Burwood Football Club thanks Andrew Mcveigh

At the recent AGM, the club formally passed it thanks to Andrew McVeigh who has stepped down from the club committee after many years. Andrew has been on the club committee for 13 years, 11 of those as President, and has many achievements to his name during this time. These include leading the club through two difficult COVID seasons, overseeing the rebuild of the facilities at Centenary Park, with the new pavilion opening in

2017 and then the upgrading of Blair Park facilities in 2019. Despite a growth in football clubs in the area, player and team numbers have remained stable during this time and the

club has a strong financial position following his tenure. The contribution to the club was somewhat of a family affair including Trina McVeigh, who has been a stalwart of the club canteen over recent years and his daughter Amelia, who has also been involved. We should not forget the dogs in the McVeigh family who have been regulars around the grounds too.

Andrew was also recognised by Football Canterbury with the Vince and Val Laws medal in

2022 and a Football NSW State award in the same year as well as receiving the Cec Barlow Award prior to this. Andrew was also recognised with a Life membership to the Club.

Andrew’s contributions to the club were not limited to his role on the committee, in 2009 he managed an over-50s Burwood team who won gold medal in the World Masters.

At the AGM Andrew’s dedication and tireless effort over the years were acknowledged and this sets a high bar for future President’s leading the club.

On behalf of numerous Committee members, hundreds of teams and thousands of players who have benefited from Andrew's efforts we would once again like to thank Andrew for his contribution to Burwood Football Club, we look forward to seeing him around the grounds again soon.
