Over the years there have been many, many clubs in a senior division that have come and gone. As well, there probably have been junior clubs that have bitten the dust over the years but they are a lot harder to identify. At least we have the media and to a certain extent old Football Records to secure our information from.
Here is a list we quickly put together of the clubs that we know of that no longer exist:
South Sydney, Sydney (Naval), West Sydney, Darlington, Glebe, East Hills, Rosebery, Lauriston Park, Newtown, Randwick, St Peters, Liverpool, Bankstown, Bankstown Sports, Carlton, Botany, Ashfield, Paddington, Eastern Suburbs, Railways, Tramways, Teachers College, Redfern, YMCA, Ashfield, Alexandria, St Ives, Salasians, Parramatta, Blacktown, RAAF, Illawarra, Hawkesbury Ag College, Mt Druitt, Penshurst, Combined Services, Ermington.
Some of these clubs were in the Metropolitan National Football Association (MANFA), some participated in the 1880s and in the early part of the last century.
Also, the grounds the game is and has been played on in Sydney; there must be hundreds of them.
