The Old Scotch Collegians Football Club (OSCFC) was founded in 1935 by a group of Launceston business men who were ex students of Scotch College. There were five families who played a strong role in establishing the club. They were the Bushby, Fotheringham, Hogarth, Cocker and Ellis families, and descendants still play an active part 73 years on.
The club is renowned for being a family based club, with very strong ties to the Scotch Oakburn College community and the recently formed East Launceston Junior Football Club, which remains as one of its principal recruiting grounds. Early days were tough as with any newly established club, and this was not assisted when the club went into recess between 1942 and 1945 owing to World War 2. It was not until 1957 before the club some had success in winning and premierships - some 22 years after its establishment.
The club is now extremely proud of the fact that we have won 9 Senior premierships after winning the NTFA Division 2 premiership over Fingal Valley in 2009 (breaking a 23 year drought) and going back to back in 2010. The senior side had also previously won 2 State premierships. Our Reserves have now won 13 premierships and 1 State premiership for an overall count of 25 premierships. The Reserves have been a powerhouse over recent years, winning four premierships in a row from 2007 -2010.
Season 2010 was a historical year. Not only did the Reserves win their 4th straight premiership, but the Seniors went through the year undefeated, and then went on to defeat the Fingal Valley in the Grand Final without allowing them to concede a score, a first in Australian Rules history. It was also the first time the club has won back to back premierships in the same year in both grades.
In 2011 the NTFA announced their team of the decade (2000 - 2010), of which 5 Old Scotch players were recognised for their outstanding playing achievements throughout the last 10 years. This was an outstanding effort from a group of very good footballers.
