About Us

Glebe Wanderers Football Club was founded in 1946, joining the NSW Soccer Association's Metropolitan Soccer League and playing out of Wentworth Park in Glebe.


This league was to later become the Sydney Amateur Soccer League and after many successful years through the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's, the club felt that having achieved everything possible in the Amatuer League, the time was right to take on a new challenge, joining the NSW State League in 1992.  


Seven years in State League saw a remarkable run of success, including 4 league titles and 3 unbeaten seasons, before the clubs move to the growing Eastern Suburbs Football Association in 1999. The move from State League was in some part down to the financial pressure that State League put upon teams to remain competitive, and this contrasted with Glebe's proudly amateur status, designed to provide 'Wanderers' from all over a sense of community. Many of the clubs players were based in the Eastern Suburbs of Bondi, Coogee and Randwick, and the move to ESFA was a convenient one.


Some of our honours are listed below, but more important than these are the principles which the club was built on and which have stood the test of time, namely:

  • Providing a sense of Community
  • Encouraging positivity & acknowledging hard work
  • Rewarding & celebrating achievement
  • Supporting our community and our sponsors
  • Developing a strong social culture
