Bannockburn Football & Netball Club


Funny thing footy/ netty season just behind us… and things are in full swing! Can remember someone saying to me “you must be glad the season is over”! My reply “no it’s just beginning”! And so it is! This is the seriously busy time… player negotiations, recruiting, salary cap, points systems..!  A mine field for those involved!


We are so glad we have such a polished team to negotiate our future! And so pleased that the rank and file of our players have made a commitment to 2017!

We recently held our AGM, with Deniel flagging his vacating of the Presidents role, we elected our Committee, and with some nominees unable to attend, the position of President has not yet been filled. In due course the committee will work through the best way forward to season 2017. We thank Kath for continuing as Secretary, and Deniel has taken on the role of Treasurer. Huge tasks, so vital to our Club. Thanks!

I was given an insight many years ago when the late Bill Caldow was President, and I was a VERY green Secretary. I attended a VCFL seminar when it was put by a person from a far flung League team about to fold…..”how much time can you give to support your Club?” Amazing! One hour, yes we have a job for you.  They went from strength to strength. Worth a thought.. lots of jobs, small input, may be plenty of satisfaction? And in the end a win win outcome! Please give it a thought Clubs run on people, so we need you to help!

Though we didn’t bring home a bag full of silver, we capped our year with the G&DFL Champions; Netball, Football and Club! Can’t get much better than that; probably a first! A lot of good people working for a collective goal! We are so proud! 

Without the loyal and committed sponsors this is not possible. We cannot thank you enough, and look forward to continued partnerships and welcome with open arms all of those who wish to jump on board. We are progressive and open to what ever and in what ever form you can bring to our Club! Tailored to your circumstances!

Of course the next thing will be pre-season training… how quickly one season leads to another. Will keep you updated!!!

Congratulations to those in our midst who have welcomed the next generation of netballers and footballers to our ranks! And to those who have suffered bereavement, our sincere condolence.

Well guess it’s nearly time to dust off the tinsel and get ready for 2017!
