Gawler Football Club

The Gawler Football Club was founded on 21 August 1868.[4] It was a foundation club of the South Australian Football Association (later renamed SANFL). It had a period of hiatus from the end of 1880 to 1886 when the club split into Athenian and Havelock. The clubs joined together again for the 1887 season along with Albion. However, in 1890 the club finished bottom and decided to leave the SAFA and form its own league.[5]
