West Adelaide Hellas Soccer Club

 

The West Adelaide Soccer Club can reflect on an extraordinary fine history.  The roots of the club date back to 1945.  However, when the club was re-constituted in 1961 and took on the familiar and famous blue and white stripes, it was at that point that the club came into its own. From 1961 to 1977, the club achieved enormous success at state level and was crowned unofficial Australian Champions in the late 1960’s.  In 1977, it was successful in gaining inclusion to the newly formed National Soccer League and in 1978 West Adelaide became the official Australian Champions where they drew with Adelaide City in the last game of the season at Hindmarsh Stadium in front of 16,251 fans to take out the national crown.  The club exited the NSL in 1999 and it wasn’t until 2008 that the club became part of the local soccer scene once more.  Beginning in the 3rd division in 2008, the club has grown to now be top of the National Premier league, the elite league in State. It has 3 senior teams, 300 juniors playing in 24 teams in the Junior Premier League, 4 women’s teams in NPL women’s competition and 3 teams in the Sunday amateur league where the club plays as West Adelaide Raptors. The West Adelaide family continues to grow.

Off the field the club has made enormous strides. The club has secured from the State Government in 2014 a 28,000m2 parcel of land on Churchill Road that once housed the Kilburn Primary School. The club has secured a $500,000 grant to begin construction on what will be the club’s home for the future. The club is poised to begin occupying the site in late 2015 and commence construction shortly afterwards.    The club’s Park Tce North Adelaide junior grounds are being redeveloped, and the club is partnering with Renewal SA and the Adelaide City Council to bring to life a $5m rejuvenation.  Renewal SA has is committed over $700,000 in building new club rooms for our junior arm.  With a professional and dedicated team of administrators, the club is looking forward to a bright future.

GAZA Sports and Community Club

 

gaza

 

 

The Eagles were first formed in 1903, initially been known as Kobandilla, but by 1909 the name had been changed and the Klemzig Football Club was formed. It played for three seasons, first blue and white, then red, white and blue, with its last year being spent in the Adelaide and Suburban Association.

In 1916, the middle of World War I, there was considerable talk about the government changing the names of towns which had German associations. Then in 1917 it was gazetted that all towns in South Australia with German names would be changed on January 10th, 1918, to suitable Australian names.

Subsequently, Klemzig was changed to Gaza in recognition to the servicemen who had been interred at the Gaza War Cemetery. Units of the Light Horse fought many battles in the Gaza area, one of the oldest cities in the world, before eventually winning the day.

The Gaza Football Club was founded in 1903, then on December 12th, 1935, the name of the suburb reverted to Klemzig. After World War II the members of the Gaza football and cricket clubs voted unanimously at an AGM to retain the name Gaza in perpetuity.  Gaza is one of the four remaining inaugural members of the original North Adelaide District Association.

Gaza won its first premiership in 1926 when players changed in a tin shed behind the O. G. Hotel. It was the jubilee premier of A2 in 1951 and premiers again in 1960. After the club joined the SAAFL in 1963 in A3 division, taking out the premiership in their first season to move up to A2 division. They moved between A2 and A3, with the club taking our a triple premiership in 1975 (A, B an C Grade all Premiers in A3, A3 reserve and A9 respectively) In 1990 a feat that had eluded the club previously was achieved in 1990 and won promotion to A1 division for the first time. It was a 3 year stint in this division before being relegated back to A2, but with yet another A2 Premiership in 2000, the club was elevated back to A1 and then celebrated the Division 1 Premiership in 2003, it’s Centenary year. This feat was repeated in 2012. They have remained in A1 up to season end 2014.

Many elite footballers have begun their football at Gaza, playing VFL (prior to the inauguration of AFL), SANFL and more recently AFL. Well-known character and AFL player, Darren Jarman, won an under 16 medal playing for the Club in 1983. His brother Andrew also played in the juniors before commencing his career with North Adelaide Football Club and ultimately rising to the AFL. He then returned in 2000 to play and coach the club. Additionally the Jarman brothers’ father, Dennis was the A2 division medalist with the club in 1971.

Mid 1960’s, the Gaza Football Club and Gaza Cricket Club, amalgamated to form the Gaza Sports and Social Club, which has evolved into the club we have today, catering for senior and junior football, senior and junior cricket as well as competition darts and eightball.

The club has a strong and loyal membership base and equally embraces the Klemzig community and history. Gaza is proud to welcome our new long-term sponsor and partnership with Rachel Lawrie of Ray White and is looking forward to building a better future for the Klemzig community with her.
