Presidents Report

Happy New Year one and all and I hope you’re refreshed and ready for a big year.

As you can see from the attached photos work is well under way at Elgar Park with the
old surface largely removed, and the civil works under way to re-grade levels for the
new surface. At this stage we anticipate the pitch to be finished in late March and ready
for play early April, but the final date will depend on weather and progress in coming

In the meantime training will continue at Koonung High School.


Our new website has been developed by Evoke IT (run by our own Sher Singh a.k.a Sunny). The web
site is now up and running at, and is a fresh new look with links to
social media and an inbuilt calendar. The team is busy populating with content and this
will mature over time.
