Round 3 - Teams & Latest News

Fri 28th of April at 9:32 am Image

There are three big occasions tomorrow


We finally get to play a home game, the under-19s finally get to play a game and we will be playing West Preston for the Awareness Cup as part of our beyondblue day.

There is one change to the senior side which won impressively at Heidelberg last week with Anthony Doherty returning to replace Hamish Paynter who will sit out the next two games due to suspension.

There are still spots available for tomorrow’s beyondblue lunch which will feature former AFL player Lance Picioane who will speak about his battle with depression since retiring from the game. He is now helping others through his Love Me Love You program. Cost is $30 a head and includes a two-course lunch, with drinks at bar prices.

Put your name and “Rowley” on transaction.

Former Collingwood star and Brownlow Medallist DANE SWAN will be headline this year’s MFC Business Lunch. Hear Swanny’s unique take on life, footy and the jungle. Cost is $80 and includes 2-course lunch, and pre-lunch drinks package (pots, wine, champagne, and soft drink). Guests must be seated by 12.30pm. Thereafter drinks at bar prices.

Tonight Macleod 1 plays Epping 1 at Harvest Home Primary School (365 Harvest Home Road, Epping) at 8.55pm while Macleod 2 takes on Epping 2, also at Harvest Home Primary School, at 8.05pm.

The club is seeking the services of a bar person to run the bar on match days, Thursday night training and functions as required. Ideally this position would suit someone who is retired, semi-retired or is available on the days as outlined. It is a paid position and you will receive assistance from club volunteers. Please call president Mark Lynch on 0418 557 362 if you are interested or know someone who would be suited to the job.

There are two coterie groups providing invaluable support for the club. The Golden Kangaroos will be run by Bryan Bottomley 0418 353 685 while the Kangas are under the stewardship of Bruce McDonald 0419 887 667.

We thank all our sponsors for their commitment in 2017. If you are interested in becoming an MFC sponsor at any level, see Damian Hurley.
