Hello members and friends we are in the final stretch of the season of the home and away season. So all the very best for our teams in the lead up to finals and may your results go your way to reach the final four. In recent news around the Club we have appointed Bronwynne Livingston (who you may have already seen volunteering in Hockey HQ) as our new Canteen Manager and she has started. However may be out of action for a few weeks as she undergoes surgery and we hope she has a speedy recovery.  In the meantime we will be working with a team of people to meet the canteen requirements as well as having our members undertake their required canteen volunteer commitments during opening times on weekends. Mark White has resigned from the Board as Retail Director.  We wish to thank Mark for his work around the Club and managing the Canteen processes.  He will still be assisting until Bronwynne gets back on her feet and we certainly appreciate the ongoing support. Our Sponsors & Life Members Day was a success last week thanks to delicious food prepared by Giulia Wiseman and Bucks Bar run by Laura Anderson with helpers.  Thanks to Karen for co-ordinating the day. Many thanks to all who have this year obtained a sponsor in Premier League or Reserves as well as those outside the PL list. Our Platinum Sponsor...

I did and then met the coach, George Sigley (Brother of Buck after home out bar is named) and father of Ernie who used to come and watch from time to time as a youngster. He took me onto the ground and asked the umpire and opposition to be nice to me as it was my first match. I was hooked. Our home ground was the Lynch Bridge ground between the bridge and the Pioneer hotel in Ballarat road, Footscray and right oppisite Angliss abattoir having moved from the Yarraville gardens. Later it was named Action Reserve after Ben Acton’s grandfather who had been Mayor of Footscray. The only shelter was a gum tree, out goals were collapsible wand together with the corner flags and ground marker were stored on the back verandah of the “pioneer”. The gun tree is still there bit the hotel is now part of a residential development and the abattoir dwellings. There...
