Fingal Valley

The Kangaroos have had something of a chequered history which has seen them endure a number of periods in recess but which has also spawned some noteworthy achievements. Since reforming after their most recent period in mothballs in 2002 the club has gone from strength to strength, with the seniors capturing  consecutive Northern Tasmanian Football Association division two premierships. In 2007 the ‘Roos went into their grand final clash with University Mowbray as underdogs, but won convincingly, while in 2008 they scored a slashing 25.13 (163) to 10.12 (72) grand final triumph over Tamar Cats. Consecutive losing grand finals in 2009 and 2010 followed, with a third coming in 2013 emphasising the 'Roos' status as one of the leading forces in the competition, but less than two years later this all counted for nothing as, one the eve of the 2015 football season, the club was forced to fold owing to a lack of players.
