 plays host to Therry Penola on Saturday in its first home game of the season at its temporary new venue of D.W Lucas Reserve.

A win over arch rival Therry Penola is a must for the Two Blues to square the ledger at 2-2 after four rounds.

Therry is fourth coming off a narrow win v West Brunswick, while Prahran slid to fifth after a 10 point loss to Glen Eira.

With cold, wet conditions forecast this promises to be a typically dour battle.

Last Saturday was arguably the Two Blues best effort for the season but after holding ladder leader Glen Eira to just one goal in three quarters, faded badly in a low scoring affair 3-7 to 4-11.

The Two Blues have one of best defence records in the competition so it will be a matter of where the goals come.

Jesse Waters snaps for goal.

Mackenzie Mayne kicks forward.

Tim Maya gets his kick away.

(Reserves) Jackson Partridge takes a strong mark.

ONE of the last links to the Club’s glory years of the 1970s was lost this week with the passing of Roma Williamson.
Roma was the wife of life member Jim Williamson (picutured above) and was extremely active around the club.
She was also a keen racing fan, part-owning several horses with good friend, the late Jack Morgans.
Jim Williamson served on committee for 23 years, from 1969-1990, in varying roles from Vice President, Treasurer, Chairman of Finance and Match Committee.




AS in past years, Prahran is committed to supporting the VAFA’s "Play 4 BCNA" fundraiser on the Mother’s Day weekend, May 12 - 14.

Teams are encouraged to get involved in a way that your club feels appropriate, and in our case that will mean our players will be wearing pink BCNA socks for the day, an away game v Preston Bullants.

VAFA have registered a league fundraising event and have set a collective fundraising target of $40,000 to help support the 20,000 Australians that will be diagnosed with breast cancer, this year alone.

We know that we can all show amazing support to the families in our community affected by breast cancer, whilst continuing to create awareness and hit this target together. 

Please join our fundraising efforts by donating what you can on our Prahran Football Club "BCNA Pink Sports Day" online donation page.

AFTER a very wet training last Friday, which the kids seemed to love, the weather provided perfect conditions for footy on Sunday.
We would like to say a massive thank you to Pam and Penny, the PJFC Merchandise team, who have spent numerous hours working through the copious amount of uniform orders and swaps that have come through this year.

It is a thankless job that they take on and do it with grace and plenty of smiles. This is however, the last week you will be able to purchase shorts and socks.
We have teams taking on Sundays with volunteers who are yet to register their Working With Children Checks in PlayHQ. The Club will be fined for each volunteer without a valid check to the field.


BACK to earth for the Under 18s after a resounding round 1 win.
This time Ajax, a traditional strong junior club, was much too strong 17-10 (112) to 6-12 (48).


MEANWHILE, the Under 18’s Girls, coached by PFCW Alumni, Gabriella Suriano and Mel Theobald, are undefeated after 2 rounds this season - most recently beating Beaumaris in a twilight match, 87-0.

The connection between the squad, who didn’t know each other prior to the season, is inspiring and generating some exciting football.
