Weston Creek Soccer Club is making it known that they’re moving on the greenfields of Molonglo:
The club previously known as Weston Creek Soccer Club has unanimously voted at its Annual General Meeting to rename itself Weston Molonglo Football Club.
“This is a huge step forward for the Club,” Club President Chris Brown said.

“It signifies our expansion to cater for the new Molonglo region, which will include 55,000 new residents. At last year’s Senior Presentation Night, we were also heartened to hear Minister Andrew Barr indicate that we will be able to call the new $11 million Molonglo sporting facility our home ground when it is built.”
The change of name is one of the Club’s first steps in reaching out to the growing Molonglo community, some residents of which have already registered as players.
“We will now be pro-actively engaging with the community – getting into schools, community organisations and other areas to increase our membership and ensure that football lovers have a home the moment that they move in,” Mr Brown said.
The Club retains its 42 years of proud history, with the now famous magpie and football emblem remaining in the revised logo.
