Round 7 - Teams & latest news

Fri 2nd of June at 9:47 am Image

We return to De Winton Park to take on Heidelberg in what shapes as a massive game for both clubs.


After a disappointing loss to Eltham last week, we need to get back on track with a solid win. Liam Wanders will make his long-awaited senior debut while James Condello comes up from the under-19s. They replace the injured Nick Lynch and Brett Wilding.

The under-19s have a bye but will have a hit-out against Greensborough tomorrow morning at De Winton.

Tomorrow night there will be a players’ function with the theme ‘Back to School’. Dress accordingly!

Just in time for winter, the coffee van will return to De Winton Park tomorrow with great range of hot drinks to warm you up.

Saturday, June 17 after the Bundoora away game, 7pm-midnight. $100pp includes cocktail menu, beers, ciders, wine, champagne and soft drink. Venue is the Boat Builders Yard, 23 South Wharf Promenade, South Wharf. See Nicole Brandt or Jo McKeown to book your place, or put your name on the list at the clubrooms. Dress to impress … prizes for the best dressed couple.

Tonight Macleod 1 plays the Heat at Mernda Central College at 9.45pm while Macleod 2 takes on Thomastown at Harvest Home Primary School at 8.55pm.

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.
