The Old Scotch Football Club joined the Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA) in 1921. In 1992, the Club moved from Yarra Park (now the site of the Tennis Centre) to its present home at the Camberwell Sports Ground where it has become one of the premier sporting organisations within the City of Boroondara.
While maintaining a strong relationship with Scotch College, the Club has also forged strong links with Camberwell High School and the Camberwell Sharks who play in theYarra Junior Football League). In 2019 our last season of competition, Old Scotch won 3 premierships ! Our women’s team, the Stars did not lose a game winning the Division 1 final and our Men’s 2nd XVIII, the Premier B Reserves section premiership, again r the VAFA remaining undefeated throughout the season. But perhaps the biggest surprise of all was the Under 19 1st XVIII who won the Premier Section for the first time in 67 years. All our teams played finals, 2 players were voted competition best & fairest and we finished 2nd in VAFA Club Championship along with our return to the Men’s Premier Section.
Our vision is “to create an inspirational environment for the development of young people” and make Old Scotch a “destination club” for young people – men and women – from within the local community who wish to play Australian Rules Football. While on-field success is our key objective, the Club has also taken the decision to provide our players with access, should it be required, to welfare and support programs to deal with personal issues in a confidential and discrete manner. The Club has committed to meeting some of the up-front costs of these support programs.
As the Club celebrates it’s centenary year our need for additional funding and resourcing continues to be one of the Club’s greatest challenges as we seek to expand our presence within the local community. The Club is now seeking your financial support to enable us to:
We are absolutely committed to providing players and staff with the resources required to enjoy on-field success. Equally, our aim is to become a Club that young people want to be a part of and also be an active participant in the local community in both growing Australian Rules Football and encouraging and supporting healthy lifestyles.
Your support would be much appreciated and will greatly assist us in achieving our vision for the future.
