Ferntree Gully Football Netball Club

The Club is Looking for members for our NEW Coterie Group for Season 2017

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.

- 'It's not a right to represent this Club, it is a privilege' -

To all Past Players, Officials & Supporters.

The FERNTREE GULLY F.C. will be holding our 125yr Celebration Dinner dance on the 27th May 2017.

This date coincides with the week of our first ever game in 1892 

The event will celebrate 125yrs as a club, Hall of Fame inductions one to be elevated to Legend status and Best ever team for the past 50yrs to coincide with our time in the EFL (EDFL).

It would be great to see as many people there as possible including current players and staff as well.

I urge all of you to contact those you played or officiated with and try and get a table together of 10.

We have 3 months of coordinating this night so the sooner we can get your RSVP the better to organise your tables.

It will be a black tie event and music after formailities.

This will be one of our last MAJOR events for sometime so lets get together and celebrate The GULLY!.

We play Templestowe at Home that day and will be wearing a new Heriatge Jumper.

The Event will be at the Knox Italian Club in Karoo rd Rowville. Only 5 min drive from the Footy 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.

Funeral will be Thurs 3/11/16 At Le Pines FTG @ 2.30

Wake back at Gully Clubrooms following 3.30 - 6pm
