After securing the TSL Senior Premiership in 2016 the Club is looking forward to the 2017 season with great anticipation.
The Club's loss of premiership players has been widely publicised and is not the preferred end to a Premiership season, however this situation has also paved the way for the clubs young talent to step into senior roles. The club has had some great inclusions this season in the playing group Zac Webster, Harry Parker, Dylan Grant and Josh Davie. Off the field we have added Nathan Foale as Senior Assistant and Jamie Ling as Development League Coach. The club is very proud of these appointments and welcome both former players back to the Black & White.
The Board, volunteers and members of the Glenorchy District Football Club are looking forward to the new season as the Club defends the 2016 TSL senior title and settles into the first full season in the new Club facility at KGV. While parts of the building are still being fitted out the focus now is making sure all operating systems are up for the Club to operate successful and to fit out the building so over the year it is transformed from a new site into Clubrooms with memorabilia and Club trophies and wares being put back on display.
The Club will have four teams playing in 2017. Seniors, Development League, Womens TSWL Premier League and the U/18's. We wish all four teams and support staff a successful year. Moving into the new building has brought the Senior Club, Junior Club and Past Players group closer and we look forward to several joint events and alignment of personnel and resources this year to make the Club even stronger.
We hope to see memberships and sponsorships grow this year and encourage all Magpie fans to get down to KGV and get involved with your Club this season. For information on the Club and events will be posted on this website, or register for the newsletter or call the Club on 0362729593.
