Always Striving: the Concise History of the Essendon Football Club

Author(s): Dan Eddy

Ball Sports

Always Striving is not a blow-by-blow account of the history of the Essendon Football Club. Instead, this book highlights the key moments, people and events that have helped to define it through more than 140 years of existence. From the establishment of the club in the 1870s, to four successive premierships in the 1890s, the first VFL title in 1897, the brilliance of Albert Thurgood, Dick Reynolds' three Brownlow Medals, John Coleman's high marking, the Windy Hill brawl against Richmond, Leon Baker's famous goals in the 1984 Grand Final, Kevin Sheedy's jacket waving and, in more recent times, Dustin Fletcher's 400th game; there are many moments that have established the Bombers as one of Australia's greatest sporting clubs. Always Striving looks at 80 of the best, and, as it covers every generation, is a must-have for any lover of the Red and Black.
