Renovation Progress

The renovations continue to make great progress as can seen within the following photos. Unless I'm mistaken I think that's a level floor!

Ready, Steady, RENOVATE!

It may be roped off outside but lets take sneaky peak inside! 

The renovations are well underway, what a transformation already ...... 

Queensland Government Clubhouse Grants

Needless to say the work involved and the cost associated with the renovations is significant and all grants helps us get one step closer to delivering the clubhouse we will enjoy growing into as the Eagles continue to spread their wings.

A BIG Zillmere Eagles thanks goes out to the Queensland Government for awarding us two gambling communities grants;

Gambling Community Benefit Fund (Clubhouse furniture)
Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund (Fitout clubhouse canteen & service area)

A word of thanks, acknowledgement & appreciation to our very own Liz O'Brien, it is through her fine work across all grant submissions which has delivered these wonderful funding opportunities. 

Brisbane City Council Clubhouse Grants

With renovations underway at the Zillmere Eagles Clubhouse a big word of thanks to the Brisbane City Council, not only for their funding but their fantastic support in bringing all parties and this project together. 

The renovations have in part been made possible through several BCC grants awarded to Zillmere Eagles;

Club13/14389 for strategic planning and good governance
Club13/14373 for refurbishments to the clubhouse

We can't wait to see the end results, this will make a proud club even prouder. 
You've got to admire the BCC logo, you got it, blue & gold!

An Eagle returns, Seniors Coaching Appointment Confirmed!

We are delighted to confirm the appointment of Ben Long to the role of Senior Coach for the 2015 Season. 

Ben started playing with the Eagles in 2000 and played through to 2006 after which he moved to Sandgate to commence an assistant coaching role. Becoming a senior coach of Sandgate in 09, he continued in this role for 4 years within Division 1. The last few years has seen Ben coaching the Pine Rivers Swans in the QAFA A Division. 

Ben’s coaching philosophy is about relationships with players, providing an environment of hard work and mateship and coaching players to reach their potential. He is determined to create a successful culture at the Eagles, one that is also welcoming and all inclusive from Under 19’s to Seniors. With some familiar names lining up on the coaching staff, including Rodney “Rocket” Suter, Brett Wilson and guest appearances from Dan Dickfos, it’s shaping up to be a cracking season.

Thoughts from Ben, “I have watched the last few years from the outside as the club won a premiership a few years ago and it is clear the club is in a great position. I am really proud and excited to be given this role. I am a former Eagles player and am really passionate about re-joining the club I have always considered my real footy home. It is an exciting time to be around the Eagles with the renovations to the club starting soon, so many great juniors coming through and hopefully a senior side capable of not only playing finals again, but winning a premiership”.

Ben has touched base with the existing playing group, if you have any questions or wish to make further enquiries contact Maurie Fitzgerald on 0413 001 216, or Ben directly on 0415 868 013.
