President’s Report


Old Scotch Football Club appoints inaugural full time General Manager

The Old Scotch Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Peter Simpson as its first General Manager. Peter comes to the club with a wealth of experience in the sports industry. From 2004 until 2014 he was both the general manager and a Board member of the Northcote Cricket Club. In 2014 he was appointed as the Old Xaverians Football Club’s General Manager, and since that time he has delivered that club’s strategic and business plans, overseen significant grown its corporate partnerships, provided financial surety and developed relationships with key community stakeholders.


Peter commences in his role with us on Monday 12 November and I am sure you will join me in affording Peter a warm welcome to the Old Scotch Football Club.



Roman Franetic wins the Winner Takes it All Reverse Draw

A highlight of the 2018 presentation Night was the calling of the card as big names feel during the reverse draw. The crescendo of the crowd’s delight as each of Rob Millar’s ten tickets were removed had to be seen to be believed. Roman Franetic’s generosity to the club was rewarded when he was the last man standing and collected the $5000 prize. Typically Roman refused to take all his winnings, donating a large portion back to the club and splashing another chunk of it over the bar during the night!

Jack Bull wins third McGregor Medal

Men’s 1st XVIII Captain Jack Bull stormed home to win his third McGregor medal on Thursday evening at the Club’s annual Presentation Night.


Approximately 150 people were at the Cardinal Pavilion at Scotch to celebrate the achievements of the club’s seven teams in season 2018, and how fitting it was that Leigh McGregor and his family were in attendance to present the award named in his family’s honour.


Club legend Rick ‘Cowboy’ Western was honoured on the night for his long standing service to the club. This season, Rick oversaw the team management of our Men’s Under 19 program; no small feat as we fielded three teams most week. Cowboy just gets on with things in his quiet, understated way and he really is what the club is all about.


Joan De Vond was recognized for her tireless efforts overseeing our registrations and team managing the Men’s 3rd XVIII when she was awarded the Bill Pearson Most Valuable Person award. In all respects Joan is a MVP; she is hard working and reliable and absolutely committed to the welfare of everyone associated with the club. She has a huge heart and is a most fitting recipient of this award. Barbara Holder added to the night by presenting Joan with a top shelf bottle of bubbles!


The first awards presented on the night were the awards for the Old Scotch Stars. Lily Goss capped an outstanding year by claiming the inaugural best and fairest award, polling 69 votes to pip Lucy Morley on 67 votes.


Jack Bull’s Hong Kong Bucks extravaganza threw a small spanner in the works for the organisers, but the Men’s 1st XVIII were next presented, allowing Jack time to be rushed off to the airport to make his flight with father Steve carrying his bags. This award capped another outstanding year at the club for Jack. I believe he is one of the greatest players to have represented the club and the way he conducts himself on and off the field is a great exemplar for all. Nick Jamieson was a most worthy runner up, particularly when you consider how much football he missed with his injured knee.


The Men’s 2nd and 3rd XVIII Best and Fairest awards were won by Charlie Long and Jack Otter respectively.


Peter Georgiadis won the Men’s Under 19 3rd XVIII best and fairest award and Luke Nicholls won the Men’s Under 19 2nd XVIII best and fairest award after having outstanding seasons. It was also wonderful to see Austin Harding recognised for his three year commitment to our men’s Under 19 program with the 2018 best and fairest award; a terrific achievement in such a strong field from the skipper.
