After nearly a century, the Junee Diesels football club is at risk of closing if it does not see fresh committee blood.
The annual general meeting held on October 31 saw only nine attendees.
Too few to form a new committee, the meeting was suspended and rescheduled for 6:30pm on November 14 at the Ex-Services Memorial Club.
By which time, the current team hopes attendance will double.
“We really need about 20 people to be there,” said president Simon Vanzanten.
“There are 10 or 15 roles that need to be filled, and right now it’s all being done by just eight of us.”
If another committee is not formed, the current team will be left with little option.
“We’re really getting desperate, without a committee we won’t be a football club,” said Mr Vanzanten.
“It’s been around for 92 years, we don’t want to go down that path.”
The timing could not be less opportune, with the touch football tournament to kick off this Thursday, and the long-awaited field upgrades to begin after Christmas.
“We’re really hoping some of the parents of current players or some of our former players will step up to take some of the load. The more we have in the ranks, the less work for us all to do.”
Mr Vanzanten has stressed that committee members need not come from a footballing background either.
“You don’t have to know all that much about it, the commitment can be as big as you’d like,” he said.
“Anything from helping in the canteens to serving on the exec team and attending fortnight meetings, it’s up to you and it’s all appreciated.”
