Honour board competition winner - Margaret Torpy

Andre de Wet 10/Jul/2017
Margaret Torpy - Moorabbin Kangaroos
 

Since 1988, Torpy has gone above and beyond for the club in myriad off-field roles, and is almost single-handed responsible for keeping the club in existence.

Margarets's unwavering love for the Kangaroos saw her become the first woman inducted into the Southern Football Netball League Hall of Fame in 2016.

Margaret joined Moorabbin in 1987 when her son Greg joined as a player. Margaret took on the role of Assistant Secretary of the club in 1988, her second season at Widdop Crescent. In the years that followed she has held positions as club Secretary, Treasurer and, at times, both at once, as well as serving on the club’s committee. Torpy remains the club’s Treasurer in 2017.

But her biggest contribution to the Kangaroos came when she twice saved the club from the brink of implosion.

She is not afraid to roll her sleeves up on match day either, helping out in the canteen and as umpire escort, as well as preparing the players’ jumpers each week. 

In 2009 the club was on its knees. The entire committee had stepped down, leaving Torpy as the only remaining office bearer. She was instrumental in the formation of a new committee that not only resurrected the stricken club during its darkest hour, but allowed it to prosper, culminating in the 2012 Division 3 Senior premiership.

Margaret has over the years been recognised with many awards and accolades, including a prestigious AFL Merit Award, a SFNL Chairman’s Award and Life Membership of the Moorabbin Kangaroos. She was also a finalist in last year’s inaugural SFNL Women’s Achievement Award

Margaret is the true backbone of Moorabbin Kangaroos and you won't find someone more worthy.
