right where the start/finish line for the Grand Prix is). AMP wore Royal blue & white stripes with a plain blue back but changed this to the North strip when they became Balaclava.

    Oh this adds a new level to this merger pathway. I need to find my old infographic!

    I'm chasing some old football records from the ESCFA for a Highfield Football Club reunion. Would you or anyone have any records from the 1980's that I could get copies of??

    I have about three or four from over the decade. No finals. Can't put my finger or exactly where they are though.

    Does anyone know anything about an Auburn Football Club who might have been around in the Hawthorn area in 1940?
