The 2017 Shortlist

Luke HallRachael LoughnanJames BernardKen Kanagalingham

Luke has made a tremendous impact in his first year on the committee. As well as taking on the role of Colts coach, Luke has coordinated most of the events held during the year.

He also took up numerous other roles behind the scenes such as registrations.

The womens vice-president, and womens go to person has done a phenomenal job - especially given she was ruled out of playing this year due to injury.

Not only has Rachael fielded almost every single question asked by the womens teams this year, she ran the coaching panels for the womens teams - and in perhaps her finest role, purchased all the beer for the canteen at low low staff discount prices. 

Like most almost Greeks, James has never encountered an event that he couldn't over cater for. And a good thing to - as the James led canteen has been exceptional this year.

But wait - there's more. James also coordinated all the shorts and socks purchases, as well as drove the social media presence of the club.

The long term treasurer of the club, Ken again has worked diligently behind the scenes making sure the numbers add up. And once again, early indications are that we remain in the black.

Plus he co-ruled over this years mens 3rds team, helping them to a runners-up medal.

2017 Mens Saturday coaches/preseason announced

Pre-season training for the Men's seniors and reserves starts Thursday 5th January at 7pm @ Monash University, Clayton campus.

The session will be run by a returning MUSC favourite Brian Vasey who has been appointed senior mens coach for 2017.

We are also pleased to announce that we've also finalised the remainder of his men's senior coaching staff.

Brian will be joined by his newly promoted assistant coach Thomas Munro (Tom). After winning the reserve championship last season, Tom is looking forward to a new challenge and hoping his influence will be the difference in getting our senior team promoted in 2017.

Replacing Tom as the Men's reserve team coach is Eddie Bago. Eddie joins MUSC from Parkmore SC where he was the caretaker senior coach. Not only does Eddie bring with him a wealth of practical experience, he is also finalising his AFC C licence giving him the theoretical foundations to push the championship winning reserve side even further.

Last but definitely not least, we are happy to announce that Daimon Basile-Goto will be continuing as the club's goalkeeper coach for 2017 and is happy to be working along side the new men's coaching setup.
