Willaston 'Donnybrooks' Football Club

Become A Sponsor

Presidents Message

Our club is one of the most iconic sporting clubs in Gawler, South Australia. We founded in 1889 by the working-class hands of those in North Para River clay pits.

Our club still holds strong working-class values through its supporter and membership base. Many volunteers, sponsors and members of the community provide time, effort and support to make Willaston Football Club a successful community organisation.

Now a part of the Barossa, Light and Gawler Football Association (BLGFA), Willaston Football Club has experienced premiership success throughout its history, including 22 senior premierships, last being in 1999.

We value our junior development and Women’s Football program as we have had recent success in this area. Our U17.5 teams won premierships in 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2022 and U15 won in 2017, 2022 and 2023. Our Senior Women’s team have played in five Grand Finals in a row winning in 2020 and 2022 also our U13 girls winning their first premiership in 2023.

Our club has also seen many of our players establish successful football careers with a strong number of players experiencing SANFL football as well as some lucky enough to make careers in the AFL/ AFLW system. In season 2023 our first ever BLGW player to play AFLW was our very own Caitlin Wendland.

In 2024, we look to grow upon our success. Particularly, the club looks to increase playing membership, right through from U9s to the senior teams. The growth of women’s football will see us field increased team sizes for U10, U13, U16 and senior team. We also aim to foster and grow our successful partnership with our affiliate clubs – Willaston Netball Club (WNC), Willaston Cricket Club (WCC) and the Willaston Country and Music Club (WCMC).

This year has been a very successful year in all areas of our football club as we have maintained good club structure which enabled us to set achievable goals moving forward, our goals are:

·Willaston Football Club to win our 23rd Senior A Grade Premiership within 3 years.

·To continue to grow and develop our junior grades from U9s to U17.5 including women’s football.

·Infrastructure improvements; We have completed one of our many goals, new LED Oval Lights. Now we are focusing on a brand new precinct which includes new uni sex changerooms and new netball courts through government grants and collaborating closely with the Town of Gawler through a working group that has been formed.

These are just some of many goals which we have set and are continuing to achieve through our journey as a club. With your generous support and our club structures in place I am very confident that the Donnybrooks will achieve the goals we set out in the future moving forward.

Thank you for your generosity & support for season 2024.
