A message from our Club President
Welcome to the official start of the 2019 Football Season,
I would like to start by thanking all the members of the 2018 committee, our sponsors, coaches, managers, players and volunteers for all the help and assistance in running our club this past season. There is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to enable our players to take the field every weekend, and I appreciate everyone’s effort that made this happen.
This is my first time as President of our great club, and I am looking forward to the 2019 season. I personally would like to thank the new Executive Committee and General Committee –for their commitment to running our club this year.
Registration Day is 3rd February from 10am-1pm.
I look forward to seeing our Mini-Roos program continue to grow under the new Coordinator Darren Harris and his team of helpers. We boast nearly 170 players from the Under 5 to Under 11 Age Groups.
Our Senior Men’s team have a new senior coach Nagus Henry. Pre-season training has commenced Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6:30pm come and have a run and bring your friends.
Our Senior Women’s coach Darin Fitzsimmons is excited to take on this role coaching and I wish him and the Women all the best for this season. Pre-season training has commenced Tuesday nights at 6:30pm come and have a run and bring your friends.
I would like to thank long-serving Executive members Gary Holt and Caron Stiler and Dave Rudder who are stepping down from Executive roles at the club, for their assistance and time over many seasons.
We have some wonderful volunteers at our club, everyone needs to remember that these people are giving up their own time to allow players to play our great game and assist our great club.
The club is always looking for people that can assist wherever possible. Sometimes all it takes is 1-2 hours of your time per season to continue to keep Wodonga Diamonds wonderful. It is true that ‘many hands make light work’ and I ask that all members look at ways that they can contribute. At the end of the day we are all here with the same goal – great club, great football.
Club President – 2019
