Local Footy returns to its roots

In April, the Brighton Football Club celebrated their historic roots with a Heritage game. The “Back to Mangalore” game referenced their early days – the Club began as Mangalore Football Club in 1885. In 1996 the Club changed its name from Mangalore to Brighton Football Club but kept the Robins nickname and red and blue playing colours.

The Heritage Game was held at the Brighton Regional Sports Centre against the Claremont Football Club. It was a thrilling game with the local boys running away in the last quarter for a 46 point win. The day, full of catch ups with old footy mates and supporters who flooded through the gates, wouldn’t have been possible without the help of volunteers.
