Gosford Tigers AFL logo
The club was formed in 1996 as the Gosford Bulldogs with sides in the Under 12s, 14s and 17s competition. In the first year, the U12s won the Premiership, the U14s made the Preliminary Final and the U17s made the First Semi Final. The following year the club struggled for numbers but the seniors, who had missed a year, reformed and made an approach to the Bulldogs to reunite as one club. Parents instrumental in keeping the club going at that time were Shane Curran, Dave Croxton, Mike and Christine Deitz, Dave Wolski, Lesley Richardson and Glen Allen.

In 1998 the juniors and seniors reunited as Gosford Australian Rules Football Club although the juniors continued to play in Bulldogs colours. Some senior players took on junior coaching roles and many parents became involved in the senior club. Mike Deitz was instrumental in bringing the junior and senior clubs together. In 1999 all junior sides played in Tigers colours and the club started to flourish to where it is today.
