Welcome to all our players, sponsors, supporters and volunteers for season 2019.
The Club had some on field success in 2018 with teams making finals except for A Grade, B Grade, U13’s and U14 Girls. However our Women’s A Grade led by Peter McCorquodale bought home the silverware in the Div 3 Grand Final. The Women’s team finished minor premiers and were undefeated. This year we continued to grow in women and girls football with two teams in each competition and a U18 girls side to compete in 2019, their efforts have been exceptional which has been born out by their success
I would like to thank Simon Hughes for his efforts in 2018 and wish him well in his future endeavors, at this point I would like to welcome Guy Ridgway to our Club as Club/A grade Coach and look forward to Guy developing our young group and making them ready for finals in 2019.
The commitment of the Executive and the Management Committee have turned the Club around in 2018 from a governance and management point of view. We have turned the corner with our accounts, player management, coaches and transparency within the Executive and Management Committee and this has not gone unnoticed by the SFL and other clubs.
Through the guidance of Guy Ridgway as the A Grade/Club Coach and supporting coaches from the other teams through to Sub Juniors the Club looks set to be heading in the direction of on field success which will hopefully not be faraway and I truly believe this to be the case.
I look forward to working with the new members of the Management Committee and the fresh ideas they will bring to season 2019.
The success of the Club in the future will lay in the commitment of us all to the players, support staff, trainers and committee and to volunteer where ever we can.
The Club has turned the corner and I, the Executive and Management Committee will meet all challenges head on in the future, so lets all work together to drive this great Club forward.
