The Marrickville Red Devils Football Club are marking the 75th anniversary of their club this year, following delays to celebrations in 2021. In response to a growing appetite among the Marrickville community for a local soccer club, the Marrickville Football Club was formed by Bruce Livingstone and Arthur Ireland in 1945. The club officially registered in 1946, entering under 12 and under 14 teams into the Canterbury and District Soccer Football Association [CDSFA]. The club has produced a star‑studded list of alumni, including no less than Australia's most well-known Socceroo in Tim Cahill. More recently, two ex-Devils have gone on to play at the Western Sydney Wanderers: Tass Mourdoukoutas, who plays in defence, and Nathanael Blair, who was signed just last week as a striker. In its 75 year history, the Marrickville Red Devils Football Club has come to be one of the largest community sporting clubs in the state, with over 2000 registered members. And in true Marrickville spirit, the Red Devils have led the charge on inclusive sport, fielding all abilities teams and running the "Kick on for Women" program. Congratulations to everyone at the Marrickville Red Devils on this significant milestone.
