Our History

GREENFIELD PARK PACKERS FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION

Together
Through History

We are very proud of our organization and through nearly four decades we have proven ourselves on the field by winning several provincial championships. Many of our past players have gone on to play professional football as well as attaining many other achievements.

Our History

Since 1976

The Greenfield Park Packers football association was created in 1976-77 by four gentlemen named, Wayne Brown, Bob Comeau, James Davis and Don Matthews. For decades the Packers have been a symbol and standard of excellence in regards to football on the South Shore and most importantly, an active participating member in it’s community. Not only have they formed generations of young athletes, the association’s desire to participate in active social life has helped develop generations of devoted and passionate community members. Amongst many fundraising activities, the Packers are involved in several campaigns dear to our hearts such as the Christmas Basket drive, Canada Day celebrations and Remeberance Day ceremonies. The Packers are fortunate to have created strong ties to local foundations such as the Mike Reid Softball tournament and the Canadian Royal Legion. In regards to football, our association has been blessed with the continuous support of Mullins Sports. 

Over the years, several players have made it to the CFL. Many more have gone to be very successful at the College and University levels both in Canada and the United States of America. Wally Zatylny played from 1988 to 1994 for Hamilton and Toronto – his return records in Hamilton stood for 21 years, only broken by Brandon Banks a few years ago. His brother Steve Zatylny played in 1990 and 1991 for Winnipeg winning the Grey Cup in 1990. Rashaan Giddings played from 1996 to 1999 for the Alouettes. Adrian Davis played from 2006 until 2011 for the Montreal, Toronto and Calgary. Recently, Qadr Spooner has been playing since 2017 to this day for both Winnipeg and Edmonton.
