About
The Glencoe Football Club is a part of the Mid South Eastern Football League and has 4 teams, A-Grade, B-Grade, Senior Colts and Junior Colts.

Glencoe was a founding member of the league when it was established in 1936 and has since compiled the enviable record of 15 senior grade flags.

The club can trace its history back as far as 1910, when it engaged in informal, scratch matches against teams from nearby towns. It did not take part in any formal competition until 1927 when it fielded a team in the Mount Gambier Football Association’s B Grade competition. Between then and the club’s admission to the MSEFA in 1936 it qualified for four grand finals and won two of them.

It then commenced its involvement in the new competition in the best possible fashion by downing North Gambier B in the inaugural grand final by 80 points. No further flags followed until after world war two with the 1950s and 1960s proving especially lucrative, both decades yielding four senior grade premierships each.

Location
Glencoe is a small town in South Australia, located 25 km west of Mount Gambier. In its heyday the township was divided into Glencoe and Glencoe West. First established in 1844 by Edward and Robert Leake as a sheep station, the Leake brothers named the settlement after Glen Coe in Scotland, where the infamous massacre took place in 1692. Surrounding Glencoe are pine tree plantations used in the production of paper pulp and for the supply to sawmills in the area. Sheep and cattle farming is also a strong part of the economy.
