Community Pitch 2017

Posted on June 26th, 2017 with 0 Comments

Footscray players dressed to impress at the Community Pitch night, hosted by the Seddon Community branch of the Bendigo Bank. Our pitch involved players in bathers and swimming caps, the club song and our secret weapon – two cute babies! We obviously made an impression, bagging $1350 in donations from generous local businesses! Thanks to Seddon Community Bank for this great opportunity!

It is with great regret that we announce that life member and current Vice-President Gordon passed away on December 12th, 2016 after a long illness. Gordon joined Footscray Swimming Club in 1946 and remained a staunch and active member for the rest of his life, holding multiple positions on the committee over the years, including multiple terms as President. Together with his wife Val, he started a family that has been instrumental in the success of the club over 3 generations. Gordon also made an important contribution to the sport of water polo in Victoria through his coaching and refereeing services.

Gordon was the life and soul of the club and will be greatly missed by all.
