Club History

The Glasshouse Hinterland Lions was formed and incorporated in November 1996. 1997 saw the club take the playing field, with Under 10, 12, and 14 teams. There were 52 registered players. The club also held an Auskick clinic, with 31 kids taking part.

In 1998 the numbers increased to 100 boys and girls. The Under 14’s finished the season as Minor Premiers and were narrowly beaten in the dying minutes of the Grand Final. Mr Bill Hoogen donated to the club a signed and framed St Kilda jumper (the year that Robert Harvey won the Brownlow Medal).
