What has been truly up-lifting is the collaboration between the Vampire Juniors (EBVJFC), ably led by Ian Jensen-Muir and the Senior Club. Having a united vision that creates a community sporting environment that supports the Development of our boys and girls, the Retention of our local East Brighton talent in a Healthy, Safe and Fun atmosphere; not only that, but ensure we provide a hub where people feel Connected – Current & Past Players, friends, family, members, sponsors – old or new.

As a sign of our commitment to realizing this vision, in 2016, EBFC will introduce a Junior Development Academy that will be headed up by recently retired champion Damian Lynch (and others, including Jason Tickner – new U/19 Coach). Lynchy is a product of East Brighton Junior Football, who went on to play VFL football for Sandringham Seniors, and no less than 6 Premierships with Old Xavarians in A Grade Amateurs.
