Our Club



Founded in 2010 the Glebe Gorillas have been on a journey through the jungle. After a rocky start to the club with many years of preparation and changes the Gorillas have picked up no less than 16 trophies in the last four seasons. Since 2010 the Gorillas have competed in the SAFL competition, but in 2017 Glebe Gorillas moved into the Eastern Suburbs Football Association (ESFA). The new competition brought another level of competitiveness to the club and the players and managers were thriving on this new challenge. Unfortunately, our First grade missed out by 1 point reaching the play-offs but nonetheless had a very strong debut season. In 2018 the Gorillas had continued success and recruited strongly across all grades with the AA3 squad winning the Grand Final in the Playoffs and the Reserve Grade doing the double (winning the league & winning the play-offs). We are look on building the squad this year further and winning trophies across all three grades.
