Not only did they win an award for ‘’Outstanding Service & Trade’’, they took the accolade for ‘’Shire Business of the Year 2017’’ Well done to Stuart and his amazing team!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR AL2s - 2017 CHAMPIONS!! The lads defeated Lilli Pilli in a gutsy, well deserved 1-0 win in a game that went into extra time through wind and rain and delighted a big GRFC crowd. WELL DONE LADS!!!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR W14Bs: 2017 MINOR PREMIERS & PREMIERS! Our girls won 1-0 and dominated the entire game versus Bangor. Shout out to super goalie Paola Pastura for saving a penalty with literally the last touch of the game. WELL DONE GIRLS!!! 

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 12Cs: MINOR PREMIERS & PREMIERS! The boys claimed the championship with a big 3-1 win over Como. Well done boys!!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR W12B-1s: UNDEFEATED MINOR PREMIERS & PREMIERS! Well done girls! Super awesome achievement!!

 What an amazing night our GRFC Charity Shield fundraiser in support of Nathan Bull was, raising $18,664.85 was an amazing effort! It was so wonderful to see so many members of Georges River FC come together and help in numerous ways throughout the day and enjoy the night together. The Bull family were blown away with how many people came to support Nathan's fundraiser and couldn't be more thankful for each dollar that was raised that night. A special thank you to Caroline Hills and Sarah Hill for helping out with all the behind the scenes jobs, the committee members for being so helpful and the W21B's and 45B's for entertaining everyone in the Charity Shield match. A huge thank you for everyone who came along that night and helped out in anyway, there's a whole lot of heart at GRFC!

CONGRATULATIONS to our U8As, Runners-Up in the Sylvania Gala Day. Lady Luck definitely not on their side as they were beaten by the home team with a kick fired after the final siren had sounded, but it was a great achievement for the boys. Well done! 

Congratulations to our 35Cs, W21Bs, SWDs and W30B-2s on sensational seasons - all finished top 3 but unfortunately won't be joining our W12B-1s, W14Bs, 12Cs and AL2s in next weekend's Grand Finals.

Congratulations to our W12B-2s on finishing their season in 3rd place. The girls fought hard against Cronulla RSL in their Final and were unlucky not to score. The final result was 0-0 after extra time. Well done girls, you've done us all proud, especially with the entire team playing up an age group... What a force our W12s will be in 2018!

GRFC are pleased to be involved in the IMB Bank Cook Community Classic this year, the Classic is an initiative created by the Hon. Scott Morrison to assist not for profit organisations such as ours.

Here is a link should you wish to read more about the classic.

One of the major fundraising events as part of the Classic is a raffle, with fantastic prizes, first prize 2 Qantas premium economy return flights to LA and $1000 spending money.  

Please download this flyer with further details of prizes.  You may wish to print this to assist you with ticket sales.

To provide an incentive for ticket sales, GRFC is offering the following as additional prizes:

- $500 Westfield voucher to the family that sells the most tickets

- Pizza party in the clubhouse to the team that sells the most tickets (including adult beverages)

So why not challenge your team mates to sell as many tickets as possible and you could win both prizes offered by GRFC!!

We are currently experiencing growth in our club, with the largest number of members in 10 years, and our committee is extremely conscious of the need to improve our playing fields and club amenities. 

100% of the sales of raffle tickets will go straight back to GRFC, with the money going towards improvements to benefit all members.

We’d be delighted if each family could sell at least one book (10 tickets per book @ $2.00 / ticket) and the Manager of one playing member per family has been provided with 1 book of tickets for each family to be distributed this weekend.

We’d be even more delighted if you could sell more books (they’re an easy sell at workplaces, extended family and around the playing fields (hit up opposition teams) on game days).  Should you require more than the one book allocated per family, the please contact Club Secretary & Head Manager Debbie Kearns head.manager@grfc.com.au who will arrange for more books to be provided to you.

All tickets SOLD OR UNSOLD must be returned along with the money to your manager by Round 18 - please use the envelope you received tickets in and ensure to re-stick it to secure money

It has been many years since GRFC have conducted a fund raiser to directly support the club, I hope that all GRFC families will support this initiative.
