Macleod Teams & Latest News - May 2018

Fri 4th of May at 10:02 am


It’s back to Get Wines Direct Oval at De Winton Park for a cracking game against Montmorency who are third and flying. Here is a summary of what is shaping to be a massive day.


  • The northern side car park will be open. Unfortunately, the car park near the scout hall will be out of action for another few days.
  • All three sides are playing. Note the under-19s are playing Bundoora.
  • As well as the usual canteen and outside bar facilities, the North Code coffee team can satisfy your caffeine addiction.
  • The bus shelter has been removed for better viewing at the cricket nets end pocket and the ground is in mint condition.
  • The 2008 Under-19s premiership team are holding a 10-year reunion which will go into the evening.
  • The social rooms will be open all day and evening – we have secured 20 new tables thanks to generous sponsors and supporters.
  • Well done to Matt Veszpremi who plays his 100th game for the club when he runs out in the reserves.
