Founded in 1966 by the visionary duo, Diana and Bob Francis, the Frankston Rovers Junior Football Club stood as a beacon of community spirit. Their coaching journey, intertwined with winter weekends featuring gold and brown jumpers drying in front of an old oil heater, became the cornerstone of the Rovers' legacy, now embodied in the iconic Bruce Park.


In the heart of Frankston, a vibrant community has etched its legacy over five decades of junior footy. In the faded photograph, Dermott Brereton stands proud among the U10s team of 1972—a timeless testament to the enduring spirit of the Frankston Rovers.

Fast forward to today, and the Frankston Rovers stand tall with a remarkable record of 30 premierships, 12 players donning the Victoria jersey, and 250 players achieving the prestigious milestone of 100 games or more. As the club continues to thrive, the echoes of its storied history resonate, serving as an enduring testament to the football family that cherishes each player's journey, both on and off the field.



The Ken Lonie award is presented annually to the best club person at Frankston Rovers JFC.
