AGM Wrap-up and New Club Name

On Monday 7th November, The Westside FC Annual General Meeting was held at the clubhouse.

Shane Downey has stepped down as club President, mostly to free up time to further his studies. His contribution and dedication to Westside over the past five years has been invaluable and cannot be underestimated. We all wish Shane great success in achieving his academic goals! But we are not losing him completely; Shane will remain on the Management Committee in the position of Vice President. Shane’s dedication has been acknowledged with a Westside FC Life Membership. Huge congratulations and thanks to Shane.

New Management Committee

President: Gary Kelk
Vice President: Shane Downey
Treasurer: Michael Eaton

The position of Secretary remains open at this stage. We are actively looking for someone to fill this important role, so if you’re interested please contact Gary for more information, by email to

Former Treasurer and Life Member, Peter Bromley, will be staying on in the role of Senior’s Program Manager.

Club Name

After much deliberation it was decided the club’s new name will be Westside Grovely FC. This identifies our location as well as retaining our heritage and identification. We will be modifying the club logo accordingly.


On behalf of the new Committee I’d like to extend our appreciation and thanks to the outgoing committee members including Claire Sutcliffe and Peter Bromley for their efforts over the past few seasons. Huge thanks also to the Program Managers, volunteers and all those working in the background who have kept Westside running during the 2016 season. We are looking forward to a fantastic 2017 season!

We do have vacant volunteer positions to fill and will post more information soon. A new website is on the way, so watch this space.
