Brunswick United Juventus
The club was formed in 1948 as 'Juventus' by Italian migrants from an amalgamation of several smaller clubs. The club was not a foundation member of the NSL in 1977. In 1980 the club changed its name from Juventus to Brunswick United Juventus. When the NSL created the conference system in 1984, Brunswick finally joined the national league ranks, and after reaching the finals in their debut season, followed it up with their greatest achievement, the 1985 NSL title. An eighth place finish in 1987 was followed by a 13th place finish in 1988 and relegation to the state leagues. Rejoining the NSL for the 1993/94 season as Brunswick Pumas and in 1994/95 changing their name again to the Melbourne Zebras, the club struggled for two seasons before in 1996 entering into the merger which would become the Bulleen Zebras.
