Welcome to the Glenroy Football Club. I'm privileged to be the sitting President and be able to share with you not just a passion for AFL but for our Mighty Roys.
Our great club was founded in 1946, making us one of the oldest clubs in the EDFL and ever since, we've been an integral part of the Glenroy community with huge local community support from business and residents alike.
We are a very hard-working and dedicated volunteer-based club, our senior club is currently in the Premier Division of the Essendon District Football League, and we pride ourselves on offering opportunities for not just senior players but juniors (both boys and girls) as well so we can foster the future stars of the sport.
We live and adhere to our club's code of conduct, morals, standards and values of being community minded, family friendly, inclusive, encouraging, respectful and above all else, a fun and welcoming environment to be involved with. The Glenroy Football Club committee, coaches and players hope you and your family will be a part of our community too.
Glenroy Football Club is an Australian rules football club located north of Melbourne in the suburb of Glenroy. Founded in 1946, the club is affiliated with the Essendon District Football League, fields two open age teams, one Under 19.5, and eight junior teams.
Sporting the great colours of Red & White, and with the Wallaby as its emblem, Glenroy Football Club is warmly referred to by all as The Mighty Roys.
With a traditional jumper of red with a white sash running from players hearts (left shoulder) to their right hip, the jumper design has never been altered from the club's first ever game in 1946 to today, giving the club a great sense of pride and tradition for members and supporters alike.
Having last won a Division 1 premiership in 2017, the club enjoys strong community support from a range of small businesses and institutions.
