Golden Grove Football Club

The Grove Shopping Centre proudly sponsor the Golden Grove Football Club (GGFC)who are known as the Kookaburras.

2021 continued with Covid-19 challenges but again we have maintained our high standards of development both on and off field. 

As always, we could not survive without our volunteers, members, sponsors & supporters, and our professional, passionate & dedicated management committee.

Congratulations again to the presidents award recipient Scott Smart for his contribution to the club, and Junior Player of the Year Kael Murdoch.

Our hard work off the field has been rewarded by Clubs SA with nominations in various categories and a special mention to Volunteer of the Year nominee Gary Brown who has been volunteering for 25 years & showing no signs of letting up.

On-field results will be left to the Football Directors but off-field we were stoked to hear of the 12m grant to develop Harpers Field that is slowly being turned into reality.  We are working with the council to move to architectural designs and site location for the new building with more info to be provided as we move forward.

Our 25th anniversary was finally celebrated a year late with several functions throughout the year.

We have come a long way since a small group of gentlemen decided that there should be a football club in the Golden Grove area and then made it happen under the driving force of our inaugural president Reg Payne.

The growth we have seen is amazing from 6 junior teams playing at Greenwith Oval with an atco hut & portable lights in 1995 adding 2 senior teams in 1997, to the 39 teams we fielded in 2021.

Congratulations to everyone on a successful season with various player league debuts both men & women, junior & senior association medalists, mens Div 3R & C3 & girls & boys U15 premierships.
