Our Club and Our Community working as One

The Club had a much improved season across the board in 2015, with the Seniors and Development League both playing off in their respective Grand Finals after winning the minor Premierships. While not achieving ultimate success this year, a sound platform has been set for the next few years.

The media coverage for the Club this season has been hugely positive, and it was wonderful to see so many Glenorchy shops decked out in black and white, and to feel a true sense of community spirit develop around the GDFC teams representing the city.

There were many plusses we can all take out of the season, including players earning State representation, players and senior coach being nominated for teams of the year and a large number of young magpies playing for and being in the Mariners squad, as well as awards for the season including: Jaye Bowden's Peter Hudson Medal for the most goals in the TSL (narrowly defeating team-mate Daniel Muir by one goal) to take the title. Jaye was also awarded the Alistair Lynch Medal on GF day after a runaway win in the Leagues' Best and Fairest count.

Other positives for the season included the U/18’s promising year and the women’s team again making the Preliminary Final.

The final major Club event for this season was the "Banjo" Patterson Best and Fairest count. It was great to see such a strong attendance like most of this seasons Club functions. The assembled saw the current club champion Jaye Bowden win the "Banjo" Patterson perpetual trophy and be awarded the Roy Cazaly Medal again.

It was a year of continued rebuilding for the Club with the leadership and coaching group introducing the “Building to be the Best” slogan for our 2015 campaign. The sentiment was correct and our teams did not let us down and no doubt will continue  to ‘build’  for sustained on-field success over the next few seasons.

I would like to thank all the volunteers for their efforts in 2015 and note the leadership of the groups provide by Carol De Jersey in the Kitchen, Bretta Button Kiosk, Barry Hassett, Des Peters and Grant Allford in the Football Department, Dennis Bird and Chris Hutton in the trainers and medical team,  Ray Court in Membership, Terry Nichols, Dennis Bird and Kelly Hunt in the Bingo arena who have done a great job keeping Bingo going with the moves during the construction period and still being a major revenue source for the Club. Also Steve Maxwell and his board, coaches and volunteers with Junior football. Craig Peters was also a great help with regular support tasks around the Club and assisting with logistics for Club administration. To all the volunteers this year, too many to mention, again on behalf of the board we say, thank you.

I would like to acknowledge the Board of 2015 for their efforts and look forward to working with those that have put their hand up again and welcome new directors to the role. To those who are retiring we thank you for your efforts during a time of great change at the Club. The unity of the Board in meeting the challenges and opportunities of 2015 has been great to see. To achieve a trading profit in 2015 during the delayed transition to the new facility has been pleasing.

I would also like to note and thank our Corporate Partners Tattsbet, Network Gaming and Major sponsors during 2015, Get Real (Tony  McCulloch), Wrest Point, Cascade, Warren Ross Accounting, 9/11, Talbot Hotel and Revive. We also thank our raft of minor sponsors.

2016 will be an important year for the Club. We will be moving into our new premises on the site of the 1968 rooms and commencing a new long term  tenancy arrangements for the Cresswell Beakley Stand and the KGV Oval. We will be a stronger Club on-field and build on the success of 2015. Given the Clubs capabilities with our new facilities, we have a great opportunity to  strengthen our links with the Glenorchy community. It will be a great period for all supporters and the community to get behind the Club. Thanks again to all those who have contributed to GDFC in 2015.

Bring on 2016. 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.

GDFC. Our Club and Our community working together as one

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.

Senior Coach
