COBURG TIGERS

TEAM LIST                 DRAW-RESULTS

 

 

Coburg Football Club was established in 1891.  They joined the VFA/VFL in 1925. They have played in 15 Grand Finals, being premiers in 1926, 1927, 1928, 1970, 1974, 1979, 1988 and 1989.

Coburg aligned with Richmond Football Club at the beginning of 2001.  They are now known as The Coburg Tigers, and they wear Richmondís black jumper with a yellow sash as an alternative strip, still playing the majority of games in their traditional navy blue with a red sash.

In the inaugural season they took a while to gel, but after a shaky start found success.  They won the last four games of the season to finish with a record of eleven wins and nine losses, to make it  into the finals for the first time in a decade.

Coburg players had individual success in their first season too.  Richmond player Ezra Poyas won the JJ Liston Medal for the VFLís best and fairest player.  Coburg player Kristian De Pasquale won the Fothergill-Round medal as the best player under 21 in the VFL, as well as being chosen in the Victorian representative side that played South Australia.

In the second year they had a record of sixteen wins four losses, and one win away from the grand final.  Backman Dean Talbot was runner up in the JJ Liston medal.

With a solid core of players and growing confidence Coburg Tigers are  looking to build on their early success and go one further in 2003.
