Welcome back to Dee News, presented by Bendigo Bank East Malvern, your weekly De La news bulletin. Welcome also to Season 2017, which despite the weekend’s somewhat mixed results across our eight teams, is poised to be a very exciting year indeed for the club.  

Proceedings kicked off last Thursday with over 100 people in the Bert Healy Pavilion for our Jumper Presentation Evening (see above). It certainly set the tone for the year and we welcome all supporters to the club each Thursday night to catch up with friends, have a fantastic bite to eat for dinner thanks to our marvellous kitchen crew, watch training, and enjoy the many and varied (yet entertaining) approaches from our various coaches in announcing the weekend’s teams!

Friday saw 290 guests descend on the RACV Club in the city for our now famous Season Launch, the biggest launch in Amateur Footy. A great day was had by all, as we heard from former AFL players Brad Hardie and Peter Schwab, comedian Anthony ‘Lehmo’ Lehmann, new Dees Jason Tutt and Matt ‘Cuddles’ Cullinan, our Women’s Team Manager Michelle Gotch and newly announced Women's Team captain Carle Rooks.  

Has there ever been more cause for excitement around our great club? We are fielding eight teams this year, with a fantastic cross-section of our community represented, from our Seniors and Reserves, to our Warriors (Thirds), Under 19 Blue and Gold sides, our Colts side, our evergreen Over-35 De La Dinosaurs, and of course, our Women’s Team.


Led by coach John McDonough and Team Manager Michelle Gotch, the ‘Guns’ as they are affectionately known were officially sworn in last Thursday night at our Jumper Presentation Evening (above).

A total of 31 players thus far have registered, and whilst many are playing for the first time, the entire side is having a ball and fun is most definitely the focus. If any girls aged 16 or over within your circle of friends or family would like to join the Guns, please register HERE.
