Eastern Lions

Eastern Lions, formerly Waverley City and Old Scotch Waverley, are a stable club from Melbourne's Eastern suburbs that currently punches above it's weight in NPL One East.

More of their history can be found in this 40th Anniversary Dinner Dance Programme from 2003.

1974 World Cup Socceroo Jimmy Rooney can be found around the place on any match day carrying out coaching duties with both the junior and senior set-ups.

The clubrooms at Gardiner's Creek Reserve on Sixth Avenue in Burwood contain one of the best collections of photographs in Victorian football.
