The Penguin Football Club are back this weekend for Round 8 NWFL Football following last week’s bye.
The senior women will kick the day off for the club at the Devonport Oval against the Magpies. This is the last roster game for the season for the women and its an absolute must win for the girls to keep their finals chances alive as a loss will cement the end of their season. Tayla Marshall up forward will be one of the main ingredients to get the team over the line with her accurate and strong goal kicking ability that she brings to the side. Good Luck Girls.
The under 18’s will start things off at the Latrobe Recreation Ground as our men battle off against the Demons. A win for the Two Blues in the game will place them nicely on the ladder in third spot below Devonport and Burnie.
Our reserves return to the field for the first time since their first loss of the season against the Magpies and this is an absolute must win for their chances to finish on top of the table. Daniel Oates has been outstanding up forward for the team this year currently sitting in third spot for reserves goal kicking he is closely followed by Jack Weller who has provided plenty of assistance in the forward 50.
Connor Bramich will make his long awaited debut for the club following his injury sustained on the eve of the season after a big pre-season and veteran Jarrod Watling will return to the team following his injury that has sidelined him for a month.
The Seniors are unchanged following their very narrow loss to Devonport and ready to prove a point on the eve of finals with two games to go. Jack Templeton has been outstanding up forward this season as he sits in third spot for league goal kickers in 2020 and will be looking to add to his tally on Saturday afternoon with some quality ball delivery and usage from the teams Mids.
Toby Skene’s move to the back line has added some extra speed, flare and experience to the back line in recent weeks and with the likes of Sam Mitchell, Jordan Wood, Will Dau and James King the backs are a sound unit. Liam Viney and Zach Walkers pace have been major strengths for the team with superb delivery and decision making they bring.
