2015 will be in my tenth year on the Werribee Football Club Board. Although a long time resident of Werribee, I now reside in Essendon. I am a Civil Engineer and Commercial Builder and have worked in the civil construction industry for 40 years. My work over this period has been project / director management roles across Australia, New Zealand and Middle East.
From the outset my role on the Board, has been capital works development at Chirnside Park. Over this period , in excess of $1.5 million has been invested improving ground facilities with the valued assistance of Wyndham City. Patron shelters, seating, terracing, score board as well as player facilities have brought the Werribee Football Club to some parity within the VFL. While player facilities are critical, so is supporter comfort and we have a way to go.
With the ever changing VFL competition further improvements need to be undertaken by the Club. Supported by Wyndham City and AFL Victoria, much work has gone into the concept of a significant Chirnside Park upgrade. Before the first sod is turned, many hours will be spent by the Board to work through the process of consultation, financing, design and importantly, the approvals processes.
