Veteran Grange Thistle volunteer Cliff Hunter has called it a day after more than fifteen years of hard graft at Grange Thistle Soccer Club in a multitude of capacities. Originally drawn into volunteering when his son started playing junior football, Cliff and his wife Fran have been highly decorated for their tireless commitment to helping others.
Few club members could hope to boast the list of accolades he has accumulated whilst at the Club. These include a life membership offer (which he turned down with true Hunter humility), a Jimmy Perotte Award (Club Member of the Year) shared with his wife Fran, Football Brisbane Volunteer Awards and, perhaps the pinnacle of all acknowledgements, having a part of Lanham Park named in his honour, Cliffy’s Corner.
Having served faithfully and fervently as a Director of the company as well as on the Junior and Senior Football Committees, Cliff is also remembered for his countless hours over a number of years as Groundsman. Still a wealth of knowledge, Cliff took the lead in marking out Field 1 at the start of the 2014 pre-season before hanging up his boots in earnest.
Company Director and Senior Football Operations Manager, Christian “Gruff” Bow said that the Grange Thistle community will sorely miss a true stalwart of the Club. “Cliff has been one of the real good guys in sports administration as well as in his charity work for the wider community. You would have to go a long way to find a stronger advocate for ethical behaviour in running a not-for-profit entity.
“The Hunter family have also championed significant Club fundraising initiatives like the junior barbecue on Saturday mornings as well as by consistently donating prizes for Club raffles and auctions.”
Grange Thistle President, Football Committee Chairman and Life Member, Matthew Bamberry, had this to add, “It is sad to see great club people such as Cliff and Fran move on, as their passion and dedication to Grange Thistle is something that is greatly valued by all that are involved here and they will be hard to replace. The Club, and myself in particular, would like to thank them for all their hard work over the years and to wish them all the best for their new adventures. We look forward to seeing them when they pop in to “check-up” on us when their travels allow them.”
Grange Thistle’s senior women’s team is looking for new and immediate support for its Division 5 campaign kicking off this weekend. With home games on a Sunday morning and an excellent club culture, this is the perfect opportunity for any Grange Thistle supporters or local community members wishing to get outdoors, meet new people and get fit.
To find out more or to get involved, please contact Senior Women’s Coach, Dominic Gonzales on firstname.lastname@example.org Training is held on Thursday nights from 7:00pm at Lanham Park, 1 Prince Street, GRANGE.

A spirited young team of Grange Thistle U6 players took to the field under the bright lights of Suncorp Stadium recently to entertain the crowd at half time of the Brisbane Roar v Wellington Phoenix A League clash. They were up against tough opponents in a Brisbane Lions outfit who had a couple of years’ more experience under their belts but they kept up their courage and did their colours proud by all reports.
Oliver Jones, Miller Childs, Thomas Jones, Nicholas Lamprecht, Alexander Lamprecht and Charlie Parkin all turned out for the big occasion and had their first real taste of competitive football ahead of the 2014 season.
A practice match to be held at Grange has been organised for Under 14, 15 and 16 age groups on Sunday 16th of February.
