Community Commitment Respect
Welcome to our new AJAX Football Club website! We are really excited to be able to communicate with our community via the revamped site.
Even though 2020 has certainly been full of challenges, whilst we could not actually play competitive footy, we are not letting anything stop us from supporting our players, members, partners and community during COVID-19.
We have included a COVID-19 Support Tools section where we will be providing support in many ways; suggested Apps for relaxation, mindfulness, meditation & mental health, to information on nutrition & diet. Regular input from Club Physiotherapist not just for our players but for our community young and old.
We understand this is a difficult time for many and want to ensure that our players and their families, as well as our community, stay healthy in mind and body.
Please feel free to reach out to us anytime with feedback or if you wish to contact our committee all their details are on the site.
Looking forward to seeing many of you soon and wish all our players, members, supporters and partners all the best to stay healthy, safe and well.
Ronnie Lewis - Club President
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of one of AJAX’s greatest Clubmen - Peter “Rocky” Rockman on 3 October 2020.
Rocky played 96 games and earned best Clubman during his playing career. Joining the Juniors he was honoured with a Life Membership acknowledging his many years of commitment to the Junior Club. In 1990’s he joined the Senior Club and only until recently served as a valued member of the Senior Committee. He went on to join a very select few and added to his Life Membership at the Junior Club with a Life Membership to the AJAX Senior Football Club.
‘Rocky’ provided over 20 years of essential carb-loaded Thursday night post-training dinners as well as managing and manning the canteen over this period.
A true gentleman, loved a chat about any topic, always willing to provide his views and strategic recommendations to Coaches, Committee and players. He generously provided many coaches and supporters with weekly sandwiches and tasty snacks at each match.
On behalf of every player, coach and committee member, we wish a long life to his wife Rochelle, children Jody and Justin, their partners Andrew and Cathy and his grandchildren Raphael, Elijah, Mia and Bella.
Rocky will be forever missed by all Committee, players, coaches, members and supporters. A real mensch and legend of our Club. One of a kind.
