WELCOME GREG BAUM: OUR NEW CLUB PRESIDENT
St Mary’s Salesian AFC is delighted to announce that Greg Baum was elected as our new Club President in November 2018, taking over from David Malcolm who has stepped aside after 6 years in the top job.
“Greg’s profile, experience and passion for St Mary’s Salesian is the perfect mix to lead our club into our next phase.” said former club secretary, current women’s football director Peter Leman. “This is a very exciting and popular appointment.”
Greg is well known as the chief sports columnist and associate editor with The Age and is one of the country’s finest sports writers. He has covered cricket in three continents, summer and winter Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games, World Cups of soccer and cricket, and more than 30 AFL grand finals.
He has been a regular match-day supporter at Ferndale Park since coming down to the club in 2011 to support son Nick, and has become a very popular and respected member of the Saints family.
“I am honoured and flattered to have been asked to take on the President’s job”, Greg said at the club’s Annual General Meeting. “Our 2019 Committee is in place, pre-season starts on Monday, our coaching panel is appointed and there is exciting recruiting news – so there is lots to look forward to in 2019.”
