Ward Spender has been involved with Morphett Vale Football Club for the past 20 years he is a life member of our football club. Ward became involved after his sons Matt and Craig attended local primary schools in the area as progression of there football moved to start playing at Morphett Vale Football Club although his sons no longer play football due to being adults and having work commitments Ward is still heavily involved with many areas of organizing the football club, he still on both senior and junior committees decision making, set up of oval at all home grounds, cooks BBQ on match day through the junior games, opens and closes the club on match days not to mention run the bar at presentations if needed, helps organize each team manager at all age levels, at away games set up flags and banners for support and then repeats it all again on Sunday to help out with the mini’s.

Ward is always there to help never seen him refuse to help out the club or other club members when they are in need he ensures all at the club are safe at all times from umpires, officials, club members and junior/minis players. He has helped out those families in need who have struggled to pay for children to pay fees, get football boots or clothing.

On top of all Ward sponsors the club and runs his own business and finds time to spend with his family there would not be a day I could remember he hasn’t been at the club on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday. You would think during the summer he might have a rest but he is then involved in helping out at Morphett Vale Cricket Club.
