1960's

The 1960's started out well for the Club with finals appearances in both 1960 and 1961, although finishing second in 1961 was a disappointment. Following those early years of success, a period of decline set in which was not arrested until the decade's mid years.

In late 1965 two club-deprived football bodies, the Mountain District Football Association and the Yarra Valley Football League, held urgent talks with a view to combining their meagre resources into one, hopefully strong, football competition. As a result of these talks the imaginatively named Yarra Valley - Mountain District Football League was born and began united competition in 1966.

For the Upwey - Tecoma Club the union was to prove bountiful. The inaugural premiership in that 1966 season was won by the Senior team and they then made it back to back flags with another win in 1967. That '67 grand final is still classed by many who witnessed it as the finest ever. Certainly it was the closest, with the three point margin in Upwey's favour still the narrowest grand final winning margin.
