It is hard to believe that we have now completed 7 rounds and winter football commences this week.

It was really humbling to see a packed house on Sunday night to celebrate Indigenous Round. We were privileged to have Hall of Fame and Premiership player Syd Jackson and former Sydney Swans coach Colin Kinnear talk about how football shaped their lives. We learnt how Syd Jackson was a pioneer for indigenous players who now make up more than 10% of current AFL Players.

Syd Jackson is an ambassador for Red Dust Healing and Outback Academy. If you would like to more about their great work or make a donation, please visit

Congratulations also must go to our Anne Marie Halewood medalists. The late Anne Marie Halewood was a champion in promoting reconciliation and indigenous round at our club. The Anne Marie Halewood medal is awarded to a player whom represents the virtues of teamwork, selflessness and courage. A special thank you to Melinda Read, our tireless Social Director for her coordination.

Just a reminder that Trivia Night is this Friday. This is a ticketed event; hence any queries should be directed to Dean Arnel at

This Sunday will be hosted by the Colts, Youth Girls and U16 Age Groups. We will have special presentations from former AFL Footballer (and Colts 1 Coach) Rob Bolzon on how football translates into life skills and representatives of the St Mary’s Senior Football Club to talk about the transition into senior football.

Finally, it is important we continue to support our supporters. One of our major sponsors, Stuart Broadley & Associates, aim to help you achieve financial success and peace of mind by providing you with a personalised financial strategy. For more information, please visit
