Lets UNITE the Gully Spirit as we strive for the Ultimate success in Division 3


Respect, Excellence, Discipline, Engagement, Responsibility



The Ferntree Gully Eagles Football Club is a proud and passionate club. Our history goes back over 100 years; through droughts and depressions, through good times and bad; our club and its people have endured it all. We must take pride in what those who have come before us have done. They have sacrificed so much and without them there is no History of the Ferntree Gully Eagles Football club. They have forged the legacy that is Ferntree Gully - Pride and Passion. Today we wear our jumper with pride and in doing so we will entrench ourselves in the History of this great club.

Ferntree Gully Football & Netball Club: One Club; One Vision – a NEW Era...

FERNTREE GULLY FOOTBALL & NETBALL CLUB is a concept that brings together Ferntree Gully Football Club’s Senior, Junior, and affiliated Auskick centres into a “One Club Solution”. It is a fully integrated approach providing a seamless continual pathway for all children and young people in the Ferntree Gully and neighbouring communities wishing to play Australian Rules Football including Auskick, Junior Footy, Girls Footy, AllAbilities Footy, Senior Footy; and extends to those in our community wishing to play Netball. Building on the already existing affiliation between the clubs, we are evolving and now enter into the next phase – building on the past, creating a NEW landscape and a stronger, attractive and sustainable future. This is the basis of the development of FERNTREE GULLY FOOTBALL & NETBALL CLUB.

Vale Geoff 'Rover' Barker

The Football Club was saddened with the recent passing of a club great in Geoff Barker

Rover' as he was affectionately known started his career with the Gully back in the 1950's where he played in the 1957 u16 Premiership. He would go onto to play 200+ Games at the Gully before taking on several coaching roles nurturing many juniors into the senior ranks.

Rover was inducted in the 'inaugural' Hall of Fame list in 2006. He was a Life Member which was a great reflection of the amount of time and effort he put into the club.

He will never be forgotten and will be always a Gully Great

RIP Geoff Barker.

The Members of the Ferntree Gully Eagles Football Club are saddened by the recent Passing of Life Member and Hall of Fame inductee, Don Downs.

Don was a champion player with the club through the late 40’s and 50’s. Premiership Player in 1949 and 57. Was a Best & Fairest winner in the 50’s and invited to play with Richmond in the VFL as reported in the Argus newspaper.

Our condolences go out to the Downes family who have been a member of the local Gully community for over 70 years.

Bob Campbell once described Don Downes to be one of the Greatest to have pulled on a Gully Jumper.


The Members of the Ferntree Gully Eagles Football Club are saddened by the recent passing of Life Member and Premiership President, Brian Gunn

Brian was a tireless worker for the Football club through the 80's decade who put in hours and hours of work with his greatest accomplishment - winning the 1987 1st XVIII Premiership.

Brian continued his support for the club every week up in the 'Old Fellas' balcony room.

He will be sorely missed, our sincere condolences to the Gunn Family.

Seen here below with the 1987 premiership cup in between two Gully stalwarts Gary Hill and Gary Stephens.

RIP Brian Gunn
