About this opportunity
From the President
Estates Football Club was established in 1932 and has occupied a range of different training and playing venues including National Park, Reid Park, Townsville State High School and presently; Victoria Park, South Townsville.
With rich tradition behind us, Estates looks forward to a bright future with underlying principles, values and actions as outlined in this plan. We believe that a path forward has emerged for existing and new committee members to drive over the next few years.
The achievements of previous committee members have laid solid foundations for where we are today and by committing to and implementing our new strategic plan, we will ensure continual growth and success even in the face of great challenge.
Estates is in safe hands and will continue to not only survive but thrive and be a prominent community focused organisation for many years to come.
