Redan kicks a club record score against Beaufort 34 -32-236 to nil, Colin Chester kicks 18 goals. Peter Merriman plays his 200th BFL game and Colin Chester his 100th Redan senior game.

The Redan Football club was Premiers for second year in succession, in front of a BFL record gate. David Jenkins wins the Henderson medal and Peter Gilbert the George King medal in the reserves.

Senior players were paid $10 a win $5 a loss, reserves $3 a win and $2 a loss. Under16’s were not awarded the Premiership after going through undefeated in the season of 1976, the reason being that coaches and supporters invaded the ground due to an altercation on the field and the game was abandoned.
