CDFC Past Players & Officials form “The Dog Pack”

Last Updated:

The impact of the Corona virus has placed Central District Football Club in a precarious financial situation. Massively reduced income due to the forced closure of the Licenced Club, decreased membership and revenue associated with suspended match days has resulted in limited cash reserves to service its debt and financial commitments.

In great support of the Club a group of Central District Football Club Past Players & Officials have rallied together to create the “The Dog Pack”.

The thought process behind the creation of “The Dog Pack” is that given that Past Players and Officials have benefited from the association with the Club through employment opportunities, long life friendships gained and other opportunities, now is the time to give back.

The goal of the Dog Pack and it’s founding members is to not only ensure the survival of the Central District Football Club but to also put in place a mechanism that assures the Clubs long term financial success.

The Dog Pack has already received tremendous support in a short space of time which is extremely encouraging.

Please join fellow Past Players – John Platten, Chris & James Gowans, Daniel Healy, Brendan Maguire, Rob Fraser, Jeff Brown, Simon Luhrs, Roger Girdham, Dave Buckley, Richard Cousins, Geoff Robertson, Darren (Boof) Lehmann and Pat Schwerdt by contributing to The Dog Pack.
