Tuggeranong LIOns
junior 
Australian Football Club

The Tuggeranong Lions enter the ACT Junior Football League in 1976, known as the Tuggeranong Junior Football Club. The first Club meeting was held on the 16th February 1976 at the Theiss Cottage, Reynell Pl Kambah.

Our first Jumper was borrowed from the then Sutherland Football Club based in Mawson and consisted of red and white stripes.

In late 1976 Col Chambers wrote to the Victorian Football League (VFL) Club Fitzroy and asked if the Club could wear Fitzroy Club colours. In a letter dated 8 July 1976, the Secretary-Manager of the Fitzroy Football Club gave permission for the Tuggeranong Junior Football Club to wear their colours.

The Tuggeranong Junior Football Club officially changed their name to the Tuggeranong Lions Junior Australian Football Club on the 19th of February 1985.
