West Coburg Football Club

50th Anniversary Match – Sunday May 3

1965 Celebration

1965 started with The Kinks and The Rolling Stones touring Australia and ended with 1 RAR being deployed in the Vietnam War.  In the middle, West Coburg and Aberfeldie went head-to-head in the then A-Grade Grand Final, with West Coburg 5.6 (36) defeating Aberfeldie 4.7 (31), winning our Club’s first Premier Division Premiership.

50 years on, and the two sides meet again in Premier Division this weekend in their Round 4 clash at City Oval.  Watch the game, see history – all starting at 2:15pm Sunday May 3.  Note the Sunday match day for this round only.

Call to Arms – Bunnings Fundraising BBQ


Our annual Bunnings fundraising BBQ is happening for 2015 on Sunday May 3.

We know this is going to be a busy day with junior and senior matches on as well, but the BBQ is a vital source of fundraising from OUTSIDE the West Coburg Community.

We’re asking for helpers on the tongs, or servers who can assist even for an hour around your Sunday matches.  If you can help, please reach out to Tony Ring (ajr22cfc@hotmail.comand grab your preferred time now.  EVERY BIT HELPS.

Every team will be expected to help contribute to this day – juniors and seniors – and provide at least one helper for an hour.  If we do this, we have the day close to covered.  Please don’t leave it to the usual few to raise funds for the Club.

Fundraising is a vital part of the Club’s finances and is used to subsidise everyone’s registration fees.

Bar Manager for Shore Reserve Sought

The Club is considering appointing a Bar Manager to our Shore Reserve rooms and is seeking a trustworthy and responsible individual for the role.  While our preference is for someone directly connected to the Club, we are happy to consider indirect connections via friends and family.

Responsibilities include opening and closing Shore Reserve rooms for 'Friday Night Footy’ (6pm – ~11pm) and Saturday evenings when the seniors play AWAY (5:30pm – 8:30pm), and working the bar while the rooms are open.  The Club would also like this role to manage the ordering and delivery of bar stock.

A current RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) certificate is essential.

We are seeking someone who can take on the Bar Manager role for the rest of season, and are willing to negotiate this as a paid position for the right individual.

Interested parties are asked to contact David Gloury (president@wcfc.com.au or on 0429 121 426).
