Club Song[edit]

"Panther Land"

(to the tune of the Richmond Football Club Song)

Oh we're from Panther Land

The Mighty football team from Panther Land

In any weather you will see us with a grin

Risking head and chin

We'll fight and fight until we drop

and then we'll fight again

Oh we're from Panther Land

We're never beaten till' the final sirens gone

Oh we're the Panthers of old

We're strong and we're bold

Oh we're from Panther

Red,white and black

Oh we're from Panther Land
