Hello all and welcome to GVL Season 2022.

Certainly not long now until we commence the season against the Mooroopna Cats on the 9th of April.  I for one cannot wait to see our players and supporters back at Deakin Reserve.

With a home game against the cats in Round 1 let’s make sure that we get to Deakin in big numbers and not only support our players but also the club.  It would be awesome to see a huge crowd in attendance.

I really like where the club is situated both on and off field at present and I look forward to our season launch in March and the return of Thursday Night Teas with Ang Mang and the team from the Woolshed in early April.  There is plenty happening that’s for sure.

As we head toward Round 1 I have some key info points for you:

* Our newly refurbished website is up and running.  Log onto sheppartonfnc.com.au

* Football registrations can be lodged via the portal on the website.

* Club merchandise can also be purchased from the website.

* Memberships will be on sale from next week and can be purchased from the website.

* Players need to have their own ‘Player Membership’ which is separate to any family membership.

* Season Launch will be on Thursday the 24th of March, 2022 and will be incorporated into TNTs.

Pre season practice matches are as follows:


11th of March.  Shepp Bears V Congupna at Congupna (Extended Senior Squad)

26th of March.  Shepp Bears V Golden Square at Heathcote (Senior and Reserves)


Practice Match – Thursday 17th of March, 2022 Mercy Stadium (All grades)

Our coaches and support staff continue to work hard with our players which will hold us in good stead for this year.  Well done to you all.

I will have more information to come as we get closer.

Kind regards and Go Bears 2022!
