Although there have been many lean years between the five treasured premierships, the strong community spirit has ensured this Club’s survival.

Mount Compass Football Club has led the way in becoming the first to have purpose-built clubrooms in 1957, was the first to have their own licensed premises in 1977 and was once again the League leader in Club facilities when the Community clubrooms were opened in 1985. 

With the playing field now being levelled considerably through the salary cap and points scheme the future is looking even brighter for the never say die, Mount Compass Bulldogs.

The Club looks forward to celebrating the next 100 years…
