Our netball girls have done us proud again with the Section 1 and 2 teams Premiers again this season. Section 1 have now won 9 flags in a row and 10 out of 11 seasons the competition has been running! Section 2 has also joined the party by going back to back, we now field 5 teams in the NFNL competition and they have been a great addition to our club. We must thank Kristie Gannon and Carolyn Hansen for managing the teams and providing us with such great players.
Since 1888, the Diamond Creek Football Club has provided a community focus for regional recreation. A key aim of any football club is to have on field success and win premierships. The Diamond Creek Football Club has certainly performed admirably in this regard having achieved Nine Seniors Premierships and a host of Reserves and Under 19’s flags. And yes it’s quite true to say that the Senior Club has been a leader in the region throughout the last 125 years. We pride ourselves in having a local Football and Netball Club for the youth to aspire to join and develop Teamwork and Leadership Skills.
Today the club continues to build on the success of a vital, active, gritty and highly successful Junior Football Club as proven by the Under 17 Team achieving the Premiership in 2014 with many of those players getting the Under 19’s into the finals in 2015.
We have seen how the development opportunities offered by both Junior and Senior Clubs has resulted in some great memories for players, parents and families which is highlighted by four club greats Max Hudgston, Heath and Rhys Shaw, and Jack Anthony going on to make their mark at the highest level, and we are sure there will be many more that aspire and go onto demonstrate the benefits of a solid development at DCFNC.
In recent times the club has adopted the recommendations of the AFL and strengthened interests with the Diamond Creek Netball Club to develop in the long term a strong sporting club in the region.
Going forward, the Club is determined to drive on field success and re-establish itself as a dominant and successful long term Club within Division One of the Northern Football League. Continuous improvement in all areas of the Club operation from improved recruiting, better club facilities to rival those in the region, Professional club management, with a drive to improve and sustain long term relationships with Sponsors of all levels and finally an absolute determination to build relationships at all levels within the wider Diamond Creek Community. The Seniors improved their performance by 50% in season 2015 with both the Reserves and Under 19’s playing finals football
We are part of this Community, of this great Town, from the youngest to the oldest and we are very Proud of Our History and we wish to invite you to be involved as a Sponsor of our Successful Future.
