Club History

 

In 1987 Renown Park, St. Dominics and St. Peters YCW football clubs amalgamated to form the Fitzroy Football Club, playing in the uniform of the then VFL club of the same name. At the time of the amalgamation, St. Dominic’s had slipped from an A1 club to A3, and Renown Park and St. Peter’s were both languishing in A6. At the end of the 1996 season the club was in financial crisis due to overinvestment in poker machines and went into liquidation, but a new board of management restructured its finances, and the Club continued to field three senior teams and juniors. The record holder for games played is Sid OLeary.
