History of Albury City Football Club
Albury City Soccer Club was established in 1974. Remarkably the senior team was runner up in the Championship that year and won the Cup by defeating Melrose Park Rangers 2-0 at Martin Park Wodonga (the home ground of the Wodonga Football Club).
The Club trained at Aloysious Park and played its initial home games at Aloysious Park and Jelbart Park. A new soccer field was later established on the corner of Kaylock Road and Moore Street Lavington, which became known as Jelbart Park No 2 and was the Club’s home ground for a number of years. The Club was subsequently relocated to its current location on the eastern side of Jelbart Park.
The Club fielded a senior team and an under 14’s team only in its first year.
As you will see from the names of the Inaugural Committee the Club was supported by the Albury Greek Community, which by and large made up its supporter base in the early years. This of course has changed over time, however the Club maintains its links to its roots through the annual Andronicos Cup & Ianotta Cup competitions.
Now renamed Albury City Football Club, it has continued to grow in Club members fielding teams from the age of 5 in the Miniroos competition all the way through to the O35’s, with the Club winning the Club Champions award in 2012, 2014, 2015 & 2016.
