History of the Penguin Football Club (founded 1890)

The Penguin football Club has a history any supporter or player can be proud of. For the past 100+ years the community has been right behind the Two Blues, both on and off the field, through good and bad times, yet the final result – premierships – have been few and far between. However this has not dampened the enthusiasm of anyone as the club progresses into its second 100 years and the prospect of further glory on the field. Penguin has always relied on heavily on talent from its own area, the strong and sturdy farm lads who indulge in the great game when time allows.
(Bert Cragg 1989)
