Club Statement

It has been a tough year for the entire football community on and off the field and I am sure most of our sponsors felt an economic slowdown that transpired from Covid in some way.

Banksia Tigers Football Club appreciates all of your contributions. Your continued support has given the club the ability to facilitate the youth’s needs on and off the field.

What a year it has been! Another great season where teams featured in 12 semifinals and in 8 grand finals. Winning 6 grand finals including the Premier League Mens double which puts the club into the history books of the St George Football Competition is a major feat.

We have been able to enhance the football standards over the past couple of years due to the partnership we have established with Focus Football Development for the Junior boys and the inception of the Banksia Tigers girls football academy in 2019.

We have been able to buy high quality apparel and equipment to further enhance the look, professionalism, development and game standards at the club.

The club has worked hard in the background with Bayside council, state and federal governments to improve the facilities at Gardiner Park. This includes the new clubhouse and much needed lighting delivered a few years ago.

The biggest achievement to date and is due to start next week is the FIFA approved synthetic field at Gardiner Park. The new synthetic field will provide ample opportunities for the community and especially Banksia Tigers FC to further enhance the football development of the youth and standards of the game. Thanks to the State Government for funding the project and special thanks to Bayside Council staff and especially the Mayor, Councillors and General Manager for their unbelievable efforts in getting this milestone over the line.

We thank all of our sponsors who have contributed to the success of Banksia Tigers since inception. Without your generous contributions over the years we would not be where we are today and we wouldn’t have achieved the success the club has seen to date.

We look forward to working with the local business community for many years to come and hope that 2021 is prosperous for us all.
