HISTORY OF OUR CLUB
The Leongatha Knights Football Club was initially established in 2004. We are a community based non-for-profit organisation focused on providing an interactive fun, enthusiastic and encouraging journey for soccer players from xx years old to seniors players (men and women).
The Leongatha Knights Football Club is based in Leongatha, a small rural farming community, our home ground is based at the Mary Mackillop Secondary College and we play soccer within the Gippsland Soccer League. We have a wonderful working relationship with Mary Mackillop Secondary College which allows us to maintain excellent facilities.
Leongatha Knights Football Club is run by a dedicated voluntary committee of management who are dependent upon the efforts of the committee and parents alike for fundraising and working bees to facilitate change to benefit the club and ultimately the local community.
Through successful funding applications in 2018 we were able to update our game day playing uniform (alternate game day uniform to be rolled out in 2019) as well as receive funds towards a new pitch and lights. This project is planned to commence in 2019.
