Grand Final day is an exciting day and even more-so if you’re part of it. Congratulations to the Clubs and their committees who are participating today. Well done also to Dan Heathcote and his team for a super GL season and a fantastic finals series. What an amazing return to footy & netball it has been.
It was a heartbreaker for our thirds last week going down by the solitary point. We were thereabouts all day and definitely gave ourselves a chance. All who were watching were on the edge of their seat as our persistence created the momentum that drove us to a nail-biting finish. Well done to all the players for their efforts and their season as a whole.
Huge thank you and acknowledgement to our sponsors including our Major Partners in Four N’ Twenty, Dahlsens, Fenning Timber, TAFE Gippsland & Tambo Waste. Your support of our Club and community sport is enormous & vital. Thank you.
Mark these dates in your Calendar. Always fun to be had with the Redlegs.

It was sensational to have the AFL Premiership Cup in town yesterday thanks to the AFL & Toyota. Thank you to all who turned out. Definitely a unique experience, especially for all the wide-eyed kids.
Thanks to all our coaches & assistants for their time, expertise & care throughout 2022.
Thank you to Karen in the office who everyone has sought out at some point during the season for direction or assistance. We appreciate all you do and all you do that we don’t even know about.
Matchday Volunteers are vital to playing. Team managers, runners, court supervisors, time keepers, interchange stewards, umpire escorts, first aid officers, trainers, boundary umpires, umpires, water carriers, gate keepers, canteen helpers, bar tenders, goal umpires & scorers. We have 14 teams participating in football & netball plus Auskick, Net-Set-Go and Thursday Night Netball. Our parents, supporters, sponsors & committee are enormous in covering all these roles and more. Thank you all.
Bingo is back and firing after a couple of interrupted years of lock-downs. Thank you tour Thursday & Saturday night organisers and helpers for their dedication and ensuring its continuation.
The off-season has commenced and our Committee continues to plan and work toward our Club being even better in 2023 & beyond. Among other things, we will return to pre-season with new change rooms and improved viewing areas for our supporters and spectators.
Well done to all our players. Your commitment, persistence and willingness to Challenge Yourself is a credit to you. Great things can happen when you stay the full journey and build something together. Thank you and we can’t wait to see you in action again in 2023.
