After a week of with the spilt round our men’s teams will be nice and refreshed and ready for today’s battle with central coast neighbour, the Ulverstone Robins. As the season rolls around so very quickly this is our second last home game and today will be our lady blues last home game for the year as they eye a finals birth over the coming weeks. Unfortunately last weekends scheduled game against the giants resulted in a forfeit for the girls so they will be super pumped for today’s game so stick around after the senior men and support the girls! We can’t thank women’s coach Bruce Howard enough for his efforts over the past couple of years, Bruce has recently stepped down. Michael Marshall will now be filling the position for the remainder of the season.
Congratulations to under 16 Ben Callaghan who made his senior debut against the Swans in our last game and celebrating win to go with it! Ben like all of our young brigade is a super talent and we look forward to seeing more of him playing senior football! The future is bright!
The robins sit on top of the ladder for a reason, they are a superb team and would no doubt be favorites to go back to back this year so Today is going to be a big challange for our young team. Our reserves will be fresh also and coming off a nice win they have full confidence they can turn things around after a disappointing loss to the robins in our last encounter on Anzac day.
Thanks to Roger! for putting on a fantasic show as Nicole hosted why did I wear that at her function! It was a great night and as they do quite well James King and Nathan Russell tore the dance floor to pieces!
