It is a “Special occasion” for the Gilchrist Family from our under 10s this Saturday who have been doing it tough of late. Young Lachie Gilchrist is stepping up to the plate to be non-playing Co-Captain of the senior team THIS WEEK. He will be joining in the team meeting before the game, doing the pre-game warm up and leading the team out with his CO captain Julz Petracca before tossing the coin.

Now you see Lachies mum Fiona after surviving cancer as a teen, last year received the shocking news that cancer had returned and she now has an extremely rare (and aggressive) cancer called leiomyosarcoma and a real battle on her hands.

The Gilchrist family have been members of our club since Aus Kick, Jamie is the team manager of the under 10s and son Lachie is a superstar and together with Son / Brother Mitchell and Wife / mother Fiona you couldn’t wish to meet a more up standing family.

Please join with us in supporting the beautiful Gilchrist family by giving generously via the crowd-funding site:


Please get along this Saturday to Walker Park to support the family as lachies under 10 team mates will also be forming a guard of honour as the senior team runs out
