Wecome to Pooraka Junior Football Club - Home of The Bulls. We are situated at Lindblom Park, McCarthy Court, Pooraka.
Brief History of the Mighty Bulls
Pooraka began life as the Abattoirs Football Club, the original clubrooms and oval were located on grazing land west of Main North Road. Time has since seen this and the surrounding farmland develop into the suburbs of Pooraka, Montague Farm and more recently Mawson Lakes.
In 1968 the club moved to its current location, purchasing a block of land adjacent to the then cow paddock now known as Lindblom Park, home of the "Mighty Bulls". The change of name to Pooraka Football Club soon followed.
When the SAFA was formed in 1978, Pooraka became an inaugural member and soon became one of the strongest metropolitan football clubs in both senior and junior football.
It completely dominated the SAFA in the latter years of that association, winning six Division 1 Premierships between '84 and '94 as well as many successes in junior football.
Pooraka was the envy of other clubs as a result of its success in junior development, where a number of juniors went on to play VFL/AFL football while many others played in the senior premiership teams mentioned above.
When SAFA folded in 1996, the club joined the SAAFL and like many grass roots clubs has since found it tough going with limited success since the inception of the AFL and competition from other sports and recreations that are available today.
New Committee - New Mission - New Vision
The mission of the Pooraka Junior Football Club is to again be the club of choice in the local area and to be the envy of all other clubs with its professionalism and commitment to providing junior players and their families the opportunity to be involved in Australian Football in a safe, fun, family orientated and respectful environment.
Our vision is to provide a junior development program based on respect, discipline, fun, skill, fitness, sportsmanship, teamwork and a strong sense of multicultural community spirit both on and off the field. Enjoyment comes from being part of a team and skilful environment and the oppoirtunity to socialise, develop friendships and to feel a sense of belonging.
