The AGM kicks off at 5pm at the Cavanbah Centre next Wednesday.

The Byron Bay Magpies AFL club are holding their AGM next week and are inviting anyone interested in being part of the club to come along.

‘We want to build momentum going into next season,’ Magpie Daniel Tiffin said.

‘We also have a friendly kick around on Wednesday evenings in summer,’ he said.

After dominating the competition for a number of years, the club couldn’t get numbers for a men’s team last year. 

‘We have never been in that position before,’ he said.

Numbers look good at this stage for 2023, but the club is still on the lookout for any new interest.

‘The kick around is a good opportunity for people to get a feel for the club,’ he said.

The AGM kicks off at 5pm at the Cavanbah Centre next Wednesday October 26.
