Katrina came to the club in extremely fortunate timing. When the club frantically searched for a new club secretary, Katrina stepped up and has embraced the role truly. This year Katrina’s daughter Chloe was not able to participate in a TVFC side due to the changes in her age division, Chloe had to participate as a Moe Utd player for the season. Despite this, Katrina still stuck with TVFC as secretary, managing all of the clubs correspondence, she took on the role of senior league delegate, taking time out of her life every month to drive to important league meetings to represent Trafalgar at the senior level. Katrina is available for club fundraisers and volunteers her time to TVFC regularly, for a parent without a child actively playing at the club – her contributions to the TVFC have been outstanding.

Claudia is a TVFC women’s player. She is a new committee member this year, canteen coordinator and often helps out the club in anyway she can. Although she lives in Melbourne, she often makes sure the jobs she is in charge of are done. Every home game, she is in the canteen before her game which means she’s often there at 9:30am, and after. Sometimes doesn’t leave til 5pm.
Dylan has been a long serving and dedicated volunteer at TVFC for many years now. Up until this season Dylan has lead the club as Club President. However, this year due to work in Melbourne and a great opportunity to join the Latrobe Valley Soccer League Board, Dylan has taken a step back at the committee level. However, Dylan still plays for the TVFC Senior Men and has this year served the club well as the Senior Coordinator. He has overseen communication and weekly management of the senior aged teams and liaised with both the Men’s and Women’s Coaches. Dylan was also instrumental in the securing of sponsorship from The Courthouse Restaurant (Warragul). TVFC is grateful for Dylan’s ongoing commitment to the club.
Lachlan has been a committee member at TVFC for several years now. However this is his first season as Club President. He selflessly took on the role which was suddenly vacated at the start of the season. The entire club owes a great deal to Lachlan for taking on this role when no-one else would. As Club President, Lachlan represent the club at both Latrobe Valley Soccer League meetings and Trafalgar Recreation Precinct meetings. He liaises with Baw Baw Shire to improve the club’s facilities, such as the new carpark. Lachlan does a great deal the scenes that many would not be aware of. For example he is in regular contact with numerous groups to investigate funding options for a new change room facility. In additio to his presidential duties, Lachlan has marked the grounds throughout the year. He attends many home junior matches and is very supportive of players and coaches alike. Lachlan also plays as the goal keeper for both the Men’s Reserves and Seniors, regularly playing two matches each Sunday.
