This year to celebrate Sylvania Heights Football Club’s (SHFC) 60th anniversary in 2018 and Gymea United’s (GUFC) 60th year in 2019 both clubs will participate in a very special “competition within a competition”.
A special scoreboard will be maintained weekly and updated on both websites to measure the best of these two historic clubs across all 2019 normal season competition games between GUFC and SHFC. The winning club will be awarded and hold aloft the very prestigious Dean Cup at seasons end.
As a result of our geographic closeness, both clubs have shared many players across the years … although the rivalry on the park has always been fierce. We hope the Dean Cup will further bring our clubs together off the field and ensure on field the competition remains strong.
Why the Dean Cup?
Both clubs have a life member from the same family. GUFC recognised life member Laurie Dean for his tireless efforts for the Club during the 1960s and 1970s. SHFC has recognised his son Alan (Dixie) Dean as a playing life member. Alan has played for SHFC for 39 years and still torments centre forwards today playing for SHFC’s 45A team.
The perpetual Trophy will be awarded to the winning Club by a member of the Dean family at an appropriate function at season end.
To give you some idea of these men and the great contributions they have made to their respective clubs we invite you to review the below.

The play football website that all football clubs use for registration only has the ability to charge players a registration fee based on their actual age group. Hence for players playing in an age group above their actual age the registration fee is slightly higher than you have been charged via the website and a small balance is owing. (See the fee schedule below).
The club will be contacting those players affected (or their guardians) over the coming week and asking them to reconcile this outstanding balance in order to complete their registration.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. This is an issue that has affected all clubs and we thank you in advance for your co-operation.
