Dear Members and Supporters,

It may be the off-season but there is plenty going on at Brunswick NOBSPC and Brunswick Renegades as we all gear up for the VAFA 2017 season. Read on for all the updates and notice of the Club’s AGM to be held on 28 November.

Brunswick Renegades Join the VAFA!

Yes, that wasn’t a mistake in the opening sentence, the Renegades are joining the inaugural VAFA Women’s competition after the VWFL was disbanded last week. We welcome them to the Amateurs and look forward to the Renegades adding to the Club’s rich history in Australia’s premier community football league.

The Renegades are also growing to two teams next year and are now recruiting new players. Pre-season training has commenced on Wednesdays at Clifton Park West at 6.30pm and the turn-out last week was tremendous.

The wonderful opportunity to coach the Renegades (firsts and seconds) in 2017 still exists and expressions of interest should be sent to

It is opportune to also announce that Leonie Kroehnert is the new Sponsorship Manager of the whole of the Club and has already kicked things off by securing the Victoria Hotel in Victoria Street as our pub sponsor. If you are interested in sponsoring the Club in 2017 don’t hesitate to contact Leonie at

Brunswick NOBSPC Coaching Appointments and Season Launch

The NOBSPC coaching panel has been finalised with Michael Giansiracusa and Sam Bishop coming on board as assistants to Luke Mahoney. Last season’s senior assistant Paul Greenham will wind back his commitments to match-day only, when he will join Matt Roberts again. Dene Rodger returns as fitness coach.

This Wednesday at Gillon Oval we are holding a “2017 Season Launch” starting at 6.30pm when we will be introducing our new assistant coaches and welcoming new recruits. All players encouraged to bring a mate to join us for a BBQ and a drink as the Club’s plans for pre-season and the season ahead will be outlined.

Pre-season training starts at Clifton Park West on 21 November at 6.30pm and in the lead up to Christmas will be held on Mondays and Thursdays.
