Graham Leaves The Nest
With season 2020 kicking off shortly, Glenmore Park Football Club’s long-standing committee member Graham Moore has stepped down, after five successful years at the helm as President of the local sporting club.
Graham, who became President of Glenmore Park Football Club in 2015 after being the Club Treasurer for the previous 4 years, has overseen the club’s move to “The Nest” at Mulgoa Rise and the Under 12 Boys winning the State Cup in 2018 and the Under 18 Mens winning the Champions of Champions Trophy last year.
“This season, I’ve stepped down as President for personal reasons. It was probably a year earlier than initially expected, but I also think it’s a good time to allow someone else to bring fresh ideas to the club” said Graham to the Glenmore Gazette.
“I won’t be part of the GPFC committee in 2020, as I have served for a number of years and I want give the new President Chris, and the committee the opportunity to take their own direction. I will still be part of the club and involved in the coaching committee side of things as well as coaching the Under 12 Girls Division 1 team” he continued.
The biggest highlight for Graham under his tenure as President has been the move for the club from Ched Towns Reserve and Blue Hills Oval to Mulgoa Rise, now known as “The Nest”. “This has been a major factor in the club’s success in developing its cultural identity” he said. The club’s winning culture has seen the Under 12 Boys and Under 18 Mens teams victorious at State level as well as the support and development of female football, which has seen numbers grow by over 30% in the last two years.
Graham has also been a finalist for the WSW Chairman’s Award and received the Nepean Football Associations Distinguished Service Award. “The awards were humbling, and I think they recognise not just my efforts, but the committee’s work over the last 5 years. GPFC could not have achieved what it has done without such a fantastic and supportive group of volunteers” he reflected.
“I think GPFC will continue to grow and become more successful. They are in a strong position, both on and off the field. The committee is a great mixture of experienced and new members and they will ensure the club remains a big part of the community” he ended.
