VFA History

Hi everyone!

Is there anywhere where I can access results of the VFA/VFL over the years online? I know we can see who won the grand finals through the vfl website but is there anywhere for al the round by round scores and finals?

Thanks.

This from Big Footy might help you.

Victorian Football Association (VFA) results and ladders

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A few months ago I commenced compiling results and final ladders for the VFA (period 1877 to 1995) as I was unable to locate this information online. I started with 1896 and have published each result going back to 1890 so far, reconciling the final ladder to ensure accuracy. Going forward from 1897 I have published final ladders (and results of Finals matches from 1903) up to 1933 so far.

This is where I am up to so far: http://www.thegapchessclub.org.au/vfa/
(I'm using space on my chess club's website at present). The scope of what I am doing is set out on the methodology link from this page.

I am keen to know if anyone:
- has already compiled similar results, or has access to such results
- has any suggestions or comments that could improve what I have set out
- has found errors in what I have so far published online.

Thanks

Billy.
I suggest you contact our own Sandy F.C. Historian Wally Williams also our statts man for the past 25years and lifetime Zebra supporter.
Wally has put in many hours like yourself re VFA,/VFL history and numbered every Sandy player and past ladders etc.
This has taken Wally many hours and he may be able to help you.
I will talk with him pre match Sunday about this and if you are at the game come and talk to him although he doesn't get much free time during the game.
Regards ,

I have an XL sheet with the final scores from 1897 to the mid 1990s.
I can email this. Send PM. There is no link but only an XL sheet where I can email to whoever wants a copy.

Another good source was Full Points Footy but the site is now being upgraded and not online.

Very good site Billy. It features all the VFA clubs past and present. Even has ladder positions in club colours. Pity the site is down. Maybe the updated site could be even better ?

Oh, drool. Thanks CT. North Ballarat with a VFA logo?

I have a poster "VFA Community Football" "Have a great V.F.A. Sunday" which has the logos (as for Camberwell and Northcote on this site) for 22 clubs. Not included are Moorabbin and Berwick which had obviously gone by the time the undated poster was produced.

If you could somehow post them up here it would be great. This info is getting harder & harder to find. Like the www.footyjumpers.com website the vfa needs a resource of some sort.
