Club HISTORY

We are pleased to present a downloadable document detailing the history of our first 50 years.  Grab your copy here

 

We recommend that you download the history file rather than read it directly from the site as there are anchor links in the contents page that are only available if downloaded.

 


WHAT HAPPENED ON 25 JANUARY 2016?

 

Roselea  Football Club turned 50 - yes, we are proud to say that we  have been providing the opportunity for children and adults to play football for 50 years

 

Past members can contact us through the contact sheet on our website or call Stuart. Please let us have your email, telephone number and  address and we will let you know what is happening with our celebrations. We are particularly interested in contacting all of our life members.

 

Many thanks to Maria Wylie and Olive Collins for their contributions. These wonderful ladies whom are both Life Members had written our history up to 2000. The account was thought to have been lost, but Maria had a copy which she kindly loaned to us. The rest is history!!!

 

Did you know that one of the founders of the Club - Bill 'Pop" Williams was not only a life member of Roselea but also of GHFA. Bill was also recognised at one stage as the oldest referee in Australia and throughout the Commonwealth.

 

In 1968 the managers kit included 3 spare pairs of  laces in case of a mishap!

 

A new strip will be unveiled for the start of next season and  we are planning a number of events including a bush dance for MiniRoos families - ages 6-9; a 50th anniversary dinner dance and a trivia night.

 

We are also looking at collecting any memorabilia that people might have sitting in the cupboards to put on display. GHFA/NWSWF Premiers, Champions and Pennant winners banners will be hung up in the Harold West club house so if you have anything tucked away, please contact Stuart.
