Collegians Football Club

This season has been pretty tough going for us at Collegians FC. Between player injuries and mixed availability our depth has been really tested. Our Women are certainly showing the way and with good player numbers both the Women’s Reserves and Seniors are pushing for finals. The Reserves have a very good chance of making the finals with only three games remaining.

The Boys’ Seniors and Reserves have had only one win each up to Round 10. Unfortunately we missed playing the bottom side and two games due to the lockdown.

Off-field, Mark Hibbins and Emma Carney have been very busy signing a couple of new sponsors and pushing up our membership numbers.

We are always looking for new sponsors and members, particularly coterie members who we want to become a big part of the club and help with our financial security.

Please see our new website for all details of sponsorship and membership: collegiansfc.com.au

One of this year’s highlights was our Anzac Day match against Old Scotch where we had a win and retained the MacNeil Cup. We play for this prize against Old Scotch each year to celebrate the link between Wesley and Scotch as partner schools during the war. Wesley students went to classes and sport at Scotch while the Army took over the St Kilda Road grounds.

The Club is always looking for more players and volunteers to help with jobs on Saturday or on Thursday nights when we feed 100-odd players each week.

For anyone looking to get involved at our dynamic club and enjoy being with like-minded people, contact Co-Presidents Rod Nancarrow 0412 687 430 or Mark Hibbins 0409 406 442 for more information.

The Alan Mitchell Club's medallion

Alan Mitchell Club

The Alan Mitchell Rowing Club is looking forward to presenting a special commemorative medallion to the Girls First VIII for their historic win at the Head of the River this year.

In addition to supporting school rowing, the Club is actively encouraging Wesley alumni to experience the thrills, improved fitness and social connections the sport has to offer. Places are available in existing crews, and new members also have the opportunity to form their own crew.

Contact Club president Ana McCloskey by email at ana.mccloskey@gmail.com to organise a tour of the sheds and to find out more about the club.

The club also has a long history of supporting the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia through participation in Rowathons on the Murray and Darling Rivers. Join a crew now to take part in this event in September!

The 2021 Elsternwick Cato golf day and lunch will be held on Friday 3 September at the Riversdale Golf Club.
