THE Kyneton Football-Netball Club will tomorrow night launch into a new era, while also recognising its history at its major function for the year.
The Tigers – who are without a senior team in the Bendigo Football League this year – will hold their Relaunch Night at Sacred Heart College.
“It’s going to be a really big night for the club... we’ve got over 350 people coming and it’s our major fundraiser moving forward,” Kyneton president Rob Waters said today.
“We hope it’s the start of the new Kyneton.”
While the night is being billed as a relaunch for the club, it will also pay respect to its past.
“We’ll be honouring four people who have made significant contributions to the footy club over the journey,” Waters said.
“Some of those we’re honouring – who I can’t say publicly yet – have been involved with the club for more than 30 years.
“The symbolism of that is we want to honour our past, but we’ll also have some of our juniors there forming a guard of honour as the guests arrive, and they symbolise the future of the club.
“We want to be able to connect the past with the future.”
The guests tomorrow night will include triple Brownlow medallist Ian Stewart, while new senior coach Mark Adamson will outline his vision for the club moving forward.
“Mark has been fantastic since taking on the role,” Waters said.
“He’s making some good progress with prospective recruits and there’s going to be some good announcements to come.
“The early indications we’ve been getting have been positive, but at the moment with a lot of players still playing and getting ready for finals, we’ve got to be patient.”
The Tigers are at home at the Kyneton Showgrounds against Golden Square in round 18 tomorrow.
