If it is the same club that you are thinking of, then Australianfootball.com says that they were known as Chadstone Salesians and were formed in 1957.

It says that they played in the ESCFA and merged with Ashburton Uniting in 1985 to become Ashburton-Chadstone.

Obviously the current Chadstone club is not connected as they were formerly known as Syndal-Tally Ho until about 10 years ago.

I found out today that the club listed above was a different Chadstone.

This is on the history section of the Southern Football League website:

Chadstone joined from the Caulfield-Oakleigh District Football League in 1963 having commenced in the Reserve Open grade in 1959 and 1960 then into A grade 1961 and 1962. Playing at what is now Percy Treyvaud Memorial Park, they continued through to 1977 then moved to the vacant East Caulfield Reserve for 1978 and 1979.

In 1980, part of the club merged with a reformed Carnegie to form Carnegie-Chadstone playing for one season at East Caulfield. Another section of the club returned to their original ground as Chadstone continuing until 1985 before disbanding. The club did re-appear as Ashburton-Chadstone for 1993.

We were just under the Westgate bridge.. I played when we were in the western region early 2000's.
Brooklyn at that time were not competitive in WRFL Div 2 and transferred to SFL to better compete in its third division.

Could be still around if the WRFL had a third division back then as it does now.

Wonder if any of these defunct footy clubs have reunions
East Hawthorn had a reunion a couple of years ago. And I think Appin did too, and Northern United (near Bendigo). Generally it tends to be the anniversary of a premiership or some such. Marnoo actually put a team together a couple of years back (filled with sons of players as a pre-requisite) and played a scratch match v, I think, Rupanyup, which became part of Rup's pre-season praccy schedule.

I suppose it didn't help being located between Spotswood and what is now Seddon-Yarraville.
