Dear GGS Football Community,
It is with great excitement that we reach out to you all with a new initiative and celebratory lunch.

Firstly, we are trying to find our most ‘Senior Living’ GGS Football players.
While we have compiled an initial list of known past GGS Football players (as held within the annals of The Corian etc), we are searching widely to find our oldest living players to be a part of the “GGS Football Senior XVIII”. The oldest living player will be named as the Captain.
We look forward to celebrating all their memories & achievements.
Please help us find and reunite all of these players with GGS Football – please contact us on ggsfootballclub@ggs.vic.edu.au with any information.

Secondly, we would like to cordially invite all ‘GGS Football Centurions’ who played for the School from its official inauguration in 1868 up until 1968, to an Inaugural Celebratory Lunch.

Invitees: All 1868 – 1968 GGS Football Players (plus partner/helper)

Timings: 12.00pm Lunch – Hawker Library, Corio Campus
1.00pm – 1st XVIII Home Game against Melbourne Grammar School begins
3.00pm – Post-game refreshments – please join us in the Gladys Bell Room

Dress: Smart casual

Note: This is an adult-only function, with alcohol being served.

We look forward to your support and celebrating such an incredible part of GGS history.
