Ex Unitate Vires - Out of Unity
The Pembroke Old Scholars' Football Club (POSFC) a.k.a. 'The Pembroke Kings' fields three teams in the South Australian Amateur Football League - SAAFL (Divisions 3, 3 Reserves and C3). All games are played on Saturday afternoons and our home ground is Haslam Oval, 337 The Parade, Kensington Park.
The Pembroke Kings joined the SAAFL in 1932 under the guise of King's Old Collegians. The club represented the Old Scholars of King's College located at the Parade, which is now the home ground of the club. Due to the merger of King's College and Girton Girls School in 1974 to form Pembroke School, the club changed its name to Pembroke Old Scholars FC in 1978. From 1990 the nickname "Kings" was adopted to acknowledge the history of the club.
The club boasts of a fine tradition and history over its 76 year existence which includes 10 premierships and another 11 grand final appearances. Peter Adcock holds the SAAFL record for most successive medals with 4 and the most medals in an 'A' grade team with 5. Mark 'Charlie' Prider is the Club record holder for games played with 406 over 26 seasons. In 2008 Fraser Pinkney was selected in the Under 23 All-Australian Amateur which played Ireland in a 4 match series in Dublin.
Trainings are held at Haslam Oval every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6pm and post-match functions are held each Saturday evening at the Kensington Hotel.
