Glenorchy District Football Club - The Magpies


2019 GRACE AIDENThe Centennial Season just got more exciting, with Aiden Grace the latest recruit to fly into The Nest!

Previously from Clarence, Aiden led the Geelong Football League's goal kicking last season, booting 59 majors for runners up St Mary's.

That form earned him three call-ups to the Geelong VFL team and he produced a classy 4-goal performance against minor premiers Richmond.

If you would like to sponsor Aiden and receive a Framed Centennial Jumper along with other benefits, sign up for our Centennial Player Sponsorship

Senior Club Coach Paul Kennedy is excited about having a player of Aiden's calibre at the club for the Centennial Year and beyond.

"Gracey is an outstanding talent but he's also a great example for his teammates with the way he goes about training, which is impressive for a 21-year-old," Kennedy said.

"He still has aspirations to play at the highest level, as a club we fully support that and we look forward to the big impact he's going to have for Glenorchy in the TSL."

Grace's first home outing at KGV is on Saturday 6 April in the Heritage Game against North Hobart.

The Glenorchy District Football Club is proud to announce Peter Barwick as TSLW Senior Coach for the 2019 season, taking the reins from premiership coach Craig Grace.

Peter, a Playing Life Member of the club and GDFCW Assistant Coach in recent years, commented:

“It’s a great honour to head up the panel as senior coach in the club's Centennial Year. It’s also a privilege and a challenge to take over from Craig, who has done an amazing job, not only for the Glenorchy Football Club, but for women’s football in general."

Peter will head up a Coaching Panel of (from left to right) Garry Barwick (midfield coach), Dean Webster (backs coach) and Sandy Eaton (forwards coach).

In a first for the club, the team’s opening game will be on ANZAC Day under lights at KGV, including the unfurling of the 2018 Premiership Flag.

Enjoy the Thirteen Plays of Christmas from 2018, see you soon for our Centenary Year:

2018 EATON SANDY AWARD
In a befitting presentation at last Friday's annual AFL Women's Lunch at Blundstone Arena, our own Sandy Eaton was named Tasmanian Woman Footballer of the Year.

One of the finest GDFCW Players the club has ever produced, Sandy has been an ornament to the game and the heart and soul of our Women's team since it's inception in 2014.

Sandy announced her retirement from football after this season's premiership win, but she is very keen to remain involved with the club, and no doubt her experience and knowledge will be a benefit for our future GDFCW stars for many seasons to come.

Congratulations Sandy!
