DALYSTON Football Netball Club held
its annual presentation evening recently
at the Wonthaggi Workmen’s Club.
Two hundred people attended to celebrate
what has been a very good year for the club.
Frank Angarane introduced the night saying
he believed the club is in a very healthy a posi-
tion at the moment. In the last two to three years
Dalyston has won premierships almost all grades
of football and netball.
It currently fields eight football teams, seven
grades of netball as well as having a Netta and
Auskick program. In 2015 the club introduced
a youth girls’ football team, now in their second
season as premiers and the club is also well on
the way to having a senior women’s football team
In the late 1950’s and early 60’s Dalyston had
great football success off the back of the family
of McRae brothers.
It is no coincidence that the grandchildren of
those brothers are very prominent in the success-
ful footy and netball teams it currently has.
The club is in a very strong position thanks
to a very hard working and dedicated committee,
coaches, volunteers, sponsors and members.
It was only been a little over 10 years since
the club was struggling to field teams and close
Angarane said the leadership shown by Paul
Dunlop and members of his committee has
played a big part of where the club is today and
cannot be understated.
The club believes it faces an exciting future
with its move to the West Gippsland League next
