The Gold and Blue Coterie

The Coterie of the Williamstown CYMS Amateur Football Club, aptly called The Gold and the Blue, was founded in 2008, not just to provide financial support to the club but for our supporters to get more out of their passion for local footy.

Today, The Gold and the Blue Coterie continues to be a vital part of the CYs family and all that it achieves, both as a football club and a responsible body of the local community.

With over 120 existing members and consistent growth, it also offers the opportunity for you to network with key stakeholders in the club and the community, an opportunity many of our members have used to forge new friendships to the benefit of their own businesses.

In season 2016, The Gold and the Blue Coterie will host three functions, being:

  • A luncheon on Friday, April 29 at the Prince Albert Hotel, Williamstown (the day before our home game against Ormond);
  • A luncheon on Friday, July 1, again at the Prince Albert Hotel (the day before our home game against fierce rivals Peninsula); and
  • The AFL Grand Final Eve Luncheon on Friday, September 30 on the Fearon, hosted in conjunction with the football club.

The Friday luncheon formula has been a great success, regularly drawing a capacity crowd (~100 guests) to the Prince Albert, where for only ~$50pp you will be entertained by a special guest speaker whilst enjoying a 2-course lunch from 2-5PM.  Past speakers have included a veritable who’s who of AFL football: Brown, Carey, Brereton, Watson, Mooney, Brownless, Hawkins, Daniher, Balme et al, as well as Coterie regular John Harms.  The late start is key here, allowing you to work close to a full day on the Friday, drop the car at home and finish your week off at a great function without the stress of having to rush back to work.

It is a Coterie that is anything but exclusive: rather it is a group that anyone can be a part of for what is a very reasonably priced donation.  You will feel equally at home whether you are a past player, parent, partner, supporter or local business owner.  The Coterie requires very little commitment from you other than to enjoy your involvement with the football club and attend the functions we run each year.
