Busselton Junior Soccer Club (Inc) as it was originally named, was started in Busselton around 1981 by Lyla Douglas. Initially the Club was comprised of sixty or so boys from Busselton and surrounds playing in the Bunbury League. For the first year, this meant traveling to Bunbury each week. By the second year, however, the fixtures were home and away which greatly enhanced the appeal of the Busselton Club as travel time was cut by half.
Numbers steadily grew with teams coming from Vasse, Margaret River, Capel Dunsborough and Nannup. It wasn’t long before Busselton started it’s own competition to be played at Churchill Park. A decade ago Busselton invited other groups to help organize the competition and an association was formed with John Cannam being the inaugural LNJSA president.
Since this time, Busselton as a club has continued to be a dominant presence in local soccer. With their distinctive red and white strip Busselton players are hard to miss! Busselton’s home ground is Churchill Park, but we also play and train at Barnard.
In 2016, after discussion between the junior and senior club, both committee’s decided it was in the best interests of the future of the club and to solidify the presence in the local community, to become one club providing a natural progression of juniors players in to the senior ranks and thus Busselton City FC (Inc) was formed.
The club maintains the following values: affordability, accessibility, respect amongst players and officials, optimal resources and support for players and officials in developing their skills and above all a love and enjoyment of the game. The club firmly believes Grass Roots Football should always be about individual development first, with team results second.
In 2019, Busselton City FC (Inc) has a strong and dedicated Junior and Senior Committee. Of course, the committee can only do so much and that is where our coaches, managers, referees and linesmen are invaluable!
