Bayside City Council Elections 2020

About The Elections

On behalf of the president committee supporters and sponsors of the Old Brighton Grammarians Football Club we would like to congratulate the following candidates on their successful election to the Bayside City Council.

Beckett Ward – Clarke Martin
Bleazby Ward – Alex Del Porto 
Boyd Ward- Fiona Stitfold
Castlefield Ward – Jo Samuels- King
Ebden Ward – Laurie Evans
Dendy Ward – Hanna El Mouallem
Ivison Ward – Sonia Castelli

We look forward to working with the new council to realise our quest for a fit for purpose pavilion for our club and the wider community.

We would also like to extend our thanks to Rob Grinter, James Long and Michael Heffernan for their service to our community but who were unsuccessful in their quest for  re-election.

For more information, visit the Bayside City Council Website.


The Old Brighton Grammarians Football Club is a non-political, volunteer, community sporting organization. However, the upcoming Bayside City Council Elections shape as being vitally important for our future. We have therefore extended an offer to all candidates, asking them to make a brief video statement to the Old Brighton Community. 

With the incredibly successful introduction of our OBGFC Women’s Team in 2017, our total number of teams has increased from three to six.
Brighton Cricket Club & Brighton Beach Junior Football Club, our co-tenants of Brighton Beach Oval, have experienced similar levels of growth over the past 20 years.

Therefore the upgrading of sporting ovals, facilities & pavilions in Bayside, in particular Brighton Beach Oval, has never been of higher importance.
