We take on our old rivals Greensborough for the Derek Shaw Cup at De Winton Park.


There is one change to the senior side which won impressively against West Preston last week with Hayden Manuel promoted from the under-19s for his senior debut. He replaces the injured Ned Mabon.

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.
