There is a vacant seat to be filled at Latrobe Football Club's leadership table, as the Demons ramp up their quest to lock down a new president for the 2024 NWFL season. With the club checking off all of its board positions at its annual general meeting on Thursday, November 30, acting president Rod Walker said the final piece of the puzzle was still being sought. "It was the first time in a long time I can remember filling all 10 director positions on AGM night," Walker said. "We need a president who is a very good business manager, and doesn't necessarily need to be hands on. "Off-field we've got a very good volunteer base, and it should be an exciting thing for someone to come in and manage our football club." Stepping up in the interim, Walker said he was prepared to fulfil the president's role "until the end of March" before seeing out the final year of his senior vice-president position. While there is still a gap to be filled, Walker said Latrobe was in a positive space, having undergone a "big internal review and restructure" under outgoing president Greg Donald. This includes an array of changes to the Demons' on-field leadership set-up. "Greg has done a lot of work in restructuring our football club over the past six months," he said. "We're fortunate that we're a very financial club and have good people who run our football and on-field departments." And while Walker believed recent changes had set the Demons on an upwards trajectory, he said the club also held a long and proud history. "We've been in existence for over 140 years and are a club that has had a lot of success. We're now on the verge of going through another period of success on-field," he said. "[The presidency] should be attractive for someone to take on as they won't have to work hard to keep us afloat." Providing a silver lining to the president search was the addition of several younger members to the club's executive, Walker said. "There were some young people who put their hand up and we need these younger, more energetic people on board," he said.
