THE PIONEERS AND THE FOOTBALL CLUB

The descendants of the early pioneers of Vermont have had a big influence on

the Club from its inception until the present day.

In 1862, David Boyle selected 58 acres on Scotchmans Hill. Building his

house on the corner of what is now Canterbury and Mount Pleasant Roads.

Lou Boyle, a foundation member of the Club, a player in the 1920 team and

our first Life Member, his cousins the three Boyle brothers Jim, Fred and

Len, were members of the Committee and players in the late 1920's early

1930's their younger brother Andrew who played in the lat 1940's winning the

Eastern Suburban Best and Fairest in 1949. Andrew's son Ray played in the

1970's. Their cousin Norm Boyle played from 1935 till 1939. Another

cousin, Lou Cornell, a Committee member and player over many years were some

of David Boyle's descendants.

John McClare was born in Ireland in 1828 and married 18 year old Mary Madden

in Galway, they emigrated to Australia, arriving in 1855. Rather than ride

on a bullock dray Mary McClare walked from Port Melbourne to Air Hill (now

Mitcham).

In 1856 they purchased fifty acres of land in Delaneys Road, (now Canterbury

Road). John McClare died in 1926 at the age of ninety eight. Their

descendants have had a big input into the Club over its 70 odd years.

Pat, Jack, Bill and Frank, were all players and members of the Committee in

the 1920 - 1940 era.

Cousin Len played in the 1930's and his two sons Norm and Barry playing in

the 1960's - 1970's.

The former Secretary, Maureen Scott, daughter of Jack McClare were some of

their family associated with the Club.

Abraham Rooks arrived from Cambridgeshire, England in 1862 and settled on

Damper Creek, selected 79 acres and after 10 years residence, acquired full

title to it for 80 Pounds ($160).

Marrying Emily Kennard, they built their home on the North East corner of

Rooks and Canterbury Roads.

One of his descendants Aubrey Rooks, played football for Vermont up until

1929 when he left the district seeking work. On returning after the

depression he became a committee member, serving until the early 1950's.

Aubrey often told how his grandfather donated a bush block on the corner of

Canterbury and Terrara Roads to the people of Vermont for a cricket and

recreation ground.

The land was all cleared by hand, the trees were grubbed out, cut up with

axe and crosscut saw, the land ploughed and levelled using horse drawn

ploughs, scoops, harrows and rollers.

With the timber taken from the land, a post and rail fence was erected

around the boundary. After the natural grasses had regrown, this was kept

cut by horse drawn mowers. All of this work was done voluntarily by the

local men. Two of the men known to have worked on this project were Mr.

Pat D'Arcy and Mr. Norm Williamson.

Some years after the establishment of the ground a dummy or driving section

of a cable tram was acquired and set up under the trees where the present

pavilion stands. This corner was for years know as Tram Corner.

Two more of Abraham Rooks descendants to belong to the Football Club were

Aub's brothers Dick and Gordon who were trainers in the 1940's. Gordon was

head trainer in the first Premiership side of 1955.

The Vermont Football Club was first formed in late 1919 early 1920 thanks

greatly to the efforts of local orchardist, Charlie Wallace, who became

President, Secretary George Binstead and Treasurer Jack Corr (later to

become Mayor of Ringwood).

In May of 1920, Vermont played its first match against Warrandyte in the

Reporter District Football Association. The match was played at home and

Vermont had a wonderful victory 15-17 to 1-1, even though they wore the

colours Red and Blue. The colours Purple with a Gold "V" were adopted as

the Club colours at a meeting in 1919/20 but the jumpers and sox could not

be made in time for the first match. The red and blue jumpers were hired -

Vermont is one of the few Clubs that has never changed its colours although

the design has been changed.

Vermont's first Captain was Joe Kiker, who had come from Mitcham after

playing there for a number of seasons including their 1914 Premiership. Joe

also played for Hawthorn in 1914 and Richmond in 1909. In those days players

regularly changed Clubs and often played in more than one competition at a

time. Joe moved on to Coach Ringwood in 1921.

J. Kiker (Capt), F. Finch, E. Stewart, F. Peterson, the four Mau brothers,

P. Kenny, W. Tuck, S. Willcox, W. Shambrook, W. Hutton, L. Boyle, H. Jacobs,

A. Aumann, H. Budge and A. Arnall were members of the first team.

Vermont's first VFL player came from this team when F. Peterson layed 5

games with Collingwood in 1921. Interestingly, the W. Shambrook mentioned

is directly related to 1980's star half back flanker, Rod Shambrook .

It was a very successful entry into competition football, only missing out

on the finals due to a defeat in the last home and away game by Mitcham.

Canterbury were premiers. 1921 however proved to be even a more memorable

year for a number of first time events -

• Vermont played in its new jumpers, the present day colours of purple

and gold. According to the late Jack Corr, who purchased the first set of

jumpers, purple and gold were the "Royal" colours and very popular at the

time.

• On the 7th May, the Club occupied the almost completed new dressing

rooms (located behind Terrara Road goals_ it was a grand day especially as

the home side went on to soundly defeat Box Hill.

• That day also saw the appearance of Vermont's very fist Junior side.

Unfortunately, the enthusiasm did not match their skill and after eight big

losses they withdrew from the competition.

AroFlo job management software is designed by a tradie, for other tradies.

It’s been specifically created to meet the unique needs of the trades, field services, maintenance and project-based industries.

Back in 1998, company founder and director Guy Arrowsmith was working as an electrician. But Guy had a vision. He clearly identified a gap in the market for a job  management system that addressed the difficulties faced by tradies like himself. So in typical Arrowsmith style, Guy used his ingenuity and initiative to build the solution he himself was after.

Guy designed a complete business management solution that gives users a central port of call to manage all jobs and projects – from the initial query, through to final invoicing.

Track jobs, schedule staff, record billable hours, order materials, check compliance requirements, send invoices, take payments, business reports…all that, and so much more.

AroFlo has now grown to become one of the most respected and trusted job management systems on the market.

Let AroFlo transform your business. And your life.
