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.

Re: Single Entity Teams That Have Disappeared In The Last 25 Years



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.

The Crows and Magpies should of been allowed to join the div 2.

Tasman should of joined the Scholars league

Scottsdale Magpies play in NTFA Division One, Scottsdale Crows were seriously ailing before they went down.
Unfortunately the scaling back of the timber industry up that way has all but decimated football in the NE.
Winnaleah should've been allowed to join the NTFA Division Two. Was whingeing from the other clubs that put a stop to that.
Bridport and St Helens (East Coast Swans) were allowed in though.
Tasman Peninsula were only around for a couple of years before they folded again.
Lack of players.
Football's been pretty much dead on the Tasman Peninsula for two decades since the old PFA and all their clubs folded in 2001.
Having bigger clubs like Lauderdale, Dodges Ferry, Sorell in that region tends to soak up most of the player numbers.
Playing numbers are becoming a huge issue in football here at the moment, there's nowhere near enough.
A club like Brighton (formerly Managalore), was seen as good enough to be competing in the Premier League against the old TFL sides plus current TSL sides, Kingborough and Lauderdale during the 2000s can't even garner enough players to fill a Colts or Reserves team and can barely fill a senior side.
And they are in the one of the biggest growth areas in the state encompassing Bridgewater, Gagebrook, Herdsmans Cove, Brighton, Pontville, Tea Tree, Mangalore, Bagdad, Broadmarsh, Pelham, Elderslie, Colebrook and the rest of the southern midlands!
