|The Onkaparinga Valley Football Club
was formed from the amalgamation of the Hills Football League in 1967.
The Onkaparinga Football Club joined with the Woodside Football Club
to form the present Onkaparinga Valley Football Club and made their
home at Balhannah oval. Woodside oval has remained a training ground
for many junior teams. The red, white and blue tri-colours of Woodside
were the chosen colours with the Bulldog becoming the adopted symbol
of the Club.
In 1977 the Club became the only Club in the Hills Football League
to own their headquarters. The change rooms and lounge area was
built by a very hard working team lead by President David Paschke
and his Committee, the now disbanded Bulldogs Club and
a building committee of local builders that love football and the
OVFC in 1978.
The combined Club won their first Premiership by defeating Heathfield
Aldgate (and ending their hope of leaving the HFL as having won
the last 10 premiership in a row).
The Club has a very strong Junior structure and fields six under
age teams from Under 8s, Under 10s, Under 12s
plus Junior and Senior colts. The Senior structure has 3 teams being
A1s, A2s and C grade.
From about mid March the Club kitchen and dining area room is open
for evening meals on Thursday nights during the football season.
The meals are cooked and prepared by Senior Club members lead by
Mark Green and the happy group you would wish to meet. The meals
are of a very high standard and low priced so please call in and
say hello to the boys and have a laugh with them.
In the year 2007 major up grade work was carried out in the lounge
area, making the Club one of the best if not the best in the Adelaide
