The Ferntree Gully Football Club has produced some wonderful footballers over its 100 yr journey. From Henry Monk, Fred Lording, Thomas Poole in the beginning, to the strength of Myles Monk and Percy Beswicke at the turn of the 20th century before their careers with the Melbourne Football club . Prior to the great war and the stellar decade of the twenty's featuring players such as Mick Campbell, Paddy Gilchrist, The Picketts, Miles Sellars, Meredith and Max Newton. Through the catastrophic depression of the 30's with players such as Ted Beaumont, Wally Tew, Jim Campbell and The Round brothers. The resurgence of the 40's featured the likes of Don Downes, Dave Waters, Sharp, Paton and Sidebottom. The 50's brought class in the form of one man - Ray Priestley - recruited from Brunswick he would become a Gully Legend through this decade along with Bob Campbell, Barry Stuart, Bryan Mitchell and Bob DeCoite. The 60's brought back to back flags under the guidance of Billy Bragg with stars such as Johnny Milburn,  Frank McGowan, Dundas, John Gordon, Jimmy Kirkpatrick. The mid 60's brought great players in John & Peter Quinn, Ian Cameron, Hanrahan, Barker, Coleman & Piggot. During the 70's great locals came of age, Mastertoun, Price, Jimmy & Rob Turner, Hill, Batty, Bland, Campbell, Dockery, Feaver along with Milburn and the talented Ronnie Huy and Peter McKay. The 80's saw the establishment of our great facilities and with them came the likes of 'Bluey' McGrath, Morrow, Stephens, Coviello, Billy Mitchell, Hilton, Watson, Winters, Doherty and Johnny Colby. Through the 90's players such as Stephenson, Catalano, Johnson and Thomas stood out and with the turn of a new century the likes of Cassidy, Milburn, Sharp, Rawlings, Deiiso, Moore and Geonopoulos have continued the long list of great players for this Football Club. This is just a sample......
