As the 2020 season looks tantalisingly close to getting underway, we’d like to welcome our new Club President Matt Marinovich.
Matt has been part of the Committee for some time, was instrumental in getting Starkick set up and was also previously the Vice President. If you see Matt out and about, please say hello.
We’d also like to say a big thanks to our outgoing President Peter Keleman, who guided the Club over the past few years to the great position we are in today.
A few words from Matt…
I am a born and bred local East Freo guy who has spent the bulk of my life living in and around this great club. This includes representing the mighty blue and whites as a kid right the way through my juniors. I absolutely love the club and have an enormous amount of great memories from my time playing and training there.
As a kid you never really appreciate all the work that goes on in the background to help it run and it is now my intention to support the club that has given so much to me and now to my kids. Once we get back on the field, we have some really exciting times ahead which I’m proud to be a part of. The opening of our new and improved club rooms (they haven’t changed since I was a kid 35+ year ago, so much overdue!), the incredible growth of our girls and special needs footy groups, an improvement to our ground surface and lighting and just seeing more and more kids come down to enjoy having a kick with their mates.
I’m really looking forward to the role and meeting as many of our great members as possible.
