Finucane Island 1967-1986

Finucane Island Football Club was formed by Wally Podmore, Doug O’Brien and Norm Bradbury in 1967.

The team colours were originally green and gold, and changed to Essendon colours black and red later on.

The club joined the De Grey Football Association on 13 April 1969, and was the first to appoint a woman club official in 1973.

Unfortunately the club never won a premiership and disbanded in 1986.
