The Bacchus Marsh Scorpions are celebrating 10-years on the soccer field this year.
The local club was established in 2008 and at the time fielded just three teams in the Football Federation Victoria leagues.
The following year, the number of registered teams doubled. Today, over 150 players make up 14 teams, including the Miniroos small sided soccer teams, competitive juniors and senior’s sides for both men and women.
Club Secretary, Kersty Brown said to celebrate 10-years, the club, with the help of their major sponsors, have invested in new playing kits for the entire club.
“The dynamic new design was put together by the committee and produced by SportFirst in Bacchus Marsh,” she said.
“Michelle at SportFirst made sure the design was exact, the fabric of high quality and the logos in the best position for maximum exposure.
“With major sponsors Food Works Bacchus Marsh, Bendigo Bank Bacchus Marsh and Maddingley Brown Coal the club was able to invest in the smart new look”.
Mason’s Lane Reserve is the home ground of the Bacchus Marsh Soccer Club; with teams taking to field on most Sunday’s between April and September.
“With a strong committee leading the club, dedicated volunteers and an outstanding coaching line up, the club continues to grow and produce some of the West’s finest Soccer players,” Ms Brown said.
The Scorpions train on Wednesday and Friday nights at either Mason’s Lane Reserve or Darley Community Hub.
New members are welcomed and encouraged. For more information, visit
