We are a community based Over 35’s Australian Rules Football Club that competes in the Vic Metro Masters League.
Located in the northern suburbs of Melbourne we are based in the suburb of Coburg at Piranha Park (Coburg City Oval).
We currently have three teams: Supers (O35s), Masters and Legends (O50s) all competing in the Vic Metro Premier division.
Our motto is “Footy For Life” and it’s our philosophy that you are never too old to play football. Our purpose to provide mature age players the opportunity to participate and compete in a safe, well organised and enjoyable atmosphere as well encourage participation in physical activity to better manage health.
Supers Take Down The Reigning Premiers
All teams wore black armbands in round 2 as a sign of respect to Reserves player Brad Meadows who’s father passed away recently. Players from both clubs also observed a minutes silence in the main game as a sign of remembrance to the fallen ANZACs.
A 6-goal haul from Tony Lombardi saw the Supers defeat the reigning premiers in Williamstown by 34-points. The Supers produced a fantastic brand of football to outplay Williamstown for most of the game including keeping Williamstown scoreless in the first term. This prompted Williamstown officials to cite that it is possibly the first time ever they have been held scoreless in a first quarter of football in their entire history. For the record books this was also greatest winning margin by a Coburg Supers team over Williamstown.
The only downside in this match was the late withdrawal Adam Lewis on the eve of his 50th game.
The Reserves had a promising start but after half-time the game the game got away from them and went down by 46-points. Bruno Scuilli kicked a goal on debut.
Earlier in the day Gary Gardener kicked two goals in his 100th game for the club and he became the 19th member to join the exclusive group of players reaching the 100 game milestone. Peter Ikosidekas kicked one on debut but again after a promising first quarter the Over 50’s fell away to a comprehensive defeat to the tune of 101-points.
Round 3 sees Coburg travel to take on an undefeated Parkdale, while the Over 50's make the trek to Geelong for their away clash.
It's our 25th Anniversary and Coburg Superules Football Club is planning a celebration!

Darebin Mustangs Superules (2008 - 2012)

Then we would love for you to get in touch with the club and also spread the word to others who might not be on this mailing list or other communication channels. Please contact the Past Players Coordinator Allan Mathews on 0437 751 532 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The 25th Anniversary Celebration/Reunion is pencilled in for Saturday evening, 22 July 2017. Get in touch for more details.
The club is also interested in forming a Past Players Group which comprises of past players, coaches, officials and associates of the Club from over the years since being established in 1993 as a way to keep in touch, meet socially, attend matches and continue their proud support of the Club they wore the jumper for.
The Past Players Group would aim to maintain unity, protect the history and build on the traditions of the Club.
We would like to form this into an energetic and thriving group which has the can host social functions throughout the season, have regular opportunities to reunite and reminisce and celebrate the past
