A Short History Of The Essendon Bombers
Established in 1872, the Essendon Football Club played in the VFA from 1878 until 1896, when it joined several other clubs in forming the breakaway VFL, which later became the AFL. Universally known as the Dons, Essendon didn’t get their Bombers nickname until the War years of the early 1940’s because they were headquartered in Windy Hill, close to the Essendon Aerodrome. The club have since moved to The Hangar in Melbourne Airport and play their home games at either Docklands or the MCG. As one of Australia’s best known football clubs, Essendon has won 16 VFL/AFL premierships. Along with Carlton, this makes them the competition’s most successful club. Essendon is also the only club to have won a premiership in their first season. Three former Bombers players are ‘Legends’ in the Australian Football Hall of Fame: John Coleman, Bill Hutchison and Dick Reynolds. The club’s mascot is a mosquito named ‘Skeeta Reynolds’, after Dick Reynolds. The mosquito mascot was created in honour of the team’s back-to-back premiership sides in the 1920’s known as the ‘Mosquito Fleet’.
