The New Town & Glenorchy Past Players & Officials Association is now offering
‘First Senior Game Medallion'
Those who play their first senior game with the club in 2017 and forward, will be presented with a complimentary medallion by a Past Player of the club.
The medallions will be appropriately engraved with the player’s name, date and player number.
Past Players of the club will be contacted to be part of these presentations that will take place during ‘after game’ awards.
Players from previous years will be able to secure their respective medallions at a cost of $35.00 (includes engraving)
The New Town & Glenorchy Past Players & Officials Association has created ‘Player Number List’.
Player Number List has been collated commencing from the foundation year of the club 1919, to the current year and will be updated each season thereafter.
This affords the club to provide a personalised number to every senior player over the past ninety nine season period. Numbers were allocated to senior players between 1919 to 1941 and again from 1945 to 2016 alphabetically each year......and as they played their respective first senior game.
We have established the Glenorchy Magpies Foundation to support the important on and off field work of the Club.& Our initial project will be the finalisation and enhancement of the new clubrooms, function centre, café, and administration facility at KGV Oval. Our new home will be the most contemporary, largest community sport and recreation facility and precinct in Tasmania.
The finalisation and enhancement of the new facility at KGV will be a significant event in the club’s history, the beginning of an exciting new era for our club. Our new facility will enable us to put the team in the best position to achieve sustained success and to continue to contribute to the community in a meaningful way.
We are aiming to raise $200 000 in two years.
We are calling on all Glenorchy Magpies members and supporters to be a part of this special opportunity. After all, our history is only as good as the people who help make it.

Known by all the Glenorchy regulars and generations of players long-time supporter Tom Klug (father of Club champion John) was honoured by a plaque unveiling at KGV.
Tom has been attending Club games since he was a child and has rarely missed a fixture. Tom started following the Pies at the age of 11 prior to World War II. On Saturday at the Grand Final Replay a family gathering saw Tom unveil the plaque on the Anfield Street stand where he has stood and been a regular feature of the game day landscape for around 70 seasons. This has now been recognised.
Tom was thrilled with the plaque and the surprise of having a large section of his family present at KGV. The Club was represented at the unveiling by President John McCann, Senior Coach Aaron Cornelius, Club Captain Braydon Webb and Vice-Captain and 150 game milestone player Josh Arnold. We hope you witness many more Magpie victories at KGV Tom.
