GUFC’s 60th Year Celebrations – 2019

As many of you know season 2019 is GUFC’s 60th year.

At a recent meeting, the Management Committee approved a really exciting draft list of events to celebrate this wonderful milestone.

The celebrations will focus on our rich history and our special place in the Gymea Community as the “Family Club”. We will also look to celebrate the role volunteers play within GUFC past and present and our special place as a leader in diversity within football.

Oh yes and we hope you all will have lots of fun along the way!!!


GUFC History – The Beginning

Gymea Soccer Club commenced as Gymea Sports Club, which included soccer, rugby league, cricket, netball, athletics.  The first meeting for the Soccer Club was held in February 1960 with the elected officers being Cyril O’Neal as President, Ken Williams as Secretary and Bill Taylor as Treasurer. Seven teams were entered with the Sutherland Association.

Once the season commenced, the Committee ran into the problem that they had to provide transport as there were not many cars amongst the parents, but we had people that were willing to run the boys from one field to another, come back, pick up another, load and distribute them around the area right throughout the day.
