It is with deep regret that we inform you today of the passing of a titan of the Emmanuel Football Club in Nick “Klinger” Pirpiris.

“Klinger” passed away this morning after battling  various cancer’s over a number of years.
He played many games with Emmanuel and served on the executive committee for a number of years. He also had a stint at Oakleigh VFA before returning to the Krusherdome to finish of his career.

As you would expect he fought the brave fight to the very end and died peacefully surrounded by family and friends

Rest In Peace Klinger. We’ll see you on the other side.

OAFC would like to pass on our deepest condolences to the family and his former teammates.

Vale Steve Miller

Oakleigh AFC has lost past player Steve Miller last Friday after a long illness. Steve played his football with Oakleigh Sacred Heart for 117 games from 1980 to 1988 and played in the premiership team in 1984 and came 3rd in the B&F of that year. He also coached the 1981 under 15 team at Oakleigh SH. In recent years, Steve played bowls at the South Oakleigh Bowling Club. He will be missed by many from both clubs and mates from over the years. The funeral will be at the Boyd Chapel at Springvale Cemetery on Friday August 25th @ 11am and afterwards South Oakleigh Bowls Club.


Oakleigh Amateurs had the pleasure of hosting the USA Liberty womens team at the Krusherdome at Scammell Reserve on Wednesday night. USA Liberty were in town for the AFL International Cup and came with a squad of one mens team and two womens teams, quite a contingent for a trip down under, and, from all reports, have a had a fantastic time enjoying the local hospitality. The Krushers were more than happy to be a part of that and welcomed our new friends from the US with open arms. Hearing the Star Spangled Banner ring out across Scammell Reserve is not something that happens often.

The match itself was essentially a friendly practice match, on paper at least, but the Liberty are a competitive bunch and had come to play. The Oaks were, sadly, a little under-manned with 10 players missing from their regular line-up and hadn’t played for three weeks since their season finished. But they went out and had a go and although outgunned on the night still gave it their best. Both sides put on a pretty good display of footy although, at times, it was a bit hard to see what was happening due to the lighting at the ground being inadequate. Still, the players didn’t let that get in the way of a contest and went at it like it was a grand final. The umpires did a wonderful job as did the support crews for both teams and the volunteers who helped out on the night.

The BBQ was kept sizzling most of the night, the bar enjoyed a steady stream of customers and, after the game, Krushers merchandise flew off the shelves as the Americans grabbed souvenirs of their visit to Oakleigh. In the end a fun night was had by all concerned and the Liberty have promised to return during the next International Cup…And they’ll be warmly received when they do return.

Oakleigh 0-2-2 v USA Liberty 4-9-33

Krusher in the Big V

Steph Wood

One of Oakleigh’s best women footballers Steph Wood played a superb game for the big V today and was very solid as a back pocket. Amazing stoppages and clearances under pressure. Steph was only rested for a few minutes the whole game where the coach described her performance as “marvellous”. Lots of mentions from the commentators and an overall amazing effort which all Krusher fans should be proud of as she was chosen from the 120 selected women. Congratulations to Steph, so glad you’re a Krusher girl.

Vale – Robert Sharp

Oakleigh AFC has lost a life member in Robert Sharp recently. Robert played his football with Oakleigh Sacred Heart for 54 games from 1982 to 1991. Team manager, goal umpire, timekeeper are just some of the many tasks he has undertaken around the club. Daicos as he was nicknamed due to a freakish goal in his early footy days, was one of the many characters in and around the club. He will be missed by many from the club and mates from over the years, especially his children Benjamin and Emily.

Funeral Service is on 18th April 2pm at Tobin Brothers, 505 Princes Highway, Noble Park
