Be interesting to see what happens in the coming years with Bute and Paskeville in the Yorke Peninsula FL.

Neither club have junior sides - the colts play as Bute/Paskeville Saints (formerly Bullants). Bute aren't doing that crash hot but are still somewhat competitive. Paskeville are doing pretty well still, but it should be interesting to see how things play out.

Here's a few more from Tassie. Will list some more later.
North Derwent (TFA)
Channel (SFL and later Old Scholars FA)
Friends' (OSFA)
Kermandie (SFL)
Latrobe Saints
Trowutta-City
Castra
Branxholm (NEFU)
Ringarooma (NEFU)
Ross (ODFA)
North Hobart (TSL)
Railton
Scottsdale Crows (NEFU) folded at the end of last season as did the Branxholm Wanderers (NEFU)
The NEFU collapsed after a long association after 2017.
North Hobart are back playing in the State League, the "Hobart City" experiment was the absolute failure everyone warned it would be and is gone.
Couple of years ago Smithton Saints that played in the Darwin FA, NWFU, NTFL and NWFL renamed themselves as the Circular Head Giants to embrace that whole area on the far north western tip of Tasmania and not just Smithton town.

The last club to fade away completely in Sydney would be the old Blacktown Kangaroos, way back in the mid 90s.

This was their last season's results - a Blacktown Magic team was formed but was made up of NSW/ACTAFL development officers based out of the Giants HQ at Doonside, so an inorganic representation of what once was.

Katoomba-Lithgow Mountain Lions existed for 2 years in the early 00s - a community effort to bring footy to the Blue Mountains. Claimed to have the highest altitude home ground at the unfortunately named Browntown Oval.

Neither the Sydney, or Central West league would accept them into their comps due to geographical location - too far to travel etc. They played teams having the bye in both grades when they could and folded not long after. Phil Doyle, a long time poster on here was behind the club and busted his butt to get them exposure.

Was Kealba Green Gully one team, or did you mean to mention them as two: Kealba, Green Gully?

I only have a reference for a Kealba FC.

Also do you happen to know, prior to the WRFL coming about in 2000, which clubs were in the FDFL and which were in the WSFL?

I've never been able to find out!
I played for Kealba. Played 3 seasons there before the club just dissolved. Still to this day no idea what happened but rumour is the secretary ran off with all the club funds!

Wakool's managed to come back in 2017, but they've had to revise the points system for them, because they're so reliant on players coming from outside of Wakool.
Wakool gone for good. I fear for the future of Golden Rivers if they insist on playing Seniors & reserves. A real struggle for most clubs to find the 50 blokes needed to field two mens teams.
