History of Gordon Junior Rugby Club

The original Gordon Rugby Football Club was founded in 1927 on Sydney’s North Shore, playing in the Metropolitan Junior Competitions and its home games were played on Roseville Chase Oval. The club was disbanded in 1930 and the following year, many of its players transferred to the newly formed Roseville Junior Rugby Union Football Club, whose home ground was Chatswood Oval. In the 1935 season, the club won the Metropolitan Junior Club Championship, the Kentwell Cup and its second grade, the Bourke Cup.

Following its success the senior club was admitted to the Grade Competition in 1936 and changed its name to the Gordon District Rugby Union Football Club, fielding four grade and two junior sides, which participated in the Metropolitan Junior Competition.

In 1949, the club adopted a new jersey incorporating the colours of the Gordon tartan and its club song “A Gordon for Me”, emphasising the strong Scottish influence within the club.
