Season Launch Party - Friday 28 March
The 2014 season is almost upon us!
What better way to celebrate, and to welcome the new players into the team than by having our traditional season launch party!
We have many new players joining the mens team, and we have the new womens team! So what better way to get to know your new team mates than by having a few (responsible) drinks with them!
It will be at our sponsor, The Victoria Hotel on Victoria Street, Brunswick (by Brunswick train station). Bring along partners, friends etc as we look to kick off the 2014 season in style!
We encourage everyone to get along and share a drink with your team mates!

He's Big, He's Dave, His name is Big Dave!
Old Hill Wanderer original, and Club legend 'Big Dave' is set to leave Australia in April, and head back to England with his young family.
Big Dave's name will forever be in the history books of Old Hill, being part of the 2010 VicSoccer Division 1 East Championship winning team. Dave's appearances have been more sporadic in recent years, as he has directed his attention to his young family, but that hasn't stopped him stepping in when we have needed players, for which we are always grateful.
To honour Big Dave, we are holding a testimonial match on the evening of Tuesday 1 April which will be:
Old Hill Wanderers 2009-2010 'Championship' XI vs Old Hill Wanderers Select XI
We encourage all players and fans to come along, support the teams and join us for a drink afterwards to farewell Big Dave!

This months Player Profile goes to Lloyd White.
What can be said about Lloyd that hasn't already been said. He is an Old Hill 'original'; he was there when it all began and is still here now!
Lloyd can often be found displaying his superior intellect (he has a PhD you know) and sharp wit. However, Lloyd is known more fondly for his resemblance to the Muppet, Beaker and for his highly sophisticated fashion sense.
For those of us who have known Lloyd since the start, we have had many opportunities to cast eyes on his very impressive, and very dangerous weapon, which he can often be found fondling; much like the photo, or grazing along carpets attempting to 'do a Klinsmann'!
