Most of our supporters out there know that if it wasn't for our loyal band of volunteers, our club would cease to exist!  We are very fortunate to have a dedicated bunch that bleed black and white and contribute many hours of their time to help the GDFC survive and prosper.  

We would like to recognise our volunteers and have introduced a "Volunteer of the Month"  award to say thank you for all your hard work and efforts.

Our inaugural winner is a man of few words but has been instrumental in our fundraising activities and puts in the hard yards every week for the club.  Whether it be setting and packing up at Bingo, selling raffle tickets at various locations or just helping out on game day, Craig Peters is a man that the club owes a big thank you!

In recognition of his efforts and to say thanks, Craig has been awarded with a $25 voucher to use in the bar, enjoy mate!

Statewide football returned to the tight confines of Queenborough Oval last Saturday when our Glenorchy boys took on a determined Hobart City outfit in a classic arm-wrestle.  

Always looking for that extra edge, "AC" took the opportunity to recreate the dimensions of Sandy Bay's former home ground by using witches hats at training last Thursday, and it may well have been the difference in securing the 4 points.  

The game opened at a fast pace, and although the 'Pies had much of the play in the first quarter, nothing separated the 2 teams at the first break, but it was the second quarter effort that had the coach fired up at half-time.  Hobart City led by as much as 25 points during the second term, and if it wasn't for a couple of late goals, the margin could have well been more than the 14 points the scoreboard showed at the main break.

After a deserved "spray" from AC that had the paint peeling from the change room walls, our boys came out in the 3rd quarter and showed exactly what playing for the Black and White is all about.  With Mitch Rainbird dominating, Glenorchy piled on 7 goals in 10 minutes in a relentless, skilful display of persistent running football.  Rhys Mott was the link man during the term, setting up countless opportunities, and big-man Cameron Duffy gave our on-ballers first use, time and time again.  A 14-point half-time deficit was turned into a 9 point 3/4 time lead, and with more tackles in the quarter for the entire match,

AC urged the boys to keep up the pressure into the final quarter.  A see-sawing dramatic 4th quarter had Hobart City regain the lead, but 2 late goals from Jaye Bowden steadied the Magpie Ship, and the final siren gave the boys a dramatic 15-point win.  Although slightly disappointed with the first half, "AC" was ecstatic with the effort shown when we had our backs to the wall.  

In the earlier game, our Development League team continued their fantastic start to the season with an 82 point win.  Aaron Grubb was on fire with 7 goals, and Shaun Stewart was brilliant with a best on ground performance.  

Make sure you make the trip down to the Twin Ovals this Saturday as our boys take on an improving Kingborough Tigers at 2pm!  Go Pies!

mccann john 100wThanks for coming to the new Glenorchy District Football Club website as part of our new online presence it is a great way to be across the latest Magpies' news from the Club. We will keep all interested supporters and, partners across the important ways to get behind the Club for membership, sponsorship, supporting the teams and events the Club is holding, being briefed on developments, following team performances and individual stats, getting to know our players, checking the club history, sponsors, delivery partners, staff, volunteers and our community.

The Club has for many years been a base for many smaller Clubs and community groups in the Northern suburbs of Hobart. We have also been involved with many community based partners to provide activities at the Club and outreach into our community. Our most visible programme currently is our schools and Junior Development programme but with the completion of our new Clubrooms in early 2016 we will be boosting our activities both at the Club and community outreach being driven from the Club. We will be combining with many of our current and some new partners to make sure the community of Glenorchy, surrounding areas  and our zone does  not miss out on programmes in recreation, well-being, healthy activity and group participation for all ages.

Get behind the GDFC Magpies this year and use our new website as a great source of information and interaction with the Club. Please send through any ideas you have to improve it further.

Welcome to the new GDFC website moving forward into the future, 2015 and beyond.

This new look website is not only fantastic for up to date information but provides an in-depth look at the proud history of this great football club.

The new look website is not the only exciting thing happening in Magpie Land at the moment.

The playing group has completed a big pre-season under the guidance of our new strength & conditioning Coach, Sam Yee.  Sam Yee has been a massive inclusion to our program coming with a wealth of experience. He has this year’s playing group the fittest since the 1975 side.

With great addition to our playing group and a mix of old and new players returning, the club is looking forward to a big season.

This year the GDFC has 10 members in the Tasmanian under 18 program and in the under 16 Tasmanian Program. This is a clear indication of the great youth and potential for the near future of our senior playing group.

In saying this, make sure you check out our Facebook and Instagram account to see daily updates on the inner workings of this great football club.

This is a exciting time to get behind the football with the playing group set to be in the finals for the next 5 years and the addition of the first class facility at the ground.

Now is the time to get in and support the great community football club.
