End of an Era – Note from our President

To all GGFC members,

I wanted to share with you that I have recently advised the Golden Grove Football Club Committee of my decision to stand down as President of our great club. Although the decision has been extremely difficult, I feel now is my chance to spend more time with my family, and concentrate on a career opportunity that I have been seeking for some time.

I joined GGFC in only our third year of existence, starting out as Junior Coordinator, and then progressing through various roles and ultimately becoming President in 2005. A lot has changed during my tenure, and I am very proud of what our club has been able to achieve, although a couple of things that I look back on stand out for me, including:

  • the rise of our seniors, moving up through the divisions
  • our junior program being the envy of every Junior Football Club in Australia
  • being able to secure the Federal Grant to build Harper’s Field, which is now the home of the Kookaburras
  • seeing a number of our juniors being selected in the national draft, and making their AFL debut, showing that our junior program was successful

While it will be hard to walk away from so many fond memories and true friends, I promise to still be around the club for a chat or a drink.

I would like to thank our Members for giving me the opportunity to run this club for as long as I have, and also thank my wife Brenda and our boys for all their support over the years.

I wish our Club every success in the future.

In the interim, the GGFC Executive Committee has appointed our current Vice President (Kate Grandey) to step into the role of President until the AGM is held early in 2019.

Ian Graham
