The Maryborough Football Club, based in the town of Maryborough, Victoria, is an Australian rules football club which competes in the Bendigo Football League.

History[edit]

Maryborough were Ballarat Football League premiers on four occasions from 1924 to 1931 but missed both the 1929 and 1930 seasons as they were without a home ground. The council had decided to allocate Princess Park to the Maryborough District Football Association (MDFA).

After returning and winning the 1931 premiership, Maryborough applied to join the Bendigo league and were suspended from the Ballarat league as a result. From 1932 to 1940, a separate club called Maryborough United participated in the Bendigo league.

The original club reformed in 1945 and they spent a season in the MDFA before returning to the Ballarat league in 1946.[1]
