(11 Oct, 2017), held at the Mount Barker football clubrooms.  Outgoing President, Tim Glover has accepted the Vice Presidency role. We thank Tim for his service to the club. Hughes addressed the well attended meeting, and his philosophy was along the lines of “Many hands make light work” acknowledging that we all lead busy lives and to make the club successful, is the need to divide tasks to make the club run smoothly, and not be onerous for a few. Thanks also too the following club members, who nominated to be on the committee: Annabelle Greenslade, Mike Field, Bradley Orr, David Power, Shane Teakle, Darren Small, Scott Filmer, Frank Howe, Craig Bell, Mel Gallas, Mel Eckberg, Sonia Tarca and Josh Teakle.

Vale Dennis Atkinson

It is with sadness the Mount Barker Football Club says farewell to former Barkeroo Dennis “Acko” Atkinson. Dennis passed away earlier this week after a long battle with illness. “Acko” was a member of the Roos 1982 Premiership team and was “clearly” adjudged as best on ground (B.O.G.) in that final played at Lobethal Oval against Onkas.  “Acko” also played in the 1983 Reserve Grade Grand Final for the Barkeroos and again B.O.G.  Our thoughts go out to Dennis’s Family & Friends.
