One of North Ringwood’s Own Runs for Council


One of the North Ringwood Football Club community is standing for council election in the Yarrunga ward.

Andrew Schafer is a sponsor of the club, as well playing in 2 premierships with the Veterans side in 2016/2017. Andrew’s son also plays for the North Ringwood Saints in the under 17’s.

Andrew is passionate about the local community and the role sporting clubs play.

If elected, Andrew has committed to continue the amazing upgrades at Quambee with major renovations to the Quambee Pavillion, which will include upgrading the clubrooms as well as another set of changerooms to accommodate our growing woman’s competition.

2020 – What a Year!

Hi Sainters

To say it’s been a different year so far is an understatement.

When COVID-19 hit earlier in the year, I don’t believe anyone understood the impact it would have on everyone. Face masks, face shields, hand sanitizer, social distancing, curfew, 5km limit, 1 person limit shopping, 2hrs exercise, working from home, no local sports, no pubs, cafes or restaurants open are all words that we are familiar with.

The North Ringwood Football Club is a community club. We have a wonderful family, made up of  passionate volunteers, supporters, sponsors, life members, players and a committee that is committed to strive for the best for our club.

Not to mention the new ground, changerooms and lights which will come into play in 2021. Even though our clubrooms aren’t massive, when packed, there is no better atmosphere anywhere.

The reason for this post, is it’s been a taxing year so far for all. Not playing football has impacted a lot of people, from players to supporters and everyone in betweenEven through we haven’t played this year, which was confirmed earlier in the year, the generosity of some of our sponsors and supporters have been nothing short of amazing.

As a football club, we have never asked for anything in 2020, as we understand people and businesses are doing it tough, and it wouldn’t be fair to ask for money at this time. We have had people pay their sponsorships, Sainters Club, memberships and general donations knowing that season 2020 would not go ahead. They paid regardless.

These people will be recognised later in the year.

This money has allowed us to clear outstanding debts and puts us in a fantastic position moving forward for 2021 and beyond, We are extremely bullish with our men’s and woman’s list heading into 2021,  along with the crop of under 19’s coming through. The vets will be back stronger than ever too.

Thankyou to everyone in the North Ringwood Football Club community for your ongoing support.

Jack Heathcote to Quambee for 2021

Hi Sainters
Following up from the complete list signings a few day’s ago, we are pleased to announce a new signing today.
We welcome Jack Heathcote to Quambee for 2021.
Jack played his whole junior career at Torquay until under 16’s , then he moved into the Geelong Falcons program.
Playing two years for the Falcons, Jack decided to have a year off football to concentrate on work.
Returning to Torquay for the 2018 and 2019 years, Jack played a pivotal part in Torquay’s 2019 year, where they just lost the grandfinal to Barwon Heads.
Kicking 3 goals in the losing Grandfinal and 41 for the year, Jack cemented himself as one of the premier forwards in the Bellarine league.
A 22 year old, 192cm tall forward, who has the ability to play anywhere on the ground, with marking and kicking being his best attributes.
With only moving down recently to Mont Albert, we welcome Jack to the Saints.
Go Saints!
