WYNDHAMVALE FOOTBALL CLUB
The Windermere Sports Club was formed in the 1970’s in the expanding Werribee suburb called “Windermere” which was later changed to Wyndhamvale. The change was made as there was a suburb called “Windermere” already in Ballarat
It was initially a junior football club which entered teams in the Western Suburban Football League.
This continued until 1985, when the Sports Club fielded a senior team in the Reserve Division of the WSFL. Half way through that season, due to the huge number of player response, a second team was entered in the same competition. The original team played off in the finals that year.
In the 1986 season Wyndhamvale fielded teams in U/10, U/12, U/14, U/16 and A3 and A2 senior teams. The club enjoyed great success with the U/10 team only losing one game, the U/12 team finishing runners up to Hoppers Crossing; U/14 were a little less successful losing more games than they won; U/16 after a slow start to the season and just failed to make the four; the A3 senior side won the pennant and the A2 just failed to make the four.
Wyndhamvale fielded a Senior team in GDFL in 1987.

The Club went into recess from 1995 to 1998 and resumed in season 1999.
The Club joined the Western Region Football League Division 2 in 1999.
After struggling through the early years in the WRFL, the Wyndhamvale Football Club surged towards the top end of the table with both Seniors and Reserves sides appearing in the final series since 2011. The Reserves making the Grand Final in 2012 and the Seniors back to back Preliminary Finals appearances in 2011 and 2012. Many of our Junior sides also have enjoyed finals appearances and in their first season in 2013, the Falcon’s Women’s side went deep into the final series of the Victorian Women’s Football League.
2014 sees the Club move to brand new facilities at the Wyndham Vale South Reserve. The Falcon’s will host a series of night games throughout the season under the impressive light towers at the ground and for the first time in the clubs history, a SuperRules team will take to the field. Through the exciting times ahead and an ever growing club, the Falcon’s look forward to writing many new chapters into its history.
Wyndhamvale Football Club’s ground is located at Wyndham Vale South Reserve, Cnr Black Forest Rd and McGrath Rd, Wyndham Vale (Melway 205 B8)
