Peninsula Football Association

The Peninsula Football Association was formed in 1988 after the withdrawal of the Nubeena Football Club from the Tasman Football Association.

The competition was among four clubs (Eaglehawk Neck, Nubeena, Port Arthur and Premaydena) and was completely amateur, umpired by players and former players, it also had no affiliation with any other senior football body within the State.
There were only two grounds in the competition (Nubeena and the Port Arthur Recreation Ground), therefore there were weekly double-headers at the host ground.
The best and fairest player in the Peninsula Football Association was awarded the A.V Noye Medal, whilst the premiership winner was awarded the A.V Noye Memorial Shield.
The Peninsula Football Association went into recess and promptly folded at the end of the 2001 season following the Premaydena Football Club's ongoing battle to find players became too great and the club folded.
As a result of the competition going out of business, all member clubs also closed down.
