City United Football Team 1950

August 1, 2016


The above photo appeared in The Shepparton News on Friday, July 22, page 53. The photo appeared with a story about the last surviving player in the team, who is in his 98th year.

I am familiar with this photo, as it has hung on my parents wall for many years. The team is the City United Grand Final Team of 1950. My father was in this team. He is in the front centre.

City United was formed when SPC and Shepparton East football clubs amalgamated and were admitted to the Goulburn Valley Football League in 1950. In their debut year, in the major league, they made it to the Grand Final. Even though they were defeated by Kyabram, I am sure that the year would have been considered to be a success.

My father continued to play for more years than was usual. I have vague memories of him going to play football on a Saturday afternoon.
