Announcing the formation of an important new MEMBERSHIP group that will be a VITAL part of our football club……..  


Many hundreds of people are connected to St.Bernards FC whether as a former player, coach, committee person, supporter, parent/grandparent, or have some other connection to this great club.  Several on this list racked up many, many games for the club and in the process experienced some of the best times of your life and made friendships that are still strong today. We want our young players coming through to experience everything the footy club has to offer just like those before them.


The BERNARD’S CLUB is open to all comers, and your big opportunity to be part of the footy club in a very tangible way. To be a member is only $250 and this money will go directly to sponsoring young men playing for our club that are either still at school, university or just starting their working life. Guys that need help. The club has several guys on our playing list that are studying course at university including osteopathy , physiotherapy, marketing, accounting, sports science, business management etc. and we want to help them. As you know many would be able to get good dollars playing in the EDFL but choose to play with us.
