Kangaroos Football Club

The Kangaroos Football Club, formerly the North Melbourne Football Club, and informally known as the Shinboners or the Kangaroos plays Australian rules football in the Australian Football League. It is based at the Arden Street oval in the inner Melbourne suburb of North Melbourne, but plays its home matches at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and, occasionally, Docklands Stadium or Princes Park.

The club had its greatest on-field success of any decade in the 1990s, with a simple game plan devised by ruthless coach Dennis Pagan implemented around star forward Wayne Carey.

Premierships: 4, 1975, 1977, 1995, 1999.
