President – Samuel Irvine Casey
‘m stoked to take on the role as President, having previously served five years as Treasurer and last year as Vice President (Seniors).
Bowman Park has been my home for 23 years and I’m honoured to be in a position to give back to the community that has given so much to me.
I am privileged to be able to build on the strong foundations left by past Presidents and in 2023 will focus on facility improvements including upgraded lighting and playing surfaces and continue our commitment to support the growth of women’s football.
Bardon Latrobe FC is a great community club and I’m going to do everything I can to ensure our members from 5 to 45+ continue to experience the same joy and sense of pride that I do when putting on the Red & White.

My son Bayley has been playing at Bardon since under 6’s and is now in the under 12’s Kangaroos team.With the Womens’ World Cup being played in Australia and New Zealand this year, it is so exciting to be a part of a community soccer club that promotes and encourages all their players – male or female – to enjoy this wonderful game and to have fun.

Vice President (Juniors) – Vacant
The club is calling for volunteers for a Vice President (Juniors)
Treasurer – Ian Murray
I recently joined the club as a parent of two young children in the Miniroos programme. I was immediately impressed by the club’s culture and the dedication of its committee and many other volunteers.
During football season, the highlight of my week is taking in the community atmosphere of Bowman Park on a Saturday morning as I watch my kids’ matches and many others taking place.
I have a background in finance and became treasurer starting from the 2022 season. I look forward to supporting the committee and being involved in building on some of the great work that has happened in recent years to grow the club, invest in facilities, and provide the best member experience possible for everyone in the community.
Facilities manager – Mark Keane
s will be my tenth year being involved with Bardon Latrobe Football Club and in that time there has been significant improvements to the facilities at the club. I endeavour to continue the progress that has been made in supporting football at Bowman Park.
The improvement to the turf at Bowman Park has been the biggest accomplishment for the small group of volunteers who make up the fields team. In 2023 we will see the best turf ever at Bowman Park!
There is always room on the mowing roster if anyone is keen to get involved with the team.
Registrar – Phil Cowlishaw
Having retired from the President’s role in 2020 – I continue to enjoy contributing to the committee as the Registrar. I’m here to help our members & players register at the club and ensure the fees are equitable and fair.
I’m also heavily involved with maintaining and improving the facilities and you’ll see me at the club mowing and repairing goals. I’m currently working hard to upgrade our field lighting with stage 1 scheduled to be complete in the first quarter of 2023.
Finally I’m passionate that our players and families get to experience our welcoming and friendly club culture and get to play the best football they can whether they are 4 or 64 years old.
Marketing and Communications Manager – Ryan Taylor
I have been involved with Bardon Latrobe for over 10 years in a number of different roles.
I am proud to have played a part in the progress the club has enjoyed in that time and communicating to the members and community.
2023 will be a significant year and I’m excited that new investment means we’ll be updating kits including a new design.
This year will also see the FIFA Women’s World Cup arriving on our shores and it is essential community clubs like ours see the benefits.
