ACA Hits Record Numbers

As the Australian summer draws to an exciting and dramatic finale, it gives us great pleasure to announce the ACA continues to reach record membership numbers. Currently our membership numbers stand at 1,390, of which 714 are Life Members (66 new life members in 2015-16) and 63 being first time members of the ACA.

Our goal is to continue to see the membership numbers grow which will enable us to continue to offer further benefits to all members.

If you know of a former team mate that would benefit from becoming an ACA member or if you require any further information about ACA Membership, please contact Graham Manou at the ACA on 03 9698 7200 or at

“It’s not just about the hard times. It’s about staying healthy and looking out for each other. The current male players respect wheat we’ve all put in to the game, that’s why they’ve put the money up for this Program.” - Greg Matthews
