Round 18 news
We owe our wonderful coaching staff a massive thanks for their unrelenting commitment despite it being such a tough and challenging season.
$5 Grand in the Hand ... in many hands!
We held our big fundraiser on a great day for all, and the club was the winner - in so many ways.
Round 17 News
A painful day for both our senior teams as we experienced the full force of the Xavs, all the same there were lessons to be learnt. Praise our Unders who got a well-deserved win.
Steadfast in the face of adversity
No matter the result on the field, OCGFC has grown immensely in 2016. Best and Fairest night, women's football, Simon Beasley - there's plenty to read about in this week's news.
Bleak weather, bleak football but Unders stand tall
A tough year is in the home stretch, but we know there's plenty more to take from 2016.
Results on the scoreboard haven't been going our way yet we are seeing the results off the field as the club builds depth, unity and resilience for the future.
Party like it's 1986!!
It's on this Saturday, July 16th starting with lunch from midday in Cookie's kitchen at Carey Bulleen.
Then we're going to sit back and marvel at the level the Panthers have reached as we watch the current side take on St Bernards, maybe bemoaning the demise of the drop-kick and the half-time cigarette.
We'll also be at the evening at the Elgin Inn in Hawthorn where you can join us for dinner or even just a drink.
All but two of the 1986 side will be attending so it's a guaranteed good time for all.
Young Panthers rock the foundations
GENERATIONEXT is Generation NOW! The Panthers have made us proud with a magnificent win against St Kevins Old Boys. Get around them Panther fans!
What exactly did Taz cook up?
It's the half-way mark and off-field we've been kicking some great goals, while we know on the field we're going to take some big steps in the second half of the year.
A little ray of sunshine on a winter's day
Winter hit hard last week but all our teams adapted to the conditions well. The Under 19s led the way but despite the other sides losing there is definitely gold at the end of the rainbow.
Great courage in the face of adversity
Results are still going against us but the spirit and camaraderie around the club is fantastic, and the on-field performances are really starting to show we're heading in the right direction.
Round six saw us starting to find the goals but unfortunately so did our opposition.
More pain, but it will be worth it in the end
The results once again didn't fall our way, but we're blooding a lot of young talent and know we'll see the benefits in the long run.
A year is a long time in footy
12 months on and a lot has changed.
Our GENERATIONNEXT blueprint is always going to take time to show results, and while the wins aren't yet flowing, we are seeing positives across the club.
