Message from 2022 President Adrian Sibbick
It’s a real honour to be elected President of this great football club for 2022.
I want to thank Megan and the 2021 committee for their leadership of the club through an incredibly difficult season with COVID-19 and for all our players and coaches who achieved some great on-field results.
We’re fortunate to have the experience of Megan, Damien and Kai as past presidents of the club on our committee, as well as several continuing and new committee members for 2022.
I know many of our club community already and am excited to see what the Bats can do in 2022, especially with Kyle Emley and Miguel Limson leading our on field programs, and a number of players already committing for next season.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions on how the committee can support the club in the season ahead.
Message from Past President Megan Gigacz
It’s been an honour to serve this club as president, and while I’ve stepped down from the position due to commitments away from the club, I’m glad to be remaining on the committee and supporting our new president Adrian who has been a long-time member and active contributor to the club.
He will be a fantastic leader for us moving forward.
While it has been a difficult year with the shortened season, I am truly proud of the progress and achievements UTS AFC has made in this time, especially the million-dollar grant for the redevelopment of Bat and Ball Oval and our expansion of the women’s program.
A huge thanks to all our Bats players, members and volunteers for their work in getting us back to our winning ways in 2021 amid COVID-19.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with the people at this footy club, and I look forward to seeing you around the grounds this year.
