Episode 32 - Footscray

 

In the second of three upcoming specials, we take a look at the history of Footscray Football Club (now Western Bulldogs). 

We headed out to Whitten Oval to chat to club historian Darren Arthur, who has a wealth of knowledge, not just about the club, but the suburb of Footscray itself. Join us as we talk about Footscray's formation and early days, through to their dominant VFA days to their admission to the VFL and their victory in the Championship of Victoria game. 

 

***please note, the audio for the interview is not great, apologies

Episode 30 - 1924

If any season we have covered so far deserved a dedicated podcast (Ala 93 the greatest season that was) I believe the 1924 season would be it. 

SO MUCH HAPPENED

to begin with we have a new finals system, we have the death of two important VFL people, There are coaches switching clubs (of have they???). The Collingwood board, not used to the lack of success, make some changes at the top. Fitzroy begin life without Freake and Parratt, but recruit a suitable replacement. There are goal post shaking scandals and debate about how many men can stand on the mark. And finally the season ends with an interesting phone call to Syd Barker and then the first Championship of Victoria Match. 

So much to listen too....
