Collegians Football Club - Celebrating 130 Years

Men’s Seniors before the great wall of Premiership flags on display at the Collegians 130 years Ball

The Collegians Football Club community gathered at The Park, Albert Park on Saturday 23 July to celebrate 130 years. The night proved to be a spectacular celebration of their wonderful history and people. One wall at the back of the room was entirely covered by premiership flags - it looked magnificent, showcasing an impressive history.

Sporting legend Damien Fleming was guest speaker, and guests also heard from an array of Collegian legends about what the Club means to them, and the friendships forged from playing football at Collegians.

Also announced on the night was a team of the last 25 years as chosen by Mark Hibbins (OW1978), Rodney Nancarrow (OW1982) and Nick Roach (OW2000), who have all been heavily involved during those years. There were past players from many decades there on the night, lots of current players, and many parents of current players also attended.

Comments from the night highlighted just how good it was to catch up with old friends. Guests also said the night went far too fast and that they all wanted longer to catch up with other members.
