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.

In recognition of his efforts and to say thanks, Craig has been awarded with a $25 voucher to use in the bar, enjoy mate!
THE Glenorchy Magpies Football Club is throwing its support behind the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal for 2015.
Players will swap their usual black and white socks for red ones when they hit King George V (KGV) Oval on Saturday 23 May for the “Red Game” – a dedicated match against Devonport Football Club to raise money and awareness of the Salvos’ biggest annual fundraiser.
“We are honoured to be an official community partner of the appeal, so we are more than happy to get behind this great cause and we urge others to do the same,” Magpies senior coach Aaron Cornelius said.
Lieutenant Amy Jones from the Salvation Army’s Moonah Corps and Community Centre said money collected at the game would assist residents in the northern suburbs.
“Whether it is emergency relief, financial counselling, drug and alcohol rehabilitation services or providing places of safety, the Salvation Army can only continue to do our work with your support,” she said.
The Speaker of Tasmania’s House of Assembly and Red Shield Appeal chair for the Moonah Corps, Elise Archer, applauded the Magpies for their community spirit.
“It is fantastic to see these footy players being positive role models by giving a helping hand to Tasmanians that need it most,” she said.
“Whether you are a ‘die-hard’ fan, a club supporter, or even a footy novice, the Red Game is a great opportunity to show your support for the wonderful work the Salvation Army does and to help those less fortunate.”
The Red Game between Glenorchy and Devonport will be held on Saturday 23 May from 1pm at KGV in Glenorchy.
The Salvation Army’s 2015 Red Shield Appeal will run from 27 May until 6 June, with the doorknock weekend on 30 to 31 May.
