The Balwyn Football Club has great pleasure in announcing Marty Pask as the Senior Coach for season 2017.
A fabulous night was had by all of the 130 strong crowd at the Balwyn FC Social Club on Saturday night for our B & F Presentation Night, winding up our 2016 season, and saluting our retiring champions Rod Crowe, John Milhuisen and Ben Wise.
It also bought the curtain down on the five year coaching tenure of Daniel Donati at Balwyn FC, who we farewell with every good wish for the future with his family and business endeavours.
For the record, with Daniel Donati at the helm - here's some statistics ...
We won 4 Premierships in 5 years (2012, 2013, 2015, 2016)
We played in 5 straight Grand Finals - twice back to back champions
We played in 17 finals over that period
14 times we played in a 'win or the season is over' final.
We won 13/14 of them
We were beaten twice in a row only once in five seasons
What a time to be with Balwyn FC!
But as always with life, the future beckons ... and we will be doing all we can to ensure that these kind of results continue.
Stick with us.
Congratulations to all our award winners in 2016!
