WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL SITE OF THE MOONEE VALLEY FOOTBALL CLUB
MOONEE VALLEY HELP IN THE BATTLE AGAINST CANCER
Moonee Valley Football Club will dedicate its match on Saturday to Challenge.
Lukas (in picture) was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, a type of cancer, in April last year after
he was regularly vomiting and getting weaker.
The Kensington toddler has undergone brain surgery at the Royal Children's Hospital that
removed most of the tumour and regular chemotherapy.
Lukas' mother said the only cure was radiotherapy but because of his age they were keeping
the remaining tumour at bay until he was strong enough for treatment, or it grew.
The match this Saturday 18 May is dedicated to young cancer sufferers like Lukas and there
will be a number of fundraising activities taking place between 1-5pm at Ormond Park.
A number of the Senior Players are also donating their match payments to the cause.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW PRESIDENT
The club held its Annual General Meeting in late October and are pleased to announce that all executive positions have been filled with a number of new faces being welcomed onto the committee for season 2012.
Congratulation to Stephen Radford on being appointed Club President for 2013 and congratulations to Dean Lawson on his appointment as Vice President. Both Stephen and Dean bring a wealth of knowledge to the positions and the Club gives their full support and wish you every success in the roles.
We would like to thank Alex Tomsic for his hard work as President over the past few years. Alex has done a tremendous job and hands over the club in a strong position as it approaches its 80th year Anniversary.
CHARLIE DENARO RE-APPOINTED FOR 2013
Moonee Valley Football Club would like to announce the re-appointment of senior coach Charlie Denaro for season 2013.
Denaro will return for a third season at the helm, after taking Moonee Valley to within a kick of the premiership last season, losing the grand final to East Keilor.
The club has improved considerably since his arrival and we had no hesitation in renewing his services. In his short time with us, he has put into place many processes both on and off the field to ensure Moonee Valley will once again become a strong club within the EDFL.
Also returning to the club is former Williamstown and Coburg VFL player Michael Tanner. Moonee Valley were able to withstand countless clubs advances for Michaels services and in the end secure him for 2013/14 as playing assistant coach.
Everyone around the club is looking forward to Tanners return to the Valley and we wish him, Charlie and all the boys all the best in the clubs 80th year anniversary in 2013.
