1913 VFL Grand Final


1913 VFL Grand Final

The 1913 VFL Grand Final took place on September 27, 1913 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground between VFL clubs Fitzroy and St Kilda.

It was St Kilda's first ever Grand Final appearance and they struggled early, not kicking a goal until the third quarter. A last quarter burst from St Kilda got them within a point when George Morrissey goaled. A mark to Des Baird in the goal square, on a slight angle, looked like giving the Saints the lead but he handpassed it to Morrissey who was covered by his opponent and he could only snap a behind. Two late goals to Fitzroy then handed them their fifth premiership.
