From the TSL website

tsl 2015 rookie

Glenorchy Football Club utility, Jordon Arnold, has won the Matthew Richardson Medal in his first full season in the Southern Cross Tasmanian State League, having played all 18 games in the home and away season.

Awarded to the Rookie of the Year, players eligible for the Matthew Richardson Medal must be under 23 years of age, have played less than 20 games at the commencement of the season, and in no more than two years of senior football.

Jordon (aged 19) commenced his football with Claremont Junior Football Club before making the transition to the Glenorchy Junior Football Club in under 15’s, in 2014 Jordon made his senior State League debut playing 13 games during the course of the season whilst also being a member of the State U18 Academy program.

Jordon’s playing achievements prior to his foray in the TSL indicate that Jordon had the attributes to be capable of playing at the TSL level.

– U12 Best & Fairest, Claremont Junior Football Club
– U13 Best & Fairest Runner Up, Claremont Junior Football Club
– U14 Best & Fairest, Claremont Junior Football Club
– U15 Best & Fairest, Glenorchy Junior Football Club
– Under 16 State Academy
– Under 18 State Academy

Glenorchy District Football Club, Head Coach Aaron Cornelius said” Jordon has had a very consistent year for the club; he has played a variety of positions and taken some big game day tasks with a great attitude”.

“Jordon’s team first mentality has pushed him up in the eyes of his team mates and has gained great respect from them as they know he will play his role on game day every week, his application to a consistent training ethic and hard work on and off the field has raised his game to another level”.

“Jordon is very easy to coach through always wanting to better himself and the team; this is a fantastic recognition for all the hard work he has put into developing his game”.

Tasmanian State League General Manager, Shaun Young, congratulated Arnold on winning the award that recognises one of Tasmania’s greatest footballers, former Richmond star Matthew Richardson.

“The Matthew Richardson Medal is named after one of Tasmania’s modern day greats, and it is great recognition for Jordon to receive the medal in his first full year in the State League, Jordon’s achievement demonstrates to those players that have the attributes and desire to play at the highest possible level in the state of what can be achieved if they have the commitment and work ethic to improve and take their game to the next level” Young said.

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.
