2017 – Consolidating our Position in Division 1
We who play and follow Australian Rules come from a tribal game. We are defined by our clubs, and our loyalties. The colours and the characters create the ties that link us to our club – our football family, our community – forever.
The Whittlesea Football and Netball Club needs you now, more than ever. Since 1896, we have been part of Australia’s greatest game and Season 2017 has us return to Showground Stadium with an intense desire to consolidate a position in Division One football within the Northern Football League after claiming the Division Two Premiership in 2015 and securing our Division 1 spot in 2016.
Coach James Atkins along his experienced coaching staff and on field leaders in Justin Sherman and Andrew Fairchild, will head a dedicated Eagles outfit in 2017. We are excited to see new ruckman Tim Aitkins take the field alongside consistent performers such as Saddington, Robinson, Atta, Horman and the Dysons. They will be supported by a group of extremely talented younger players, most of whom are Whittlesea born and bred – all of them bigger and better from a strong preseason campaign and their Division 1 experiences last year.
In 2017, you can be part of our journey toward our sixteenth flag. Whether this is your first season as a member, you are new to the Whittlesea Community, or the Club is deep in your family heritage, you will be embraced as member of the Whittlesea Football and Netball Club.
Remember that the Whittlesea Football and Netball Club requires as many members as possible so it can continue to build the best facilities and teams at Showground Stadium to make our community proud and have 2017 be our most successful year yet.
