Round 8 - Teams & latest news

Fri 16th of June at 1:13 pm Image

We resume after the Queen’s Birthday break with a trip up the road to Bundoora.


Brad Leggett, Reid Brandt and Rhyce Geary return from injury replacing Hayden Manuel, Jake Chiminello and Jayden Wilding. Charlie Smythe from the under-19s is the 23rd man.

Tonight Macleod 1 plays Fitzroy Stars at RMIT at 7.20pm while Macleod 2 takes on South Morang also at RMIT at 8.10pm.

To recognise our 70th anniversary, we will be holding a pre-match luncheon on July 15 commencing at 12pm sharp. Guest speakers include former champions in John Booth, Shane Molloy, Ken Rowbotham, Shane Davies and Andrew Knights.

We will raffle a special one-off jumper and there will be a presentation and a group photo taken just before the senior game.

This event will be fully booked so we ask that you contact Richard Crockford on 0425 814 105 or no later than July 10 to reserve your spot and arrange tables. Cost is $30, including a two-course meal with drinks at bar prices. Please make payment via direct credit to Macleod FC Bendigo Bank BSB 633 000 AC 104020441, ref: 70th.

Thanks to the support of sponsors Hobbs Trenching and Milestone Chemicals, the senior team will be wearing our heritage jumpers into battle against old rivals Eltham.

Even If you can’t get to the pre-match function, we hope all past players and supporters make the effort to attend and participate.

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.
