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 a young age 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 Regional College and we play soccer within the Gippsland Soccer League. We have a wonderful working relationship with Mary Mackillop Regional 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 Junior and senior game day uniform as well as receive funds towards a new pitch and lights. This project commenced in 2020 and is now complete. The Club would like to thank members Stu and Lorcan for volunteering their time after hours to work on establishing the new grass. 2020/21 has also seen our club successful in COVID cleaning funding, as well as portable full sized goals. In 2021 we were also successful in a funding application to update our Mini-roos game day jersey. You will see our Miniroos in new uniform in the 2022 season.
