A special video dedicated to the old Fitzroy Lions Football Club from the Australian (Victorian) Football Football League
Fitzroy formed in the days of the VFA in 1883 and were one of the original 8 breakaway clubs to form the VFL in 1897
(the VFL would later became the AFL in 1990)
During their glory years Fitzroy won 8 premireships (Grand Finals) in 1898, 1899, 1904, 1905, 1913, 1916, 1922 and their last in 1944 during World War 2.
The club were known as the Gorilas, the Maroons and finally the Lions but sadly after 1944, Fitzroy were to never win another premireship and had limited success and finals during the 1950s to the 1990s when the club finally succumed to the financial pressures of the league and merged with the Brisbane Bears to form the Brisbane Lions in the end of the 1996 season.
The club as the Brisbane Lions has won 3 Premireships during the years 2001 to 2003 and the memory of the old Fitzroy Lions lives on in the Brisbane Lions club song...
"We will always fight for victory, like Fitzroy and Bears of old".
Got the images from Full Points Footy site and also from the footy Jumpers Site some of the best Fitzroy jumpers.
Also I would like to thank a friend on YouTube here for giving me the club song just today, thank you so much mate!!!!
