Men of Football is a not for profit organisation which seeks to assist football participants in times of need. Our assistance is not solely for players but for any participant in football. We have some simple aims and objectives.

They include:

  • Assisting past football participants who may have fallen on hard times
  • Providing support and assistance to the families of past and present football participants who have passed on or need their support
  • Assisting current football participants to realise their potential and participation in the game

If you are someone who needs assistance to get through some hard times, or know of anyone who needs assistance, please contact us using either of the following forms:
  Hunter MoF Grant Application »
  Queensland & Northern Territory MoF Grant Application »

Below are some of the stories of the people we have been honoured to assist.

The plight of another member of our football community has been brought to the attention of Men of Football.

Bill Machin played junior football for Barnsley, then went on to play for KB youth, Stewart and Lloyds and West Wallsend.

He managed Wallsend seniors and also held the position of Club President.

Bill is suffering from a chronic liver ailment caused by misdiagnosis of medications for another health issue. He recently underwent "TIPS" surgery on his liver. His recovery is hindered by fatigue and other associated issues.

Men of Football have provided a grant that will enable Bill to have his lawns mowed for a period of six months while he recovers.

Remember if you are aware of anyone in our football family who could do with a helping hand, please contact us.
