The hard work by everyone involved in the club, both on and off the field has got some local press, with our local paper, the Progress Leader running a story on the Canterbury Football Club’s continued growth a few weeks ago prior to our first game against Richmond Central.

Canterbury continues to build – on the park and off

ANZAC Day

18119354_1330693983683635_6910101850383940527_nWith ANZAC Day almost upon us, it’s worth reflecting on Canterbury FC’s people who served in WW1.

On March 22, 1915, the club held its annual meeting at the Canterbury Theatre in Maling Rd. Only days before, the ANZACs had fought a huge battle in Flanders, Belgium, which left Flanders devastated. Red, yellow & black colours were on houses and buildings all over Australia in a show of solidarity for the people of Belgium. In this spirit, Canterbury FC decided to adopt the Belgian flag for its jumper, and the club took the field from 1915 in this strip originally with yellow as the centre panel (the current design with black in the middle is from 1949).
