ABOUT

CLUB HISTORY

The Parkside Junior Football Club was formed in 2005 by the Committee of the Alphington-Fairfield Auskick clinic as a result of strong demand from families seeking a junior football pathway in the local community around Pitcher Park in Alphington.

The Club started with its first Tackers team in the Yarra Junior Football League in the 2006 season. It has since added one team each year and now fields 14 teams from underage to Colts including 4 Girls' teams with just over 290 players. 

The Club celebrated its first two premierships in 2012 with the Under 12s and Under 15s both winning their grand finals.

The Club is also affiliated with the Alphington-Fairfield Auskick clinic, which has over 150 participants.

The Club is looking to continue to build a solid foundation to ensure a prosperous future.

PREMIERSHIPS

2012 was a breakthrough year with the Club picking up its first Premiership flags in the Under 15s and Under 12s.  The Under 13s and Under 11s were also runners up in 2012.  This was followed up in 2013 with the Under 15s winning our third premiership.

In 2014 our Under 14s did it again with their second premiership, having first won as Under 12s in 2012.

In 2015 our Under 11s won the premiership in Brown Division. The team won only 2 of their first 8 games for the season but barnstormed through the rest of the year, and then in a nail-biting Grand Final won with a goal in the last minute of the game.

Well done to all the teams.  Let’s build on these successes for 2017 and beyond.

CLUB SONG

To the tune of “Roll out the Barrels”:

They say we play like devils,
Red devils we certainly are,
They all fear Parkside,
against us they never get far,
We never give in and here is a red hot tip,
This is the year for Parkside and the premiership,
Who are, who are, who are we,
we are the team from PFC
Razzle dazzle yeah yeah yeah
Parkside Parkside yeah yeah yeah
P-A-R-K-S-I-D-E Parkside

200 CLUB

Our goal – to raise funds for the future upgrade of facilities at Pitcher Park.

The 200 Club has been established with the aim of raising $40,000 for the Club.  Membership to this “exclusive” club is open to the first 200 members and membership costs $200 for life. Members will be honoured on a membership board that has pride of place in the clubrooms.  Funds donated to the 200 Club will go expressly to a building fund, not consolidated revenue.

Funds have already been put to good use through the new concreted area in front of the canteen and joining the clubrooms, the extension of the canteen roof, the replacement of the coaches boxes and player interchange benches and the construction of a new timekeepers box and storage facility. The next stage of development is the construction of a new electronic scoreboard.
