Junior and Senior Training Suspended Immediately
As most of you will have seen by now Victoria is going into 6 week lock down from 11:59pm on Wednesday 8th July.
The EFNL has issued an immediate suspension of all training at ALL clubs until further notice for public health issues and in line with the new restrictions in place.
We understand that there is going to be so many kids upset by this announcement today, but this is out of the club and leagues control.
Our Junior Mouth guard night has also been cancelled for this coming Friday night.
An update will be provided to all families as soon as we have direction from the league.
We thank you all for your continued support of East Burwood Football Club during these times.
Junior and Senior Committee
His award citation read “For service to Australian rules football and sports administration”
This is truly deserved recognition for more that 40 years of service and volunteer work with a large number of sporting bodies.
Rob served two stints on the committee at the Rams holding the positions of treasurer, vice president and president (2014-2017) at the Rams.
He was also both President and Vice President of the EFNL and is a life member of that organisation.
He has also held positions with the Royal Melbourne Yacht Club, Blackburn South Junior Football Club, North Kew Football Club, Victorian Metropolitan Football League and Sporting Inclusion Australia.
He is currently treasurer at the Donvale Football.
As a testament to his willingness to roll up his sleeves and get the job done, he has on many occasions spent the afternoon in the beer both flipping burgers.
From everyone at the East Burwood Football Club congratulations Rob on your well deserved award.

Help Tim Goldie Get Home To His Children
Dedicated and loving father of three, Tim, has tragically become a paraplegic after contracting a rare staph infection following a medical procedure. A former athlete, Tim has a long road ahead at rehabilitation to try to function independently as a paraplegic.
In order to be discharged from hospital and return to the family home, significant modifications to allow mobility need to be made, and specialised equipment and vehicle modifications are also needed.Tim is an active member of the local community, including the East Burwood Football Club, and looks forward to resuming his attendance at his son’s football matches. Single parent Tim has been in hospital since February; the kids are desperately missing their father and can’t wait to have him home.
HOW YOU CAN HELP!
Click on this link to Tims Go Fund Me page and donate some money to help pay for the changes needed to get Tim home. This is being organised by Sharon Bridgman who is a Team Manager for the Junoirs, so get around it! GO TIM!
New 7-Eleven Clash Jumpers Debut
A big thank you to 7-Eleven for supplying our brand new clash jumper which made their first outing against Silvan this past weekend. They helped the RAMS to an impressive 81 point win over the Cats in the Seniors and a huge 128 point win in the Reserves.
We are trialing showing live video of Saturday home games on the big screen upstairs in the sporting club. We believe this is a first for any club in the EFL. Check it out at the next home game and let us know what you think!
