    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
