The Lorne Football Netball Club welcomes everyone to our website.
New Faces Join The Committee
The Lorne Football Club was established in 1896 and is an integral part of the heart & soul of Lorne. It has a proud history and has been a dominate club with an outstanding record.
Over the past few years the Club has been held together by a very small committee. The dedication of this group of people and especially Janet Smartt is greatly appreciated by everyone in the Club & Community.
Recognising the unsustainability of such a mountain of work on a few, members representing a cross section of our community have put their hands up to help ensure that the long term viability of the LFNC continues.
The Club's 2014 Annual General Meeting was held on Saturday 25th October. The meeting was very well attended by members of the Club demonstrating keen interest to come together, support and ensure the LFNC will remain successful for the future.
The following members accepted Executive Positions :
Ken Hosking - President
Shelley Ryan - Vice President
Maxine Spizzica - Secretary
Clive Goldsworthy - Treasurer
In additional the following members have agreed to be part of the General Committee :
Hayley Bloor (Netball Coordinator)
Kevin van Deuren
It takes a community to build a club. A club that is well resourced, continues to provides a healthy & active outlet for our children and younger members of our town, performs consistently on both the football and netball grounds & most importantly is a community gathering place for us all.
Over the next few weeks the Committee will establish a number of Sub-committees to ensure the administration of the Club is more evenly shared by all members. This will provide opportunities for all members of the Club to assist in some small way.
More details will be forthcoming shortly.
With the 2014 season coming to an end, it's now time to look towards the 2015 season and beyond. Our first fundrasing event is this Saturday 1st November (Melbourne Cup Weekend). We are holding a BBQ tent at the Fair on the Foreshore. We need help for shifts from 12-2pm and 2-4pm. The more people we have to help, the easier the work will be for those involved. If you can assist during these times (even if it's only for an hour!) please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thankyou in advance!
Senior Football Coach Appointed

The club is entering a re-building faze on the football field, and we think Jason is the man to help us climb back up the ladder. Good luck to Jason and the boys for Season 2015!
