Easter Game Bright Vs Greta 3/04/10
About the Club
With a rich history and a positive family friendly atmosphere, our club has been an integral part of the Bright community for over 60 years.
In 2017 the United Bright Football and Netball Club (UBFNC) will represent eight teams all competing in the Ovens & King Football & Netball league (OKFNL). The playing group consists of over 150 athletes across our three football teams and five netball teams and we welcome Under 15 Netballers for the first time in 2017.
It is important for us as a club to not only nurture and coach our players to become better footballers or netballers but to also strive to be better young men and women in our community.
As a result our three main goals to achieve are;
• To develop the Club and support our youth
• To be able to provide high quality equipment & facilities
• To operate as a club in a sustainable manner
2016 Player Achievements
2016 was a successful year for UBFNC both on and off the field. We were well represented in the OKFNL, with the Under 17 Netballers making it to the Semi Finals and our Under 18 Footballers winning the Premiership Cup in the 2016 Grand Final.
Our B grade Netball captain Tracy Fitzpatrick came runner up in the OKFNL ‘Best & Fairest’, along with our Under 17’s Jedda McIntosh taking out the ‘Leading Goal Shooter’ Award with 492 goals scored throughout the season.
Senior Football Tom Buckley was named in the OKFNL team of the year and finished ‘Runner Up’ in the ‘Leading Goal Kicker’ after only playing just over half the season. Reserves player Ross Hedley and Thirds player Harry Bartlett both finished third place in the league ‘Best & Fairest’.
