Waverley Blues Football & Netball Club History

The Mount Waverley Football Club (MWFC) was formed in 1925 and first played in red jumpers with a white sash before adopting its familiar navy blue jumpers with the white monogram (similar to today's Carlton jumper). Apart from a brief disbanding in 1929-1935 the club has enjoyed a successful history at the Mount Reserve in Charles Street Mt.Waverley.

MWFC played in the South Eastern Football League and won a premiership in 1964. As the SEFSL grew MWFC played all it's games in it's top Division. The SEFSL became the Southern League and MWFC continued in First Division until 1993.

In 1994 the club merged with the Burwood Football Club, a Second Division Southern League Club. The Mount Waverley Burwood Football Club participated in First Division in the Southern League from 1994 - 1997.

The Waverley Football Club (WFC) was another club steeped in tradition. WFC was formed in 1908 and wore the familiar black & red stripes in the Victorian Football Association (VFA - a fore runner of today's VFL). Waverley Football Club had success in 1965 winning the Division One Premiership in that year. The club played at Central Reserve on the corner of Waverley and Springvale Road during the VFA years. WFC joined the Eastern Football League in 1991 and had moderate success from 1991 until 1998 and played its home games at Columbia Reserve.

During the 1998 season, the committees of both the Waverley & Mount Waverley Burwood Football Clubs discussed the possibility of joining forces to form a new dynamic club that would represent the Waverley district of the City of Monash. The Waverley Blues have won premierships in 2001 (Division 4 Eastern Football League), 2005 (Division 4 Eastern Football League) and 2008 (Division 3 Football League). Refer below for a full list of Senior, Reserves, Netball and Junior Premierships. 

The Waverley Blues Football club currently participates in Division 2 in the Eastern Football League. It's main home ground is still Mt Waverley Reserve, but we also play games at Pinewood and Tally Ho Reserves. 

In 2016 the Club launched its first ever Youth Girls football team in the under 16s and its first senior ladies netball team in the Netball EFL competition. The netball team won the Premiership in Division 3 in its first year. 

Looking forward the Club is hoping to increase the number of Junior teams (boys and girls) and senior women's netball teams. In 2017 we have plans to launch a Seniors Women's football team for the first time - so watch this space!
