Lights Repaired at Walker Reserve – Thank You

Over the recent years, a number of the flood light globes have not been working. No one complained, but we all knew it was getting worse for our players & coaches. To fix this was sure to be an expensive exercise, but in true Devils spirit, great people didn’t hesitate to help out.

With awesome sponsors chipping in, and some grouse fellas freely giving their skills and time, the training lights are now fixed and working a treat ! 

Our sincere thanks to the following great Devils people:

*Dave “Patch “ Edgcumbe from Prime electrical for donating the globes and materials.

*Teddy from TC Hire for donating the use of the boom lift.

*Current senior players Jarryd and Dylan Smith from Illumelec for installing everything.

*Luke McMillan and Bill Karagioros from the WSJFC for all their help with testing and diagnosing the problems.

We are extremely lucky to have awesome people willing to help out local sporting clubs  – especially at the Devils.

Greg Phillips – 2022

It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of one of our great community leaders in Greg Phillips. After a horrible battle with illness, the Phillips family lost Greg Saturday morning (March 12th).

Greg and his wife Lyn were significant contributors to our community footy club over many years and together helped make it a friendly place for all to enjoy.

Greg’s son Chris (Cruizer) was a long-time champion player for the Devils and was a member of multiple Senior Premiership teams for the club. Greg was a very keen supporter of the Devils for many years and continued to be a valuable member of the club long after Chris had retired from the game.

Greg Phillips

The Devils are forever grateful to Greg for also taking on the President’s role in a very challenging time for the club from 2009 to 2011. His commitment to keeping our community footy club open for business was vital for all the players of the time, but also meant the Devils could recover for future players to enjoy.

Greg Phillips – President 2009 – 2011

Greg understood the business needs of our footy club and gave his skills and time freely whilst leading its culture to be a friendly club to be a part of.

We will miss seeing Greg’s smiling face at the games in his Devils Jacket, and we send our condolences to his wife Lyn, and their children Chris & Elissa.
