St. Bernard's



Although St. Bernard’s College, Essendon, had a strong football tradition, its small size (fewer than 300 students) tended to militate against it when it came to fielding competitive school teams. In 1961, however, it was blessed with an amazingly talented group of young footballers who defied both the opposition and the odds to win the coveted Associated Catholic Schools premiership. Two years later, many of these same players formed the nucleus of the inaugural St. Bernard’s Old Collegians side which lined up in E Section of the VAFA, and which further enhanced the school’s reputation by winning the premiership at the first time of asking. Grand final opponents Glenhuntly had been in the VAFA since 1926, but it was St. Bernard’s who played with the assurance of veterans in winning comfortably by 20 points, 13.19 (97) to 11.11 (77).
