The History of Glenroy FC
Glenroy Football Club is an Australian rules football club located 14 km north of Melbourne in the suburb of Glenroy.
The club was founded in 1946 and affiliated with the Essendon District Football League.
The club fields 2 open age, 1 under 19.5 and 8 junior teams.
Glenroy are known as the Wallabies or Roys and wear a red jumper with a white sash.
The club enjoys strong community support from a range of small businesses and institutions.
Their last B-Grade premiership (before 2017) in 2008 resulted in their promotion to A-Grade under former premiership player Ash Manning.
Due to a mass exodus of player personnel, Glenroy's young list struggled to match it with the hardened quality opposition in 2009.
In 2010, former Northcote Park veteran Brett Jeffrey took the reins of player coach. The club had an up and down year, finally settling for 6th position and failing to make the finals. In 2012 Former Carlton Legend & Captain Lance Whitnall took over as playing coach. In his second year he took Glenroy to the 2013 B grade Grand Final only to just fall short of winning the game.
In 2017 in his second season as Senior coach, Ross Terranova took the senior side to a long awaited division one premiership..
