I'd like to welcome you to season 2018 and start by introducing myself. My name is Justine and this will be my first year as President of Avoca FC. I’m extremely proud to be this clubs first female president, and I’m sure not the last as we have a very dynamic and strong history of women’s football in our club.
I’ve been involved with the club now for around 12 years, 8 on the committee as Equipment Manager so I’m sure my face is familiar to most of you. It’s a daunting task following Mark Norris, our previous President, but I’m surrounded by a very passionate committee, most familiar faces, and some fantastic new ones who will help me guide the Avoca FC ship this year.
I’d like to thank our previous President of 5 years Mark Norris, I’m very humbled to be following in his footsteps as he has left very big shoes to fill. Mark has been an outstanding leader in our club, and will continue to play a role behind the scenes.
As a club we manage to grow, season after season, and I know this is because we are well run and well organised and I’m sure this will continue, although we are always looking for more help and new faces to help us carry on this way. We are a huge club, 3rd biggest on the coast and as such need a strong group of helpers and volunteers. This doesn’t mean you have to take up a committee position, but may just mean a few hours throughout the season to help in small ways. Please contact us if you think you can contribute. We are nothing without the help of volunteers.
