"The Heidelberg United Alexander Football Club (originally known as the Alexander The Great Soccer Club ) was founded in 1958 by Greek immigrants from Florina.In 1955, the founding members of Alexander The Great decided to form the Clifton Hill Social Club. It was at a time when immigrant families began to arrive in Australia in great numbers. It was in 1955 that the Clubs founding members, George Baniscas, Nicholas Themelkos, Tryphon Rakovalis, Tryphon Avramopoulos, Chris Samartzis and Peter Economidis commenced their meetings at the residence of Tryphon Rakovalis in Fairfield. They began to organise gatherings that managed to attract large numbers of newly arrived migrants who were looking for opportunities to socialise and make new friends.However, it wasnt until 1957 that discussions to establish Alexander The Great Soccer Club began. Markos Economidis managed to convince the committee of Clifton Hill Social Club to contribute the funds required to purchase the necessary equipment to form a soccer team. It was therefore on the 12 of May 1958, when the Clifton Hill Social Club members organised their first appeal where a total of 125 pounds was collected to establish the Alexander The Great Soccer Club. The first committee consisted of George Baniscas (President), Markos Economidis (Secretary), NicholasThemelkos (Vice-President), Tryphon Rakovalis (Treasurer), A. Doukas, E. Mangopoulos, G. Milopoulos, V. Iliopoulos and T. Iliopoulos. The colours of the team, yellow and black, were decided and based on a team with the same name from Florina, Greece. The name Megas Alexandros (Alexander The Great) came from the region were Alexander The Great was King.During this time the club has come up with some fantastic ideas and innovative plans to ensure the strength of the club continues long in to the future.One of the main areas the club was looking to improve on was the way in which it was currently communicating with its players, members, supporters and sponsors.With a forward thinking and a dynamic board the club was actively pursuing different methods which would enable them to improve on their existing communication channels.After conducting a review of all the options available to them the club is pleased to announce the release of their first ever native mobile phone app for the iPhone.The app will be branded in the famous black and yellow of the Heidelberg United Football Club and the content available to users in the app will contain information about the club.No longer will you have to worry about missing out on news or information about the Heidelberg United Football Club as the app will serve as your number one source of information about the club!The type of information available to you when you download this app are as follows:- Latest News- Results- Images- Videos- Events- Facebook- Merchandise- Committee- Contacts- Teams- Ladders- Fixtures- Team news- Sponsors- Grounds- Memberships- Training and much much moreTo make sure you stay in touch with absolutely everything to do with the club, download the app now!Go Warriors!"
