VALE: Paul “Moby” Noonan

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of a great SKOB man – Paul “Moby” Noonan.

He passed away peacefully on Saturday 3rd March aged 66 after a long struggle with illness. He fought an extraordinarily brave battle and retained his positive disposition to the end.

Moby was a very popular character around the club. He played between 1971 and 1977 playing 3 Senior games and 29 in the Reserves. He was also the runner for the Seniors for a period in the 1980’s.

A man who never took a backward step he was engaging, entertaining and charismatic.

Albeit that he was equally busy with his rowing and watching the Demons – he was always interested in the SKOB’s and a happy participant in many a club celebration.

SKOB News Update

Welcome to 2018.

After our spectacular 2017 season (if you need reminding:  the club fielded a record 10 teams - making us the largest senior football club in Australia - we had nine teams play finals, six made it to grand finals and three win premierships) – we are aiming high again in 2018. Plenty of work has been going on in the background with the Committee putting a lot of of energy into every aspect of the Club.

The committee (and respective roles) comprises the following:

  • President: Michael Doble

Apart from all the football aspects we have been working on a range of operational aspects of the club. We are fortunate to have great assistance from volunteers to help drive various projects:

  • A complete Risk & Compliance review (driven by John Murray with assistance from David White)
  • The roll out of an expanded Youth Mentoring Program (Michael Doble, Wayne Oswald and Brian McGuiness)
  • Enhancing Player Support Program activities (JP Whitbread)
  • Sourcing new sponsors (Committee)
  • Looking for additional training grounds (Michael Kelly; Stephen Kerr)
  • Website overhaul (John Fogarty)
  • New supporter and player apparel and online shop (Kate Di Natale)
  • A new logo (Jarad Morrison)
  • Support for the Registration Secretary (John Ogge)
  • Implementing the Conduct Committee recommendations & structure (Nick Brennan)
  • Willows membership (Tom Crowley, Dave Sheehy, David Parkes, Tim Arnold, Damian Ryan, Basil Crowley, Dave Whelan)
  • Volunteer co-ordination (Brendan Miller)
  • Sponsor liaison (Jonathan O’Donoghue)

We thank each of these people for their assistance.
