WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL SITE OF THE MOONEE VALLEY FOOTBALL CLUB
OUR THOUGHTS ARE WITH THE WYLIE FAMILY
Moonee Valley Football Club is sad to announce the passing of Mark Wylie who died on Monday 14 July 2014. Mark had a long association with the club, over the last decade he was a fixture at junior matches watching his sons Sam, Nick and Daniel play. His wife Louise and he have been stalwarts of the junior club with Louise pioneering a professional approach to our junior training volunteers.
Mark was renowned for his sharp mind, good humour and company. Mark held a number of senior executive positions in various organisations and was an expert in security systems. Earlier Mark had an extensive and successful career with Victoria Police and was the recipient of the Valour Award the highest award for bravery.
We pass on our deepest sympathies to Louise, Sam, Nick and Daniel.
THE SEASON SO FAR...
With 7 rounds to go we have the U18s sitting on top of the ladder with just one loss to their name, this despite the fact that they regularly miss some of their best to the senior side. There has been 6 play at least one game with Tyson Edwards and Taylor Gorry having a big impact in recent weeks at the higher level.
The Reserves are currently in second place by percentage only and are looking very strong, coach Liam Hayes has the guys playing great team footy. A return trip to have a crack at going one better than last years grand final defeat looks well and truly on the cards if they keep it up.
Since round one the Senior team have not lost by more than 20 points and have twice pushed undefeated Roxburgh Park, but unfortunately they haven't been able to get over the line in some of those tight games. They are sitting in sixth at the moment but the return of Nathan Moore to the midfield over the last two weeks and the prospect of regaining some other important players such as ruckman Dom Dean in the coming weeks should see a strong finish to the year. The group are very committed to turning the season around and making a huge push for finals, currently two games off fourth place they are right in the mix for a finals spot.
