Football was played locally in and around Shepparton from the early 1880s, it was not until the formation of Goulburn Valley District Football Association in 1894 that a coherent competitive framework for the sport emerged.
Shepparton was one of six founder members of the GVDFA. It won its first flag in 1899, followed by another four years later, and then from 1906 until the competition went into recess because of world war one it established a veritable premiership dynasty, going top no fewer than six times in nine seasons.
From 1911 until early in the 1913 season in particular, Shepparton was widely regarded, and indeed often described in the local press, as ‘invincible’. At the end of the 1913 season this evaluation was further enhanced when Shepparton beat South Bendigo by 3 points in a special challenge match for ‘the championship of the north’.
After world war one Shepparton continued to enjoy regular success, but they left the GVFL in 1939 because the league decided to change from a Wednesday competition to a Saturday. They joined the Central Goulburn Valley Football League and only returned to the GVFL in 1951.
In 1961 the club appointed Tom Hafey, a former back pocket player with Richmond, who preached a fast-paced, aggressive, highly team-orientated football. Hafey coached the club to a hattrick of flags before Richmond offered him the main coaching position in the VFL. Hafey made sure to sign the best young talent in the GVFL and in his second year got the Tigers a flag.
The Shepparton Football Netball Club still calls Deakin Reserve home and currently has four senior football teams and five senior netball teams entered in the GVFL.
We are a very proud club and welcome new players and members at every opportunity.
