2001, when the Korumburra and Bena Football Clubs merged
Alberton Football League (AlbFL) since 2001
Blue, red and white
The amalgamation of Korumburra and Bena in 2001 brought together two clubs with long histories, stretching back in Korumburra’s case to before the first world war. Both clubs had entered the Alberton Football League in 1996, with Korumburra claiming a senior premiership at the second time of asking thanks to a grand final defeat of Inverloch Kongwak.
Following the merger the Bulldogs did well to reach the preliminary final on debut, but performances since have generally been more modest. In 2008 the seniors qualified for the finals in fifth place but bowed out of the premiership race at the first hurdle at the hands of Tarwin. Meanwhile the reserves reached the grand final only to lose to Wonthaggi Power.
