History

  • Founded in 1901 the Walkerville Football Club is one of only six Amateur Clubs, three of which have amalgamated, to reach 100 years.
  • First games were played opposite the Buckingham Arms in the parklands until 1911 when the club moved to its current location then known as Pockers Paddock.
  • In 1921 the club became part of the newly formed North Adelaide District Association and won 3 of the first 5 premierships.
  • In 1936 the Walkerville Football Club began playing in the South Australian Amateur Football League (SAAFL) until incorporating with North Adelaide Reserves (formerly Thompsons) in 1980 and joining the South Australian Football Association, returning to SAAFL in 1990.
  • In winning the 1992 A4 Premiership the club became only the second club in SAAFL history to win premierships in all grades from A1 to A6.
  • The Walkerville Football Club has seen a number of changes to its colour scheme, red and white vertical stripes in 1901, changing to chocolate with a blue 'V' trim by 1936 until 1953 when brown and blue vertical stripes were all the rage.  In 1955 the colours changed again to Royal Blue with a White 'V' but 1959 was the year for white sashes!  Blue and White vertical stripes were worn from 1974-78 but for the benefit of colour television in 1979-80 an all White strip was preferred!  1981 saw unchartered territory in fashion for Walkerville with the introduction of Royal Blue and White hoops.
  • A new look, but retaining the same style of the past 20 years takes the Walkerville guernsey with Navy Blue and White hoops into its second century as an historical Football Club.
