After three years at the helm, Andrew Mott will be stepping down as President of Yarrawonga Football Netball Club at the club’s AGM on Monday, December 11.
“I won’t be renominating,” the 41-year-old told the Yarrawonga Chronicle. “I’ve been in the job three years and had always had this time in mind.
“I set myself some goals I wanted to achieve but didn’t quite get them all completed.”
Mr Mott praised the club’s committee which he described as “brilliant”. “It was a pretty significant change when I took over. There were a lot of new faces.
“Julie Clarke led us to a corporate structure where the club can clearly see the benefits and more connection with the community,” he said.
“She was probably the one who allowed the corporate governance structure. On the back of her work with E Works, we employed Penne Tregenza full-time as an administrative person. It allowed our club a focal point.”
Mr Mott’s praise extended to senior football coach Chris Kennedy. “He’s done an enormous amount of work. Kennedy Builders have really helped the club, been wonderful supporters.
“A lot of people have put in a lot of time, Ross Mulquiney included. It might take two or three years before we have success on all fronts with the changed direction.”
The outgoing president loved witnessing the club’s football and netball finals action, and said he is “really looking forward to seeing the club going from strength to strength”.
“There are demands on my time,” the surveyor with North East Survey Design in Yarrawonga said. “I’ve enjoyed my time but now believe it’s time for someone new, with fresh ideas.”
