History

The Gold and Brown colours of the Kew Junior Football Club have been worn on the playing fields of Melbourne for a long time. The first club to have borne the name of the Kew Junior Football Club (KJFC) is known to have been in existence as early as 1879, and to have participated in a number of different competitions, all of junior status, Little is known about the history and origins however, it is at least arguable that both the current Kew Junior and Senior football clubs can trace their origins back to this time.

It was in 1898 that the club was invited to join the Metropolitan Junior Football Association. In 1899, having satisfied the MJFA authorities as to its viability, Kew was formally admitted to the MJFA, only to withdraw after two predominantly disappointing seasons. The club later participated in at least three, and possibly more, junior and district competitions, attaining a modest level of success, especially during the late 1920s and early 1930s, winning premierships in 1927, 1929, 1931-2 and 1934.

Hanging in the Victoria park club rooms is a photo of the first Kew grand final team to win a premiership flag in 1927. Clearly identified on the flag is the Kew Junior Football Club (KJFC). Kew, both junior and senior clubs, have continued to enjoy success both on of the field for well over a 100 years.

The most recent incarnation of the Kew Junior Football club was formed in 1971 as part of the Hawthorn District Football Competition. Recently this competition was amalgamated into the Yarra District Football League.
