Message from Craig McKenzie
Besides those personal achievements, without a doubt my best achievement is the number of senior players I have been fortunate enough to develop.  Watching them play each Saturday afternoon is an absolute thrill and highlight for me. I can’t wait for our new systems and innovative programs to be brought to life so even more high quality people and footballers lead this great club to the inevitable future success.
