Western Border Football League - Brief History

Brief History

In 1964, after almost a decade of discussions, the Western District Football League in Victoria and the South-East & Border Football League in South Australia merged to form the Western Border Football League. The founding 12 clubs were Casterton, Coleraine, East Gambier, Hamilton, Hamilton Imperials, Heywood, Millicent, North Gambier, Penola, Portland, South Gambier and West Gambier.

Penola left and joined the Kowree-Naracoorte Football League in 1988, Coleraine left and joined the South West District Football League in 1995, leaving the 10 teams that are in the competition today. Some famous players that have played in the Western Border Football League have been Billy Picken, Matthew Clarke, Nick Daffy, Nathan Lovett-Murray and John Mossop.

In 2011 the Heywood Football Club left the Western Border Football League due to the club feeling it had not been as successful as other clubs in the league. Their first application to leave was rejected. Then were forced to go to higher levels VCFL to resolve issues between the League and the Heywood Football Netball Club.

In 2012 The Hamilton and Hamilton Imperials club decided to merge and compete in the Hampden Football Netball League for 2013. Portland also transferred to the Hampden Football Netball League for 2013.
