    SOUTH Melbourne’s return to the national stage has been cut short in gut-wrenching fashion, losing an epic penalty shootout to Palm Beach Sharks at Cbus Super Stadium.

    AUSTRALIA are desperate for wickets after being bowled out for just 136 with Jimmy Anderson the chief destroyer. FOLLOW IT LIVE!

    THE decision to effectively end Brad Haddin’s career has polarised former Australian greats, but Rod Marsh is adamant selectors had no other choice.

    A former A-League goalkeeper has been stood down from Wednesday night’s FFA Cup action after posting a Tweet calling for Adam Goodes to be “deported”.

    THERE were goals galore, late drama and penalty shootout drama on a frenetic opening night of the 2015 FFA Cup. Re-live it all here and watch EVERY goal!

    Women In Sport

    Women in Sport was designed to celebrate all that is great about female athletes.

    This function will be different every year and can be held either at the MCC or at an external location. Our function includes a two course specially selected menu with a full beverage service.

    This event provides us the opportunity to showcase the contributions made to our sporting industry by women from all different sports.

    2013 saw us celebrate female Olympians with Tales from the Olympic Starting Line. Our Olympians included: Shelley Chaplin – wheelchair basketball, Leanne Del Toso - wheelchair basketball, Elise Rechichi - sailing, Danielle Woodward – slalom kayak, Loudy Wiggins - diving and Liz Cambage - basketball. Our panel host for the evening was Tiffany Cherry.

    We also had our own WOMCC Committee member Margot Foster who was a member of the crew which won Australia its first Olympic medal in women’s rowing. Margot played the important role as stroke and she stroked the coxed four to a bronze medal at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles.
    This year was a networking event only however, future events will combine networking and fundraising depending on the format of the function. 

    In 2014 we celebrated Women in Racing with a Raceday at Flemington. Our MC for the day was Judith Fitzmaurice from the VRC. Speakers included Sal Perna the Racing Integrity Commissioner, Peter Rowland from Rowland Catering, Des O’Keefe from the Jockey’s Trust and jockeys included Michael Rodd, Katelyn Mallyon, Kayla Nisbet and Jackie Beriman. The 2014 Melbourne Cup was made available by Joe McGrath from the VRC for photos with the attendees and Milliner Karen Hamilton provided numerous hats of various styles and colours for guests to try on and buy. This was a networking event only.   

    Please support these functions and book early so as not to miss out.
