Ladies Day: Debbie King
- Thursday, 04 June 2015
This week we are celebrating the female figures that have contributed to the Subiaco Football Club with "Ladies Day" and today’s feature lady is Office Manager Debbie King.
King was originally a supporter of the club before an advertised role brought her into the club's halls.
"Originally I grew up supporting East Fremantle but as the kids got older we became a loyal Subiaco family.
"I would bring the kids to Subi Oval and watch the footy from the hill before there was a grand stand. I couldn't have predicted that the club would become such a big part of my life.
"In 2001 I saw a part-time role advertised and officially started as an employee of the club. I didn't even know it was a role at the Subiaco Football Club so when GM at the time Kim Williamson brought me in as a book-keeper it was exciting." said King
Deb has been managing the club's accounts for the last 14 years including the financial management of our biggest asset Subiaco Oval. But although the club has played a big role professionally for King she also acknowledges the social impact.
"The social scene is great amongst the club and every professional team i've been a part of along the way has gelled and bonded together for the greater good of the club,
I think a big reason to why the club is succeeding on and off the field is because of the tight knit culture. Everyone works as a team and pulls together, a lot of the duties people manage aren't covered in their titles but they do it because they want the best for the club." added King
She also acknowledged the growing involvement women play around the football club and the game as a whole.
"There's way more of a role for women in football now than there ever used to be,
"Ladies are far more interested in the game and the club nowadays as you can see on game days in the members stand,
We hope it's something that continues and women continue to feel a part of the Subiaco Football Club." added King
