Aspley Hornets Football Club is an Australian rules football club competing in the AFL Queensland State League competition.

Overview

A strong club financially and in terms of playing numbers, the Aspley Hornets were admitted to the Division One competition in 2009 following the collapse of fellow northern Brisbane club the Zillmere Eagles.[1] In recognition of this change the Aspley Hornets will play four matches a season at Zillmere’s former homeground O’Callaghan Park.[1]

With the biggest number of juniors in Queensland, Aspley carries AFLQ’s expectations of being a power base for the game in the region for the next few decades.[1] Aspley finished well down the ladder in the second-tier competition in 2008, so it may take the Hornets a season or two to adjust to the higher level.[2] They will be boosted by the signing of inaugural captain, 27-year-old dual AFL premiership layer, Robert Copeland.[3][4]

Facilities

Aspley have a highly successful license and gaming club at its Graham Road premises, own other grounds at Brendale, and recently opened a new $1.5 million training and changeroom complex.[1]
