Our Baz off to the AFL Grand Final
Club Stalwart Barry Hassett (pictured with his wife, Sue) was recognised last year as Tasmanian Football's 'Volunteer of the Year” at a gala event at Wrest Point.
The award was hotly contested with many worthy volunteers nominated from leagues and teams throughout Tasmania, but it was 'Our Baz' who was adjudged the winner.
Barry's prize is a very generous 2019 AFL Grand Final package for 2 people provided by AFL Tasmania which he will be enjoying this weekend with his lovely (and very understanding) wife, Sue. The experience includes 3 days in Melbourne attending many Grand Final events including the traditional Friday parade and premium seats at the big game.
Barry Hassett is an institution at Anfield Street, and many describe him as the 'heart and soul' of the Glenorchy District Football Club. He has been involved at the club for well over 50 years in many capacities including Director, Team Manager and property steward to name a few. His commitment and love of the 'Mighty Magpies' is unparalleled and it would be hard to find a more dedicated football volunteer in Australia.
The Club acknowledges this wonderful initiative of AFL Tasmania to recognise and reward volunteers and their families who are the lifeblood of all football clubs.
On behalf of the Club, past and present, Barry and Sue, thanks for your support, commitment and tireless involvement with the Club. Enjoy this reward and recognition as a token of the esteem the Football community and the Glenorchy District Football Club hold for your amazing contributions.
John McCann President GDFC
New Town/Glenorchy Past Players and Officials Association
In recent months The Executive has been reduced to only five members following the resignation of our most recent President, Barry Connolly. Barry has accepted an invitation from Club President, John McCann, to join the GDFC Board while Leon Carr and Ray Careless also decided to commit more of their time in assisting the club on a general basis.
During their time these former members were a valuable part of our Association and we wish them well in their new roles with the Club.
Fortunately, we had only the last home game functions to conduct which allowed us to operate without any concerns. It also allowed us the opportunity to review our membership of both former and current members in an endeavour to at least fill the position of President.
Following a recent meeting with a prospective candidate, we are pleased to advise he was only too willing (despite a little arm twisting) to accept the role. It is our pleasure to confirm former player, Greg “Sheepy” Saunders is now our Association President and looks forward to continuing the good work done by his predecessor.
As a former President of Rotary Claremont, current committee member of Ronald McDonald House and prior to retirement was employed by Australia Post for 45 years which should prove beneficial for him in his new and exciting role as our President.
