Yallambie Park

Yallambie Park is located in Yallambie, Victoria and has been the long time home for Banyule City "Bulls" Soccer Club. The pitch is purpose built for football only with a small pavilion at the south end and tennis courts behind that. So little has changed over the years with no apparent changes even though the senior team has done considerably well. Parking is available on site but is limited.

The home club for football is East Bentleigh and they have access to two full size pitches with the main one as part of a large oval. The pavilion has been around for sometime and has your basic change rooms and kitchen area. Car parking has improved with a lot more parking spaces available than in the past.

Dendy Park - Brighton

Dendy Park is located in Brighton and for this images I am focusing on the section of the area that is used by Brighton Soccer Club. First you would drive past a pitch on your right that is used by East Brighton United but as you travel further down the path you end up at the new pavilion that is used by one of the longest running clubs Brighton.

RGC Cook Reserve

RGC Cook Reserve is located in Thomastown, Victoria and is now home to Plenty Valley Lions after it was left vacated by Sporting Whittlesea after that club merged with Mill Park. The venue itself has two full size pitches with the main one configured from North to South in front of the Pavilion. The Pavilion was expanded in 2016 with new change rooms, canteen and social room.

Mentone Playing Fields

Mentone Playing Fields is located in Braeside, Victoria and is a privately own sporting complex that host numerous sports clubs including cricket, Aussie rules football, hockey and as highlighted in these images the main pitched that is used by Old Mentonians Soccer Club.

Chelsworth Park

Chelsworth Park is located in the suburb of Ivanhoe and is home to Old Ivanhoe Soccer Club. The section that the club uses is part of a larger area that also incorporates Aussie Rules Football. The pavilion is useful as it has good pace for the social room but would be difficult to watch matches from the balcony as it faces directly into the sun as it descends in the afternoon. Parking when I visited was not too difficult on the day,
