Bringing old foes together

David Lee July 29, 2015

AFTER the great success of last month’s Vic Country and Vic Metro Masters game at Deakin Reserve, a public meeting is set to be held at 6pm on this coming Monday at Kialla Knights Cricket Rooms to bring to reality the establishment of Shepparton’s very own ‘Masters Team.’
AFL Goulburn Murray Football Development Manager, Mark Lambourn is a key driver in setting up the team.
“Since the state game at Deakin Reserve there has been an overwhelming swell of interest to create a Shepparton Masters Team.
“We have set up a Facebook group which already has 280 members and momentum is growing towards establishing a committee to set up and run the club.
“The meeting on August 3 will be to provide information about Masters football and really just to get interested people in the one room to work out the feasibility and how we go about setting the team up.
“State Masters League President, Wayne Hall is coming along to answer some questions and to outline the process of applying for acceptance into the Vic Country Masters League for next year.
“Members of the Echuca EMU Masters Football Club will also be at the meeting to talk about the competition, the rules, the fun and the social connectivity with the community.
“A main driver for the set up of the team is to promote men’s health, both physically and mentally.
“For anyone interested in being part of this inaugural history making team and are looking for some fun we urge you to attend the meeting.
“We are looking for people to fill roles in all aspects, on and off field.”
If you are interested and unable to attend on the night, call AFL Goulburn Murray on 5823 9800 and for further information about Masters Football, visit
