Club History

The story so far....

The Bullioh Valley Football Club (as it was then known) was originally formed in 1947 as a result of a merger between the Tallangatta Valley and Bullioh football teams after WWII.

The newly merged club participated in the Tallangatta & District Football League from 1947 until 1977. The club won its only Senior TDFL flag in 1950 when Bullioh Valley defeated Granya by one point. Despite the Bulldogs being Runners Up in 1976 it was apparent by the end of 1977 that both the Bullioh and nearby Tallangatta Football Club's would both struggle for survival unless steps were taken to remedy the situation.

A merger between the two club's paved the way for the Tallangatta Valley Football Club to debut in the TDFL in 1978 with home games being shared between the two former clubs. The merged club was immediately successful winning flags in 1979 and 1980. However, by the early 1990s all home games were played at the Tallangatta football ground.

By 2000 a group of residents of the Bullioh community had decided it was time to reform the Bullioh Football Club. Although both the Tallangatta Valley and Cudgewa clubs protested their players would be poached and after it was initially turned down by the VCFL the club was granted the right to play in the Upper Murray Football League in 2001.That season they fielded senior, reserve and junior sides along with the formation of the Bullioh Netball Club. The senior side managed four victories in their inaugural season.

Since first taking to the field in the Upper Murray league Bullioh has been among the most successful clubs in country Victoria, making the finals in all but its first season and winning their maiden Upper Murray flag in 2004. Since the appointment of Mark Nichol as senior coach in 2007 the club has made 5 grand finals in a row. After finishing the home and away season in 2007 with only one loss the Bulldog's were shock losers to Federal in a near unbackable grand final. However, this only strengthened the club's resolve with the club now having won 4 premierships in succession (2008–2011).
