GUFC History – 1963

“The end of season Gala Days on the oval were enjoyed by all the families.
This was in the era before female soccer so the Mothers versus Fathers game was always a highlight.
One year Laurie Dean dressed as a woman including balloons for a pregnancy.
After running out onto the field with the mothers’ team to much laughter he ‘collapsed’ on the ground and was ‘rescued’ by some fathers who threw him into a wheelbarrow and wheeled him off the field.
A great joke enjoyed by everyone”

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.
