Photographer and football lover Eric Algra continues his trip from Melbourne to hometown Adelaide, via the Mallee. “The Parilla ground had, to me, a lovely sense of community.”
The Mallee Football League in South Australia was formed in 1994 when the Lameroo & Districts Football League and the Murraylands Football League amalgamated.
There were seven clubs: Karoonda Districts, Lameroo, Murrayville, Ngallo, Peake & Districts, Pinnaroo and Parilla /Geranium
Parilla /Geranium went into recess in 1998 and Ngallo followed in 2001. Border Downs Tintinara joined the Mallee League in 2002. There have been six clubs since that time. (There is also a Mallee Football League in Victoria.)
Scoreboard Pressure looks forward to more of Eric’s epic adventures.
