Saints welcome new President Lee Robinson

Hi Sainters,

At last night’s NRFC Annual General Meeting we welcomed our new President Lee Robinson for 2018 and beyond.

Lee, better known to many as Leeroy, came to Saintland some 12 years ago to play Vets footy and has been part of our 3 Premiership-winning teams.

Leeroy takes over from Scott Eade, and thanked Scott for his tireless efforts and enormous contribution to our Club during his 3 years as President and several years prior to that. Scott has been a driving force in our growing strength as an EFL First Division Club.

Other Sainters elected to official positions for 2018:

Vice President: Phil Harris

Vice President: Mick Tudor

Secretary: Neil Sheppard

Treasurer: Peter Stephens

General Committee: Glenn Gordon, Mick Falzon, Jamie Roberts, Mark Jonas, Nathan Payne, Dean Philpots.

We thank the above Saints Officials for “putting their hands up” to help our Club.

If you would like to help out in any way without the commitment of being on the Club Committee, there are plenty of spots available, so please feel free to contact Lee Robinson by email at or phone 0428798786.

Go Saints!!!!!

North Ringwood looking to climb Eastern Football League ladder in 2018

Great news Saints fans. Some early recruiting and the return of two Saints favourites sees Saints Season Eighteen looking towards First Division Finals.

A great bit of early info below replicated from Toby Prime’s Maroondah Leader article.

North Ringwood looking to climb Eastern Football League ladder in 2018

NORTH Ringwood is shaping as one of the big improvers in the Eastern Football League in 2018 after landing a package of recruits from Mitcham.
The Saints’ midfield has been boosted by the additions of Mitcham premiership captain Julian Petracca and brother Rob, who also played in the Tigers’ 2015 Division 3 flag.
It’s hoped small forward Jayden Hoegel will fill the void left by Charlie Haley after transferring to Quambee Reserve from Mitcham, where he has booted 126 goals since playing in Balwyn’s 2013 premiership.

Versatile wingman Mitch Keedle will also return to Division 1 after spending the past two seasons at Walker Park.
“Very rarely will North Ringwood win a recruit based on money because we just don’t compete with some of the others on that basis but often it comes back to relationships,” North Ringwood coach Brett Moyle said.
“The Petracca boys had some really good friendships having been to Whitefriars with a couple of the guys who were in our group, the Whelan brothers in particular.”
Former junior Guy Phelps, premiership player Jason Sharp and Sean Barnard have also returned to North Ringwood.
Phelps has developed as a forward in the past three years at Port Fairy in the Hampden league, while Sharp has spent the past two seasons with Queensland outfit Broadbeach, while Barnard had a stint in the Yarra Valley.
Key defender Kane Keppel has also linked up with North Ringwood, where he played junior football, but will remain on the Northern Blues’ VFL list next year.

Moyle predicted the Saints could contend for their first finals berth since the 2014 Division 2 premiership.
“I guess the idea of trying to be a top-five side and play Division 1 finals with this group … the core of the group started in Division 3,” Moyle said

“Jack Whelan, Jayden vanUnen, the Sharp brothers, Heath Decker, Daniel Wood, Sam Whelan, all these boys have started in Division 3 and have dragged the place up.
“I’d just love to see those guys get the opportunity to play some Division 1 finals because a lot of them deserve to do that.”

2018 Senior Coaching Appointments


Brett Moyle.

Following on from the earlier announcement of  Brett Moyle’s appointment as senior coach for 2018, the North Ringwood Football Club has pleasure in announcing the reappointment of Paul O’Callaghan as coach of our reserves.

Paul (O.C) O’Callaghan

Paul has been with us for 3 years and has become a well loved and respected member of our coaching staff.

He carries with him a wealth of football knowledge to every game, and having started off “behind the 8 ball” player numbers wise, his hard work has started to pay dividends by winning 5 games this year and finishing 8th on the ladder. Paul is pumped with the opportunity to continue building his team. We wish him every success as he leads our reserves into a successful season.

Matt Povey

We would also like to announce the appointment of Matt Povey as coach for the U19s for Season 2018. Matt has been involved with our juniors and vets for many years and also brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience from both Eastern Ranges and Box Hill Hawks.

Matt is rapt with the opportunity to build on how Ryan Cullen has blended a young team into a competitive group of young men. We wish Matt and the U19s all the best for a successful season also.

Can’t wait for Saints Season Eighteen.

Go Saints!!!
