Annual Report 2015

What a year for the Concord Giants in Season 2015!

On field we had three teams in the finals with our boys in the U17s coming home with a premiership trophy. Our U17s played with Drummoyne Power and while they may have been wearing different jerseys, underneath they are true GIANTS!

Our U14/1 team, playing in our Youth Club Alliance, the Canada Bay Cannons, had a magnificent season, finishing second in the competition. Our U11 also had a great season and finals campaign… but of course it is not just about finals. AFL is about having FUN and we congratulate all our teams for making it such a great year!

Off field, the Club is moving forward with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers. So enjoy the 2015 Annual Report and Year Book!

Children and politicians at St Lukes Funding Announcement

St Lukes Oval Update

Funding boost for St Lukes AFL Precinct

9 September 2016

The State Government has kicked in another $200,000 to the new junior AFL Precinct at St Lukes Oval, Concord.

The funding boost – announced by Sports Minister Stuart Ayres and the Member for Drummoyne John Sidoti MP – brings the current commitment for the redevelopment to $1 million and is recognition of the huge growth of AFL across NSW.

The new facilities, which will be ready for play in Season 2017, will be the home ground of the Concord Giants and will be jointly shared with our Youth Club, the Canada Bay Cannons and Drummoyne Power.

The initial federal Government funding allocation of $500,000 was announced in June by the Member for Reid, Hon Craig Laundy MP. The AFL NSW/ACT will provide an additional six figure allocation towards the upgrade, with further funding from the City of Canada Bay and the three junior footy clubs.

St Lukes will be the new home ground for the Concord Giants from April next year.

Drummoyne Power and the Canada Bay Cannons will continue to use Drummoyne Oval as a home ground. They will use the new facilities as additional training space and on game days.

Stage One of the project, due to be completed for the start of Season 2017, includes new light towers, a new video scoreboard, an upgrade to the existing amenity block and minor upgrades to the oval itself.

Stage Two, to be completed over a three to four-year time frame, will include further upgrades to the amenities block to include a clubhouse, viewing deck, storage and change rooms, and a major upgrade to the oval, including synthetic (all weather) turf. The total cost of the project is expected to about $3 million.

Concord Giants President-elect Natalie Baini was at the announcement of the new funding allocation.

Natalie said the new facilities would provide an enormous boost for the Concord Giants, which has outgrown its current Goddard Park headquarters.

“The availability of green space is a major factor, not just for AFL, but for all junior sporting clubs. This new facility will be capable of hosting weekend games and mid-week training session for our Auskickers, right through to our youth teams.

“It is an exciting time for AFL in NSW right now, and we’re glad to be a part of it,” Natalie said.
