Our great club played its first game of football on Saturday June 14th 1879 against the Chillwell 2nds. The side, captained by Cuddy, was unfortunately defeated six goals to two. Other games followed that year against East Geelong, Artillery, and Wanderers, with a draw against Artillery the best result.
It seems incredible that this was during the time Ned Kelly, and only 30 years after Anne Drysdale moved into the Coriyule mansion.
Now we are a thriving club with 500 active participants, ranging from Auskick to Men’s and Women’s senior teams.
We couldn’t let our 140th year pass by without a celebration, and have had a small group, of volunteers planning a spectacular event.
On Saturday June 22nd we will celebrate in style at the Geelong Football Club, with a two course meal, entertainment and some reminiscing.
