Theirs alot of people running there - how many do you get to vote for ?


I see a couple of the candidates have said that they would like to make the club profitable again. Does this mean that we are expecting to see another financial loss ?

A bit off topic..

I went past the old soap factory site yesterday; I was amazed at the number of units under construction. A challange for the new Board is to encourage the residents to become Port members. If 10% of the residents took out membership that would be a significant gain for the Burra..


Go Bonnas !!

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green



Is the whole board up for re election ??

Looks to be a quality field & please get Bonnas over the line, you must have people that understand the modern game.

Thought your good self would have had a lot to offer!!

Is Peter Bromley standing for Presidency again ?? Hope so.

He is a good man who's done a great job.

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

As I understand it, the board of directors is either 6 or 7, as there are more nominees that positions, I believe that all spots are up for election.

Click the link for the new board of directors for the Port Melbourne Football Club

Plus Digs yes Bonna's was voted in as the most popular vote. 

These elected board directors ticket were a reform group devised by former president Peter Saultry . Club members voted these people in with good trust of Peter Saultry's past success of running our club for over 20 years making a club stable from being in debt in the 1990's to a profitable club in his tenture as president .

This is the 2016 Annual Report from the AGM.

Also 2011 premiership players John Baird our captain in that year, Sam Pleming, Chris Cain and our current Captain Toby Pinwill were made Life members of the Port Melbourne Football Club.


Great to hear from you Bobby boy & to see your name still on th players sponsors list.

The four players awarded life membership have thoroughly earned their awards which brought me to thinking why for any reason Barry Kidd has never achieved that honour, Is it because he is a paid employee ??

Bonnas was a shoe in to be elected & will bring some up to date footy knowledge to the board.

Always thought that John Baird would have made an excellent director.

Merry Christmas & a happy new year to all the Borough boys & all posters.
