Yeronga

Yeronga was established in 1928 by former members of Rocklea Junior Australian Football Club. The club’s original jumpers were royal blue with a white vee. During the 1930s Yeronga competed in the QANFL, getting as far as the grand final in 1932 and 1937, but losing on both occasions to Windsor. In the 1932 grand final it could be adjudged somewhat unfortunate in that it went down by 13 points despite enjoying rather more of the play and managing 22 scoring shots compared to 15.

After the war the club appears to have merged with, or assimilated, South Brisbane, whilst retaining the Yeronga name and colours. Over the next few decades, the club competed in various competitions, including the state league in 1945-6, from 1949 to 1952, and in 1957 and 1960.

Yeronga currently competes in Division One of AFL Queensland’s State Association.
