Footscray’s Presidents/Chairman 1886-2010

FOOTSCRAY PRESIDENTS/CHAIRMAN

These are the Presidents or Chairman of the Footscray Football Club. This list begins in 1886 with David Mitchell.

There are two men at the helm with the name David Mitchell (1) & David Mitchell (2) These two gentlemen are/were uncle and nephew.

Years given are for football seasons rather that actual exact dates for their stewardship. So for example although Peter Gordon took control in October 1989 and left power just as the 1996 football season was concluding, his first season is given here as 1990 rather than 1989.

Information predominantly gained from the official and most recent club history – UNLEASHED – A HISTORY OF THE FOOTSCRAY FOOTBALL CLUB (1996) and some old Footscray Football Club Yearbooks.
