On Saturday, 30 July 2016 we celebrate Sebastian “Seb” Parker’s 200th open-age club game with the Pennant Hills Demons. 2016 is Seb’s 17th season playing with the Senior Club. Although he technically played his 200th in his last game a fortnight ago against UTS Bats, the occasion of the Club’s annual “Back to the Ern Day”, is a fitting time and venue to acknowledge this significant achievement.
This weekend, Round 15, the Club returns to its traditional home, Ern Holmes Oval (aka Pennant Hills No 2) in the annual Back to the Ern and Past Players Day which will feature four blockbuster matches and the chance for past players to catch up and watch some great local football while enjoying some social conviviality. The Committee of the Pennant Hills AFC is pleased to Welcome all past players, friends and relatives and trust that you enjoy the day, the football and the good company.
Pennant Hills Demons JAFC is one of our most successful junior feeder clubs. The club's alumni includes our current first grade captain Tom Angel, as well as a host of other superstars such as Swans captain Keiren Jack.

This weekend we celebrate Luke ‘Booker’ Turner’s 100th open-age club game with the Pennant Hills Demons. 2016 is Luke’s 11th season playing with the Senior Club. He will play his 100th game on 16 July 2016 in the Round 14 Division One match against UTS Bats at Waverley Oval. A Premier Division player in 2009, Luke has, however, played most of his footy with the Division One side where he has been a consistent performer in what he describes as a “fairly disjointed footy career.” For Luke, footy is not his only sporting passion but has had to compete over the years with his love for Ultimate Frisbee, which has taken him all around the world. He is a popular player and personality, something of a free spirit, and is universally known around the Club as ‘Booker Turner’, ‘Booker T’ or simply ‘Booker’
