Presidents Welcome 2016........
Welcome to the 2016 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 again run our successful 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.
