About

The inspiration behind the founding of the Seaford Soccer Club was fostered in 1968, by Norman Jones a big man who was a competent and shrewd soccer administrator and the Secretary of the Frankston City soccer club. In many instances seemingly unrelated happenings effect decisions of other bodies, this was the case in the sequence of events that led to the founding of the Seaford United soccer Club. About 27 years ago the Frankston Soccer Club was founded and fielded they're first team in the Third Division. Local councils of this era were reluctant to recognise soccer as an up a coming sport and therefore provision of grounds and area was of a poor standard, and such was the case at Frankston. However, even though facilities were poor the Frankston Soccer club prospered and were eventually promoted to First Division. During the period of development of the local soccer club a number of junior squads were formed, with the intention of grooming junior players for promotion to the senior team. Due to lack of space these teams could not be centralised but instead played their matches at different locations throughout the shire of Frankston. When the City of Frankston was proclaimed in 1966 the Frankston club altered its name to the Frankston City soccer club. About this time the unrelated happenings occurred in the western suburbs. Polonia a state league team formed a junior soccer club know as Keilor now renamed green gully. The junior team prospered and in a few years surpassed the mother club in assets and on the field ability. The Keilor club then claimed senior status recognition. Polonia complained to the VSF which passed a resolution that senior soccer clubs were permitted to found junior clubs under a different name and that the federation would recognise both clubs as a single whole club. Players registered with the junior club were once regarded as being registered with and tied to a club. Coincidently with the resolution Frankston City council established the North Seaford reserve, built spacious changing rooms, erected goal posts and marked an Australian rules oval on this site. This reserve was intended to be allocated to the Seaford football club which would move from its ground at the intersection of railway parade and Seaford road and their ground was in turn to be let to the Frankston City soccer club. After works were completed at the North Seaford reserve, Seaford football officials viewed the facilities and elected not to change grounds and affirmed this decision by paying their rental to the council for the forthcoming year.
