FORMER CHIRNSIDE PARK JUNIOR NAMED RISING STAR NOMINEE

Screen Shot 2012-12-07 at 1.57.43 PM

Former EFL youngster Jordan Gysberts from the Melbourne Football Club has been announced as the Round 11 NAB AFL Rising Star nominee.

The 19-year-old mid-fielder earned his nomination after an outstanding performance on Friday night against Essendon at the MCG. He complemented his 30 possessions with four tackles and eight marks. Jordan, who turns 21 next week, spent a number of years in the Eastern Football League playing for Chirnside Park and then Norwood.

The nomination is Jordan’s second, after he was nominated after Round 11 of the 2010 season, before his season was cut short with a back injury.   Under the criteria for the NAB AFL Rising Star, a player may win nominations across two seasons, provided he has not played more than 10 games and is under 21 years of age.

Jordan made his AFL debut in Round Ten last year and was nominated as a Rising Star after his second league game. After returning to the VFL, he suffered a back injury and did not play in

the last two months of the season. This year, Jordan played his first senior match in Round Three and his sure-ball handling and neat disposal has kept him in the senior side since and won him another rising star nomination. Melbourne coach Dean Bailey said Jordan’s second Rising Star nomination demonstrates he is a key player with a promising future ahead.

“Jordie’s contribution against Essendon was terrific, he’s just a natural footballer who is clearly at home at the elite level of AFL,” Bailey said. Jordan represented Vic Metro in four matches in the 2009 NAB AFL Under 18 Championships before being drafted to Melbourne as selection 11 overall. During his stint with Vic Metro, Jordan averaged 16 possessions at 77 per cent efficiency and proved dangerous around goal, kicking five for the carnival.

In 2009, Jordan also played six matches with the Eastern Ranges and was part of the team’s leadership group. He averaged 23 disposals (nine contested) per match and was most impressive in the club’s two finals matches where he gathered a total of 50 possessions, 14 marks and booted three goals.

Chirnside Park wishes to congratulate Jordan on this achievement and continues to support him as he builds what we hope is a long and fruitful career in football.

Family Evening 20 Feb 2009


Screen Shot 2012-12-07 at 3.05.19 PM  Screen Shot 2012-12-07 at 3.05.33 PM
The annual President’s Luncheon was very well attended by a good cross section of 80 plus people from various divisions of the club, which included some of our much valued sponsors.  Our resident MC and life member Peter Anthony got things rolling by introducing life members and special guests. Auskick President Simon Steer spoke on the formation of Vic kick which is now Auskick and how it has grown to over 200 participants.  Justin touched on how the club was directly involved with the fires as we had members on the front fighting and others who lost some property. As a president he couldn’t be more prouder of the members and the community who attended and rallied behind this worthy cause. 

The President handed over the cheque for $13,240.75 to Mr Kevin Crosato who is the Eastern Central Council President for St Vincent de Paul Society, this was the total amount raised for the bushfire victims at a special family club day fundraiser held on February 20th which saw over 3000 people attending.  Kevin spoke on how the society was formed and his involvement as a volunteer for the past 21 years with St Vinnies. He also spoke on where the money and how it would be spent to help the victims who survived the horrific fires of black Saturday.

A bit of humour was also thrown in about how he missed out on playing for Carlton, it was a guy by the name of Jezza who was just that little bit better than him, who got the nod. And Kevin finished off with a true story about how Big Bad Mel Brown who played for Richmond in 1973-74, got his retribution when playing in Perth against a church team. Lets just say, he got in return what he dished out himself. 

Overall it was a very successful and eventful day for Chirnside Park Football club and the bush fire appeal.
