Club Theme Song

Sunbury Football Club Theme Song

We’ve got a football team in Sunbury

We wear the royal blue & white

Each game we play – we’re trying all the time

We never give in without a fight

This year we’re going to be Premiers

Of the Ballarat League

Oh ! How they’ll barrack and how they’ll shout

The day of our Grand Final

When the Lions bring home the Premier’s flag
