McQueen Group new Club Major Sponsor
The Old Scotch Football Club is delighted to announce that McQueen Group is its new major sponsor.
The McQueen Group is a boutique financial advice business led by three Scotch old boys - Angus McQueen (1991), Nick Gunner (1979) and Nowaki McQueen-Tokita (2000). For over 20 years McQueen Group has been advising Australian families and professionals on how to grow and protect their wealth.

McQueen provides advice and coaching in all areas of personal and business finance, which includes financial mapping, accounting, superannuation and insurance, and they also manage mortgages and personal loans.
The relationship has a performance based component to it. The Club will financially benefit from any Old Scotch members who utilize the services of McQueen Group.
If you’re looking to take charge of growing and protecting your wealth in 2017, then Angus, Nick and Nowaki would love to speak to you. Call today for a chat and let them help you meet your 2017 goals. 1300 856 765.

Former MP Tim Fischer guest of honour at ANZAC Round pre-game luncheon
In partnership with Monash Blues Football Club and the Camberwell RSL, we are hosting a pre-game luncheon and on ground ceremony prior to the round 2 match against Monash Blues at the Camberwell Sportsground on Saturday 22 April.
With Australia’s greatest citizen (according to John Howard) General Sir John Monash being a tangible link between our clubs it seems logical that we should honour the legend of General Sir John Monash at a pre-game luncheon prior to the game. We are delighted that Tim Fischer MP has agreed to be guest of honour at this auspicious occasion. Tim is leading a drive to see Monash posthumously elevated to the rank of Field Marshal.
Further details regarding the luncheon will follow in due course.
