Mackay Wanderers FC - Est. 1923

Presidents Welcome 2015........

Welcome to the 2015 season!

Mackay Wanderers FC has played a major role in Mackay football since 1923 and has been built up over many years of tradition and success, while at the same time striving to build a strong family culture base within the club and community.

This is quite evident through the many family ties within the club. There are many family members that have worn the red and white proudly over the years and it is not uncommon to see grandparents cheering on their children and their grandchildren playing for the club they themselves represented.

With the Junior fixtures starting in March,
Pre season games for our MCL Men's & Women's teams currently underway, our Premier Men's side hotly contesting for a place in the FFA Cup rounds before the Senior Competition gets underway after Easter.  We will be running our very first SQUIRTS sessions for 3-5 year old's after Easter also.

Our club is run by volunteers and we highly encourage people to lend a hand if required.  Whether it is coaching or managing your child's team, jumping on board the committee to share you idea's, or helping out in the canteen or BBQ, every little bit helps.

I trust everyone will participate in the right spirit, respecting their team mates, the opposition and their supporters and most importantly the referees and their assistants.

Whether you are returning to Wanderers or this is your first year with the club, or especially if it is your first year with the sport, I hope this year is as successful and as enjoyable as it can be.

Defib your Club for Life 
Nye Keegan Sporting Hearts Donate Defibrillator
Nye Keegan Sporting Hearts was originally formed in January 2009 to promote awareness and prevention of “Sudden Cardiac Death in the Young”. It’s estimated that 300 to 500 people, under the age of 35 will die each year from a sudden cardiac arrest due to an underlying and undiagnosed cardiac condition.

In 2013 thanks to the efforts of Keith McAree from the Mackay Wanderers Football Club, we raised over $5000. We will be using the funds to purchase two AED units (Automated External Defibrillator) through an organisation called
Defib Your Club for Life.
DFYCFL defibrillators have already saved lives.

Nye Keegan Sporting Hearts having kindly donated one of these units to Mackay Wanderers which we are very grateful for.

2015 sees things off to a terrific start in which Mackay Wanderers have already been able to donate $2000 from gate takings from the weekend of 13/14th March.
To all those that contributed....THANKS SO MUCH!

Wanderers Girls Development Program
WAG's provide our junior female players with an opportunity to participate in specialised, girls only training sessions in addition to their own teams' training. WAGS also gives parents and coaches the chance to participate in each session.

Training sessions led by Senior Women's Coach & players.  Sessions will be fun, full of active participation and players will learn a variety of skills to assist in building your knowledge, technique and confidence in soccer. 

At Wanderers, we feel that every player is of utmost importance and with increasing numbers of girls playing soccer, we want to encourage your learning and enjoyment of the game while also building your confidence on and off the field.
