The Grove Shopping Centre proudly sponsor the Golden Grove Football Club (GGFC)who are known as the Kookaburras, they turned 25 in 2020 but with the Covid-19 impact, all the celebrating will now be done in 2021!
In their short history they have a long list of achievements on & off the field evidenced by the quality of their current facilities and their walls of honour proudly displaying our sponsor partners, senior & junior premiership flags and AFL & SANFL success stories.
2020 was the longest shortest season ever, with so many unknowns even up until June as to whether we would even be playing football again. Luckily restrictions eased and what a cracker 2020 turned out to be with the A & B Grades taking out premierships & the D grade just falling short on the day.
They maintained the expected full complement of 39 teams for the season in the reduced format. Several of their junior teams missed out on finals with only the top 2 playing out Grand Finals for most grades but their U12, U15 & U16 boys all made it to Grand Finals & U16 girls competed in the Preliminary Final.
The season also saw these great personal achievements:-
Off field we also achieved great heights around our management of the Covid-19 implications and the input by all the committee and volunteers was second to none.
They are a local grass roots club supporting local community organisations, charities and other projects including community awareness programs.
They contribute to the education of young people based on good sporting values, skill development, team play and healthy participation in football at all levels.
The club prides itself on close relationships with its members and the local community through both Social Media and email communications
