Practice Match this Saturday

All welcome to come down to the Greenwich for our first hit out for the year. We will be playing Malvern & U 18 Vic side from 11 am. Come down and have a run.


Numbers have been down so far going on previous few seasons. It is important that players indicate their intentions to State League coach Damien Orr for 2017. The club needs accurate numbers so we know how many Senior teams to nominate for the season.

Also very important that players start to get involved for a smooth start to the season. Come down to training and front this Sat for practice matches vs Malvern & U 18 Vic sides starting 11 am at the Greenwich.


Great numbers at training so far. 35 U 11s at present - can only be good for the future of the club. May need another dedicated coach.

It is fantastic to see a number of "old" Willy names (Spicer, Inglis, Wilkinson) returning with the next generation of Williamstown players starting up.


The club has bulk purchased some Junior playing gear (helmets, gloves, sticks) to onsell at cost to Junior players. If interested contact Darren Gibson (Junior Coordinator) 0414373907.

Junior Recruitment & Development

Two years ago the club created this position to assist in the recruitment of players to the club. This position is funded by Club Sponsorship including the "100" Club. A major role of this position is to liase with the local schools and support the schools in running clinics and coaching on Carnival Days. Damien Orr orginally held this position until he recently secured a similar, but larger role, with Lacrosse Australia. We thank Damien for his efforts and wish him the best in this expanded role. One of Damien's main helpers, Sean Clarke, has answered the call to take up this position for the club. We wish Sean every success and hopefully players will assist him in the role.

What happened last year?

Access the Club's 2016 Annual Report to see a summary of the club's performance last year.

Fearon Update

The turf is down, the roller and mower getting a work out, the sprinkers running hot, along with the weather. All good for the establishment of the new surface. Last word from council is that they are still targeting mid May. Let's hope all goes well so we can return home where we belong.

International Player

Following the success of last years' program with our two US players, the committee has negotiated for a colleague & friend of Dan & Paul's to play and coach with us this year. We are asking if anyone can provide accommodation. There will be some reimburesment from the club to assist. Contact Damien Orr or Wayne Butson if you can help or want further details.

100 Club

This sponsorship opportuntiy is now in it's third year allowing social members to contrtibute financially to the club. Funds received were used to provide equipment for junior development and new comers to the club. Details of this years' sponsorship are being finalised and will be advertised soon. If you are interested you can either contact Troy Butson ( or EFT $100 into the club's account by referencing 100 club and your name.
