The Wantirna South Football Club was formed in 1952…it has a rich history of persistence and camaraderie, with many past players still great friends. The club has had a very enjoyable era the past 20 years on the field, whilst maintaining its community connection and core values. However, it is today and this season that matters to our players, and they want their own achievements to grab – And that’s what the club is focused on.
We field four playing groups: Seniors, Development Team , U19’s and Veterans. The Club’s Committee, Players and Members are a football loving community who are pleased to be right in the heart of the Knox area.
The Wantirna South Football Club prides itself on bringing the community together for football games and to connect them with our Business Partners, who are great supporters of local footy.
It is our belief that a player who joins the Club will have the opportunity to develop as a player on the field, and to develop as an individual off the field. We are a not for profit club who reward players for excellence, but also provide opportunities for people to get involved in a real live, operating football club. Our players can enjoy being part of the club from Under 19’s through to Veterans (over 35’s). There are opportunities for players to develop into leadership roles too.
Local football has all the elements Australians love about the game – Club rivalry is alive and well and you are very close to the action. Many of our players grew up in the area and played for the Wantirna South Junior FC – The Devils, and other junior clubs in the area. We always intend to develop our players to be the best they can be, and to enjoy themselves playing footy and being part of the club.
The club has re-appointed Matt Clark as the Senior Coach for 2017 for his 7th season. Our prospects for the 2017 season are exciting and we would love you to be part of it.
Get down to the Local footy – It is a great day for everyone, including the kids!
