Welcome to the Power House Amateur Football Club
Our football club is filled with tremendously interesting people. It always has been. When you look around, our club is filled with people from all walks of life. Professionals, tradies, students, social animals, recluses, workers, footy heads, families, doers, watchers, helpers, volunteers…but they all have one thing in common…their absolute love of our club.
As I move into my 7th year as President and my 36th year at the club, I still see the same traits and types as I have seen in previous seasons…just with different faces.
I see Senior Coach Ant Voyage working tirelessly behind the scenes building and preparing the playing group.
I see that long serving committee member and player Paddy Barrett is now on his way back home to Melbourne from his wedding in Ireland.
Former Premiership Player and Club Legend Ian Dakin is in constant contact wanting to know how the pre-season I shaping up while former Senior Coach, player and now passionate supporter Tony Miller is tracking our progress on our Facebook page.
Life Member, 2 x Premiership player and former President and Coach Craig Richardson is in contact asking how we will fare in 2016 while ruckman Steve Devine and 2015 Senior Captain Adam Collett are putting in the hard yards pounding the pavement in preparation for a big pre-season
Senior players Eddie Nyary and Ben Circosta have spent last week down at Lord Somers Camp undergoing some life changing experiences
This past week, the club match committee met to discuss the progress of our recruitment campaign, discuss the playing list and build our training sessions inline for our first home game in round one.
In the meantime, the full committee of the football club met for several hours last weekend to plan through the whole of 2016.
Needless to say, there has been heaps going on at our club over the past few months. Plenty of people have put in plenty of hours…the results of which you will all see and benefit from by the time the season starts in earnest on Saturday April 9 against Aquinas at home.
As I do every year, I look to this season in anticipation that we work hard, prepare ourselves and work together to deliver the best results possible, the best experience possible and the best club possible in 2016.
Welcome to Season 2016!
Tear ‘em down…
