Swans Football Club was formed by Phillip Matsumoto because many young boys were unable to get a game with the established Clubs. It was set up as a 'feeder' team for Saints and both Clubs combined for the wind-up at the end of the season. They changed colours from black and white to blue and white since North Melbourne donated a set of jumpers and footballs. Later, when the Club folded due to financial reasons, these jumpers were given to the U/17's to use in their competition Roos lost to Towns. in the 1985 Grand Final.
