Roy girls off to National Championships

The club is extremely proud to announce that two of our Roy Girls are off to the School Sport National Championships in Geelong from the 18th to 25th July, 2015. Nell Morris-Dalton (FJFC U15 Girls) has been selected to represent the AFL Victoria Under 16 Development Team in the national competition, whilst Maddy Guerin (FJFC Youth Girls) has been selected in the School Sports Victoria team.
The National Schoolboy Championships were inaugurated in Melbourne in 1923. In 2008 it was renamed ‘The School Sport Australia Australian Football Championships’. In 2009 the first 16 years and under Girls Invitational competition was played between Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia. 2011 saw the Inaugural School Sport Australia Girls 16 years and under Championship held with five member bodies represented and an invitational team from AFL NSW/ACT. The Girls Championship was won by Victoria who also won in 2014.
Good luck to Nell and Maddy for the championships and well done on a fantastic achievement.

Joe Johnson Indigenous Round Medals

The Indigenous Round aligns with the focus on National Reconciliation and is the fourth year of our club awarding Indigenous Round Medals to players from each team. This year we are proud to name the Indigenous Round Medals after the famous and first Fitzroy Indigenous player, Joe Johnson.

The Fitzroy club has a very strong and proud association with Indigenous football and this exciting club event provides a wonderful opportunity to celebrate, show respect, give acknowledgement, and recognize and share knowledge of our past. The medals will be inscribed with five qualities deemed to represent qualities of Indigenous Australians and ones we hope all players will strive to emulate and attain. Those qualities are: 

ENDURANCE            TENACITY          COURAGE            LOYALTY         PRIDE

The Fitzroy club has a strong and deep link with Indigenous players that we should recognize, commemorate and, promote for the future of the club. 

The "...first known Aborigine to play AFL football..." played for Fitzroy (Joe Johnson). The first Indigenous Victorian State representative was also a young Fitzroy man who would go on to be a prominent figure in securing Indigenous rights and became the Governor of South Australia, the Rev. Doug Nichols.

There have been 13 Indigenous players for Fitzroy in the club’s history. 

We have strong connections and through this medal we hope to create connections for our players linking past generations with today’s players to the future.

Without Knowledge there can be no Understanding and without Understanding there can be no Reconciliation.

Amazing Maddy makes it (x2)

Football at Fitzroy has achieved another first, with Maddy Guerin being selected in the U18s Vic Metro and U16’s State squads. By any standard this is a fantastic achievement. Maddy is this week in Mandurah, Western Australia playing in the Australian Youth Girls Championship. Today they beat VIC Country 53 to 18, a great start to their campaign. You can follow the action at http://www.aflcommunityclub.com.au/index.php?id=748.

Maddy played her first season of football last year with the Roys in Gray’s Under 15’s. In that year she managed to make the YJFL U16s representative team as well as poll enough votes in the home and away rounds to be the runner up in the YJFL U15’s best and fairest. She is now playing with the FJFC Youth Girls where her dash and fearless attack on the ball has been greatly appreciated by the team. This year she has trained with the Calder Cannons development squad which has led her to being selected in the Metro and State sides.

Whilst Maddy has plenty of skills and ability it is her attitude to hard work that is one of her best attributes. Maddy takes on her challenges in her considerable stride with confidence, balance and enjoyment – well done Maddy!

The Under 16 State Championships will be played in Geelong between the 18th and 20th of July, so if you can, get down and support her.
