Meet the currently members of our club committee.
Andrew has had 2 stints on the Cats Committee – firstly for 3 years under Brian Collins as Chair and now as the current president. Andrew has two sons who play football and you would think after 22 years in Australia that he understood the rules! Andrew is passionate about the local community and the importance that sporting clubs play in Macedon. He loves the tag line – “Our Community, Our Club”.
Vice President & Treasurer
Yasna Blandin de Chalain
Jo Gooch continues her enthusiasm and valued support of the Macedon Football Netball club in 2021 as Football Operations Manager. Jo is a perfect fit for this role with her approachable nature and knowledge of all things Football. She is a respected member of our club.
Jo has been a dedicated club and committee member for 5 years. All of those years were dedicated to Netball Operations Management. She was also previously a netball player herself.
Strong embedded passions and values are Jo’s strengths and being a part of a caring, community club provides an opportunity to express those.
Organising the club social calendar and events is another one of Jo’s strengths. Many a fun club function and gathering has been celebrated using Jo’s organisational and time management skills.
On a personal note, Jo has 2 adult children. When she’s not organising club matters, Jo can be found on her sheep and cattle farm in Piper’s Creek.
Paid employment for Jo is at the Ray M. Begg Aged Care facility in Kyneton.
The Tigers are her AFL team and the Vixens her Netball Team. Needless to say, Jo is very excited about the strength of the teams she follows.
Jo is focused on developing a strong foundation and sustainability for our club for now and well into the future. She values what sport can offer a community through healthy connections and relationship building.
Tom has followed in his father Craig’s footsteps taking over his position on the Macedon Cats committee. Tom, started in Under 10’s in 2005 with the Cats and is a great club man. Tom sees Macedon as a great club and a really good environment for those who want to play football or netball, or help out. The Hilderbrand family are avid supporters and great documenters of matches with notes and videos taken as records of each match. Tom fulfils the role as Facilities Manager and efficiently gets on with any job that is thrown at him.
Steph joins the committee this year as the Events & Social Media Manager. When not taking care of all things social, you’ll see her either slogging it out on the netball court or hearing her cheer on the Cats teams (both Footy and Netball) from the sidelines.
