Old Melburnians Football Club

In 1920 the club had one team but today we have four with over 100 players regularly playing for the club. The club was no doubt formed in order to give students leaving MGS an opportunity to play football. This is still probably the fundamental reason for the club's existence and the formation of an Under 19's side in the early 1980's has afforded school leavers with even better opportunities today.

Most people who have played with the OM's for a few seasons or more have derived great benefit from both on field and off field activities. All have made life long friends, some met girlfriends or even wives, and others have been able to pursue business opportunities which may not have otherwise In 1920 the club had one team but today we have four with over 100 players regularly playing for the club.

Most people who have played with the OM's for a few seasons or more have derived great benefit from both on field and off field activities. All have made life long friends, some met girlfriends or even wives, and others have been able to pursue business opportunities which may not have otherwise arisen.

Football clubs also build character and in today's society with high rates of youth suicide, drug, crime problems and simply the difficulty that young people have in finding employment means that ours and other clubs can have an even greater impact and surely have a greater responsibility.

We also have a responsibility to the people who founded the OMFC and all the administrators, players and members who have supported the club in the past 81 years. We must ensure that the opportunities that they and we had are still offered to school leavers and other players alike. Let us all hope that our great club continues and prospers for the next 81 years and beyond.
