Welcome to Epping Eastwood Football Club

The Epping Eastwood Tigers is the home of football in Sydney’s north west and we have been growing football and friendships since 1952. We support all our players, from those looking to progress their football to an elite level and others just wanting a social kick each week.

Our home ground is the beautiful and central Boronia Park in Epping, which is tree lined and was refurbished in 2016 complete with upgraded turf, new seating areas and adjoining playgrounds.

Each year we field a number of teams across all age groups in the Gladesville-Hornsby Football Association - from Under 6s right through to an elite Premier League team.

If you are considering where you, or your children, might like to play football, then look no further. The Tigers have been growing football and friendships in the Epping and Eastwood district since 1952 and we would love to have you, your family and your friends join our Club!

The Tigers - we’re not just a Club but a part of Epping and Eastwood’s sporting history!

Upcoming Events

The Epping Eastwood Tigers’ Premier League team has taken out the title of GHFA Premier League Champions for the second year in a row.

Tigers Premier League Manager Andrew McLaren said the grand final game against Eastwood St Andrews was an extraordinary demonstration of the Tigers renowned quality of never giving up, even when the team were sitting on 3-0 with just 10 minutes to go in the game.

“This game was extraordinary and possibly one of the best games of football you’ll ever see,” Andrew said.

“I am so incredibly proud of this team and the Tigers as a Club.  They never give up and that’s what this Club and this game teaches you.

“It was looking all but over when St Andrews scored for a third time but the Epping Eastwood coach recognised Tigers needed to score and do it quickly so he changed the formation, and with only 7 minutes remaining in the game, Epping Eastwood finally broke through with a clever little header from replacement mid fielder Eddie Lun.

“Then minutes later a beautifully placed glancing header from Tom Kay rippled the top left corner of the net. And the Tigers were back in the game!!

“The final breakthrough happened with less than a minute of regular time to play.

“A free kick was awarded to the Tigers on the right hand flank outside of the box. Every Epping Eastwood player was in the box ready to pounce, including our goal keeper, who left his goal for this last ditch attempt to level the scores.

“Geoff Turner was given the responsibility to deliver a ball across the face of the goal for someone to head home. The cross was superb and whipped past everyone in front of goal to the far post where the Tiger’s keeper Daniel Buttrey was lurking unmarked. His finish was impeccable and the back of the net was ruffled for a third time.  

“It was magic! The referee awarded the goal then immediately blows full time and absolutely every Epping Eastwood Tiger fan went wild and there was pandemonium in the stands!”

Neither Club could break the score during the extremely tense 20 minutes of extra time and the game went to a penalty shoot-out. The game was now left to be decided by penalties. Both sides missed one shot each in the early rounds with the final breakthrough happening on the 3rd penalty for the Woodies.

“Tiger’s hero goalie Daniel Buttrey saved one for the Tigers and with the score now 3 to 2 in favour of the Tigers they only needed to score their fourth to be victorious,” Andrew said.

“James Harvey crashed the ball into the back of the net and the Tigers were home for back to back titles.”

“St Andrews were great competitors and played a great game but the Tiger’s attitude won this game for sure. 

“Tigers have worked hard all year for this outcome and they really deserved this result,” he said.
