WELCOME TO SEASON 2017
Yes after a long hot summer of Cricket which resulted 4 premiership wins for the club, Football is back for all Junior and Senior Divisions at Aberfeldie participating in the local Essendon District Football League competitions! Our Senior Pre-season training campaign began back in November, 2016 and continued into the New Year. We had three great hit-outs against Vermont, Albury and West Preston Lakeside football clubs which we believe has given our players sufficient match practice to now delve into the season proper.
With the movement of several past key position players at Abers, it has been a challenging period for the club trying to recruit the right people and players to our great club. We continue to have particular focus on youth development and giving opportunities to younger players as evidenced by some great performances in the practice matches from some of our Under 19.5 players. In addition to this the senior coach is confident in the next wave of talent at his disposal. We are very excited and pleased with our final list for the season; the players we have contracted are very keen and eager to play for Aberfeldie Football Club and to put themselves up against the best the competition can offer.
We encourage all members and supporters to get behind the club and the players for this year's campaign and join together in this important passage in time. We look forward to the challenge and of seeing you all there at our games!

In 2015 we were pleased to announce that we created our own smartphone application through the Team App program! This is primarily targeted at players and officials of the senior football section who will be put into access groups for improved communication purposes but standard members are allowed to sign up to become basic supporters and to receive news and information from in and the club. At this point event notifcations and other news commence the week of Round 1 and continue for the duration of the season.
If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod or Android equivalent (Samsung, HTC, Sony etc.) you can go to the App Store or Google Play and download the application to your phone. Once you have done that you must sign up to the program which is 100% free. Then, search for ABERFELDIE FOOTBALL and request access.
