Welcome John Mangos – Senior Mens Coach 2019

The Keilor Park Football Club is thrilled to announce that John Mangos has been appointed our Senior Men’s Coach for Season 2019.

John is well known throughout the EDFL Community and has a wealth of coaching knowledge and experience behind him having coached Men’s, Women’s and Junior Teams across the Moonee Valley, Maribrynong Park and Pascoe Vale Football Clubs.

John with the club, are excited and enthusiastic to implement the Senior Men’s program back in with our thriving Junior program and successful Women’s program that is entering its second year. His passion for football and vision for the club, centers on building and developing a list of footballers, who want to buy into improving the culture and being part of a fun and positive environment.

Keilor Park Football Club has always focused on being a family club, which is represented by our Junior sides having made significant improvement over the past 5 years. We feel that we have several talented Junior players that will be eligible to play Seniors now and in the coming years and along with John’s vision, there is a major emphasis on injecting more Development and Resources into our U19 and U17’s programs as we are under no illusion that is where our future lies.

John will be working closely with our Development Manager Matt Wilson and they will be joining forces to run our Preseason program for the U17, U19 and Senior Men’s beginning Wed 14th Nov @ 6:00pm @KPFC. Full details of Preseason will be released soon.

This is a great opportunity to play for a club that is rebuilding from the bottom up, so if you are up for a challenge and feel that KPFC may be the place for you, then #beadevil in 2019 and call or text John directly on 0433 822 320.

Electronic scoreboard installation at Recreation Reserve, Stadium Drive, Keilor Park – For the benefit of football|cricket club participants, spectators, etc

We would like to install an electronic scoreboard to replace our old and somewhat unsafe manual one. The project is pretty straightforward, has numerous community benefits and has been implemented by many other local clubs. An electronic scoreboard is basically a large video screen and aside from being able to display the scores and other important match information, it also is able to display videos, replays, live television, logos and sponsorship displays.

The electronic scoreboard will benefit all the thousands of local users of our oval (football and cricket players, official, volunteers and spectators). Aside from the enhanced match day experience for all the oval attendees, it will save the club volunteers a significant amount of time to run it on match day, be safer, save in maintenance as well as being able to be significant revenue generator from sponsorship dollars. Revenue will then be able to be invested back into our non for profit football and cricket clubs to provide further community value and increase participation in active sport.
