Bannockburn Football & Netball Club


A pretty pleasing position to be in at the turn of the season, with both footy and netty teams certainly holding their own! With our footballers sitting comfortably on the ladder and all our senior netball teams secure in the top 3!


We know it’s still a long way to go, but spirits are allowed to be buoyed as a result of some gutsy and committed efforts along the way! 

For the footy players the solid win against BPH may be a watershed - given our great rivalry, and the nail bitting finish in our last encounter! But we are not in the position to rest on our laurels- plenty of footy to come! 

Solid wins v Thomson, North, Werribee C, & Belmont Lions lead into the last rounds, hope the lads can bring home 6 wins from 6 games! 

Needless to say the match v Inverleigh on our Past Players Day July 9th the absolute bench mark! Hope all our players come ready with their “match day hat “on! 

Resies have been leading the pack in fine style; of course injuries in the senior ranks mean player are given the opportunity to play in the 1s. A great place to be, an opportunity for all players to cement a place! 

Colts doing so well, and the Sth Barwon/Banno blend working so well! Thanks to everyone who ensures all lads get the opportunity to play footy every week! Hats off to you all! Ready to fight for a flag!

Our junior teams, footy & netty certainly well in the mix; with some outstanding achievements to boot! 

A big congrats to Jack Sager and Cam Fleeton on their selection in the GFL Inter League Teams! A fantastic achievement! We look forward to following your games! So too to those who were in the mix, but missed the cut - may be next season! We are so fortunate to have so many juniors impacting the selection! 

Great to see James Walpole making his mark @ the Falcons! Wish we could claim him as “ one of ours”! 

All of our junior teams, including the NLL which sometimes fly under the radar, have proved to be oh so competitive! The “zone codes” used in LL enables the game to be played in a much more fluent way and gives the kids a better idea of match play as a team- not just “chasing the footy, or running up stats”!

Our senior netballers have carried all before them with solid ladder positions all round, coming up against Werribee, Thomson and BPH a gauge of where we are; can’t remember when we were in such a strong position across the board. B, C & D   amazing achievements! Keep up the great work! 

Our juniors too have worked so hard and been rewarded by their ladder placement! It’s so fantastic that our girls stick together and work as a team; the reward is yours! Go get em girls!

Fantastic that so many of our very talented juniors are so keen to step up to senior ranks. Boy they’re good! Our junior teams that play at KP are carrying all before them, plenty of gems in there!

July9th sees us host our wonderful Past Players & Officials Day; an absolute tradition at Banno!! All pp&o are welcome to enjoy our hospitality! Memberships, luncheon and refreshments available; plus a courtesy bus from the Fyansford Hotel leaving 11.30am sharp, and return after the final siren. Love to see a great turn up! And as luck would have it we play Inverleigh! Can’t get anything better than tha t- 1&2 on the ladder as I write!

On the social side a very successful and greatly enjoyed “Gold Chisel” mid year concert; followed up by fantastic “Hypnotist” night- seeing some of our own in a different light! Great entertainment!!

July 24th sees us host our annual “Reverse Raffle” plenty of prizes, plenty of fun! Get your tickets, enjoy you day!

Looking forward to the “Mid Year Ball” July 30th. Frock up, sounds pretty glam!

Last game Aug 13th, maybe sounds a long way away - but yep its not! Vote count on that night! boy how time flies ! To be ready to  prepare for the finals tilt, takes a lot of folk to marshal the charge! You are all welcome!

We thank all our sponsors for their generous support, with out you our Club would struggle; reward of silverware would be good for as all!

Look forward to continued success in the next few weeks! Bring on finals 2016! Primed and ready!
