The Marble Range Football Club was formed in 1938. The team’s colours were maroon and white. The Club won two premierships in 1940 and 1941 but with the advent of World War II the club went into recess. It was reformed in 1953 and the colours were changed to black and white, which remains today.
The club’s base at Wangary is an integral part of the football and social activities with Marble Range.
Marble Range is very proud of its past and with its close association with the Marble Range Community Sports Centre is confident of the future of both our home ground at Wangary and football in general.
Wangary Oval, Morgan Lane, Wangary
Wangary is a town on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, located 45 km west of Port Lincoln on the Flinders Highway near Coffin Bay. Its correct name is Lake Wangary owing to a large lake in the area that was once fresh water but has since been degraded to a salt lake. The name Wangary means “place of many ceremonies” in the local indigenous dialect. There are nearby small mountains called the Marble Range. The town is close to many first class surfing and fishing beaches, including a beach called “Gallipoli Beach” used for filming the invasion scenes in the movie Gallipoli.
