TWO TIMES TWO BLUES

Posted on - Latest News

Assumption College Old Collegians have joined with Prahran to return to the VAFA.
It previously fielded a team in the VAFA from 1964 until 1982 and has been negotiating for some time to return.
VAFA CEO Michael Sholly said that this partnership has a stronger design than the Ivanhoe/Assumption arrangement of the early 2000s, a deal that lacked the imprimatur of the College.
Assumption College Kilmore principal Michael Kenny and the Assumption College Kilmore Old Collegians Association have agreed to a heads of agreement to field a team from next year.
The team will be known as Prahran/Assumption and play nine games in Prahran jumpers and nine in the Assumption school jumper based at Toorak Park. Both guernseys feature royal and sky blue colours. The combine will compete in Division 3 next season and field three senior age teams and an Under 19s. There is a likelihood of at least one game at the College in Kilmore.
Prahran, a merged entity of the old VFA club Prahran and Southbank Amateur Football Club, is very much looking forward to the venture. Prahran president Kevin Matherson said the joint venture would help put the club on a level playing field with many clubs who have the benefit of a strong old boys network. Assumption, which has 26 old boys playing Premier VAFA football, has been a power-house in Associated Grammar Schools football for decades under the legendary Ray Carroll.
