Pursuit of the Cup
WHERE THE SMALLEST TEAMS
CAN STEP ONTO THE BIGGEST PITCHES
South Springvale SC
South Springvale Soccer Club is based in Springvale South, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria. The club was founded in 1968 by Greek immigrants who migrated to Australia in the early to mid 1960’s. The club was initially called Sandown Dynamo and played out of Springvale High Schools’ facilities. During the next 12 years Sandown Dynamo competed in the lower amateur leagues, however as the clubs following grew bigger the need to relocate its headquarters became more apparent.
In 1980 the club shifted to Warner Reserve whilst also changing it’s name to South Springvale Soccer Club. Over the next two decades the club endured many good years culminating in three championships in 1990, 1991 and 1995, whilst also claiming the State League Cup in 1994. The team is currently competing in the Victorian State League Division 1.
South Springvale are one of only three clubs to qualify for the FFA Cup by defeating clubs in a higher tier of the football pyramid. In doing so, the club has been added to our Honour Roll.
South Springvale qualified for the 2014 FFA Cup by reaching the Semi Finals of Victoria’s Dockerty Cup.
In reaching the FFA Cup Round of 32, the South Springvale defeated Doncaster Rovers (SL1) 2-1, Pascoe Vale (NPL) 1-0, Cairnlea (SL1) 3-1, Fawkner Blues (SL1) 1-0 and Hume City (NPL) 3-0.
Going into the playoff match, not many gave the State League 1 side any hope against the much fancied NPL opponent, but a brace from Ali Hameed and a single strike by Damian Iaconis sent South Springvale through to the Round of 32 for the inaugural FFA Cup.
