The Juniors play at Tom Perrott Reserve on McCabe St. Teams from Year 3 to Year 10 play every Sunday and train usually once a week from 4.30 to 5.30. The Home & Away season begins in late April, and training starts April. You can register here.

Over 110 Years of tradition

In 1906, two years before Richmond joined the VFL and 20 years before Claremont Football Club played its first game, there was a football club in Mosman Park. The team had the less than inspiring name of The Cottesloe Second Rate Football Club, and games were played at Davis Oval, affectionately known as the “Prickle Patch” by the players.

During the World Wars, footy took a back seat but in 1946 the club was revived and was reborn as the Mosman Park Football Club. In 1980, the seniors moved to new headquarters at Tom Perrott Reserve, while the juniors kept playing at Mann and Davis Ovals.

In the last few years, the club has grown bigger than ever. In 2010, the juniors joined the seniors at Tom Perrott, to make room for younger kids at Mann and Davis playing Auskick, which continues to get more and more popular among the local girls and boys.

THE CLUB SONG

No-one can remember who wrote it or when it started but the players wearing red and black have sung this song proudly for many years:

The Mossie boys are happy.

The Mossie boys are free.

The Mossie boys are jolly good boys,

jolly good company,

We never fight or quarrel.

We never disagree.

We all come down when (name) says,

come have a kick with me.
