History

Brief History

Hampton Rovers first started as an organised activity for the 1st Hampton Scout group in 1918. The Scout Group's main theme was to promote football as a team game and encourage self-confidence, self-control and the desire of a player to improve his ability. This is similar to the current philosophy used by Hampton Rovers today.

Initially in 1920, games were played socially against other Scout Groups, but as the incentive to play in a higher standard became apparent, another competition was sought. The club as we know it today was established in 1929.

In 1931 Hampton Rovers was admitted to the Metropolitan Football League and played Richmond United at Burnley in its first game.

In 1933 the club joined the Victorian Amateur Football Association (a competition in which the club still participates today) and changed the colours to the current Green & Gold.

The club won the A Section Premiership in 1951 and in doing so, became the first club to win flags in all four senior sections of the VAFA. In total, the club has claimed nine senior premierships including back-to-back wins in 1946-47 and 2013-14.

1963 saw the club move from Ludstone Street to our present home on the corner of David Street and Bluff Road. In 2002 this ground was formally named “Boss James Reserve” in memory of the club's founder.

In 1979 the club started its youth policy by introducing Junior Grades. The aims were to provide an extensive link with the local community and a development scheme and feeder base for the senior sides. Since then 34 Junior premierships as well as 13 lightning premierships have resulted and the club's future is assured.

Hampton Rovers has maintained an honest and hard-working approach to its administration and has a deeply etched tradition, not only with the VAFA and MSJFL, but with the community at large. The club also maintains a high profile with the local media.

Every attempt is made to make everyone welcome at Hampton Rovers, not only as players, but also as helpers and supporters. In return we ask that you give 100% commitment towards our continued success, both on and off the field, respect and carry out all directions and adhere to the Code of Ethics.
