100 years of the Girgarre Football Netball Club!!
In 2020 we celebrate our fantastic club turning 100 years. What a wonderful achievement. Thank you to every single person who has been a part of this great club over that time, whether as a player, coach, committee person, President, team official, canteen or bar manager, loyal supporter or sponsor. Without you, we wouldnt be here today.
We start off the season in Rd 1 with our Centenary Ball (previously called the Roo Ball) and then major Centenary celebrations will be on the weekend of August 1st and 2nd. We would love to see many of our past members and supporters from over the years attend these events. More details to come!!
The Senior side will be led by new coach Bill Barnes in 2020, again with Nick Mellington as Assistant Coach. We are very excited to see what the playing group bring this year. The Girgarre FNC is also delighted as 2019 Assistant Coach Rory Young takes over from Breeza as the Reserves coach with Daniel Arnold assisting. Billie and Cam Gahan round out the football coaches as Coach and Ass. Coach of the Thirds. The football department has been working hard behind the scenes with some exciting new recruits , none bigger than Jake Reeves.
There is huge excitement on the netball side with the appointment of Abby Pettifer as our A grade coach, coming to us from Kyabram FNC and Tongala FNC. She has an impressive resume and has been a huge drawcard for netballers to trial at Girgarre, with 50 girls trying out for a team. We have even been able to introduce C Reserve, so now we have 4 senior netball teams. Chloe Kavanagh continues as our B grade coach and both her and Chloe will be working closely together. We also have 4 junior netball teams with 11 and under being introduced into the KDL. We are still looking for more girls and boys aged 7-13 for our 11- and 13 and under teams.
Football preseason has re-commenced with great numbers on the park. Training nights are Monday/Wednesday during January and February, starting at 6pm. Netballers are also training Mon/Wed nights currently
