JUNE is a very big month for the Werribee Football Club on and off the field.
On field, the club will host three home games which began last weekend against Collingwood.
Unfortunately, the Tigers went down to the Magpies in a close fought game.
Tomorrow, Werribee heads to Punt Road to take on the Richmond Tigers before returning to Avalon Airport Oval on Saturday June 18, for a clash with Essendon. This game will be telecast by Channel 7 from 2pm.
To finish the month, Werribee hosts Coburg on Saturday June 25. This is the annual Ladies High Tea function organised by the Werribee Women’s Football Circle. This year the morning has a ‘Parisian Theme’ and will feature Rebecca Maddern from The Footy Show as guest speaker.
Off the field is very busy as well. While the Chirnside Park redevelopment is set to start its major activity in October, some provisional work has already begun on the $11.75 million dollar project.
Werribee CEO Mark Penaluna got a firsthand look last week at some initial trenches that have been started at Avalon Airport Oval.
The club took possession of an impressive new vehicle during the week thanks to Morris Financial, as part of its website sponsorship agreement with the club. The transit van will make life a lot easier and more comfortable for several members of our football department. The club travels a lot of kilometers from Avalon Airport Oval to grounds as far away as Casey, Geelong, Ballarat and Frankston.
Werribee is always active in the City of Wyndham through the hard work of the Community Development unit of the club, headed by Chris Gallagher.
The club has recently launched a new initiative called the Werribee Football Club Diversity Squad. More details will be available in coming weeks as the program gets into full swing.
This year has seen the WRFL and Werribee consolidate their relationship with the VFL Tigers, becoming the WRFL’s Multicultural Diversity partner. The aim of this new relationship is to promote the game of Australian Rules in the western suburbs.
Werribee will continue its multifaceted community programs in schools and community groups.
As well as assisting existing Auskick Centres, the club will create a new multicultural Auskick Centre to run out of Avalon Airport Oval.
The Werribee Football Club and the WRFL believe that our sport can play an important role in breaking down social barriers and helping people transition into the community.
Whether they become players, volunteers or supporters of the game is not important. What is important is the social connection that can be made and shared through our great game and the people involved in it.
