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.
