As the 2023 VAFA season kicked off on Saturday the 15th of April, the Caulfield Grammarians Football Club were led by a stellar leadership group. Both the Women’s and Men’s teams have welcomed a new leadership group who will steer the club towards the ultimate goal of a premiership.
Men’s Captain: Joe McClelland
Joe McClelland will become the 44th Men’s Captain of the Fields joining some famous names to lead the club over 100 years. Joe joined the Fields in 2016 after spending a year in China after graduating from Caulfield Grammar. He was announced as U/19’s Captain but after only 7 games was promoted to the Seniors and has been a stalwart ever since. A tough nosed utility Joe has spent most of his career in the backline, however is primed to move into a midfield role. He played a leading role in our 2019 B Grade Premiership side and received some media attention in 2021 when he was part of our first win in A Grade in 24 years as his father Mark (1987 B&F) was part of the previous A Grade win. He has played 71 games for CGFC.
