The Mid Gippsland Football League is an Australian rules football league in the Latrobe Valley and South Gippsland regions of Victoria, Australia.



The Mid Gippsland Football League (MGFL) was founded in April, 1935. [1]

The MGFL superseded the former Morwell & Yallourn Football League (M&YFL) with the following six clubs moving across to play in this new football competition in 1935 - Boolarra, Brown Coal Mine, Morwell Bridge, Morwell Seconds, Yallourn Imperials and Yinnar. [2] The M&YFL subsequently folded prior to the 1935 season. The two remaining clubs in the M&YFL - Trafalgar Meadows FC (admitted into the M&YFL in 1934) and Willowgrove FC (admitted into the M&YFL in 1933) appear to have folded as a result.

In 1936, both Haunted Hills FC and Thorpedale FC joined the MGFL. [3] Morwell Bridge FC dropped out the MFGL and went into recess, leaving seven clubs in 1936.

Morwell Bridge FC reformed & re-entered the MGFL in 1937. [4]

In 1940, Brown Coal Mine, Herne's Creek and Yallourn Imperials all disbanded due to a lack of players caused by many footballers enlisting in the war, leaving just four teams remaining - Morwell Bridge, Morwell Seconds, Thorpedale and Yinnar. [5]

In 1947, Brown Coal Mine FC (BCM) entered two teams in the MGFL - BMC Imperials and BCM Rovers. [6]
