Statement: John Larkins

Stepping Down but Not Away

The Aberfeldie Sports Club would like to inform our members, supporters, families and the wider EDFL community that our esteemed President of the Senior Football Section Aberfeldie Sports Club (ASC), John Larkins, has decided to finally stand down from the role.

John (JL) has been President of the Senior Football Section Aberfeldie Sports Club (ASC) for over 20 years and was also Aberfeldie Sports Club Chairman for 6 years.

John Larkins contribution and dedication to the Aberfeldie Sports Club is without equal and Abers would not be the successful club it is today without the influence and hard work that JL has provided over so many years.

JL is well respected within the EDFL Community and has always had the best interest of the competition at heart. He has been awarded life membership of the Aberfeldie Sports Club, the EDFL and has also been recognised by Moonee Valley Council in 2008 with “The Spirit of Moonee Valley Award” for his services to local sport and the local community.

John will continue as an ex officio member of the Aberfeldie Sports Club Board and will be the ASC appointed Delegate on EDFL matters.

Whilst the Aberfeldie Sports Club are poorer from the loss of John as Senior Football President, we are extremely fortunate to have had John’s undying commitment over so many years.

We would also like to recognise Johns wife, Gail Larkins (also an ASC Life Member), who has been so supportive of JL while being actively involved in various committees and working groups during their journey.

We will be arranging a function in the new year to show our gratitude and thanks for the contribution John and Gail have made to the Aberfeldie Sports Club. (details to follow)
