Almanac Soccer – Deakin University Library’s Soccer Collection: Goals and Glory

Goals and Glory


Deakin University Library’s Soccer Collection


Roy Hay reports  the soccer exhibition “Goals and Glory” at Deakin University’s Waterfront, Geelong campus was opened yesterday. Roy says the exhibition looks brilliant because a superb designer, Paul Garry,  took Roy’s ideas and transformed them into something that is better than he could ever have imagined. It runs for a couple of months, so if you are in Geelong  you should drop in to see it.


This is an exhibition of the rich resources available for the study of the history of Association football in Deakin University Library’s collections and other accessible sources.


Find out about the game, the people who play it, support it, watch it and where it fits into Australia’s story and yours.


Ron Lord & Joe Marston, stars of the world game.



Melissa Hudson saves for Melbourne Victory.




The atrium in the Sally Walker building at Deakin University’s Waterfront Campus in Geelong. Enter from Cunningham Street (closest), Western Beach Road or Gheringhap Street. There is no charge for admission.



Open from 6 June to 29 July 2019, weekdays from 10 am to 4 pm.
