Today we host the Latrobe Demons in what will be our last home game for season 2018 and Coach Peter Templeton’s last game coaching on home soil.
Today you will notice we are wearing different guernseys in the senior game featuring pink, white and green with our Two Blue strip. This is to support and raise awareness for Huntingtons disease Tasmania. For every hot sav you purchase today we will be donating one dollar to the huntingtons disease foundation tas. So what better excuse to tuck into the hot dogs.
Finals footy for our senior side looks almost gone following our loss to the Giants last weekend in very testing conditions in the mud and rain. Luck didn’t go our way with opportunities in the last term to grab the lead but that didn’t quite happen. Like most of this season, we haven’t given up and have applied 100% to effort each week, with a large number of young, inexperienced and youthfulness in the senior team this is reality to where we will finish up this year. On the other hand our reserves are traveling well with another win on the board last weekend, a hunger to win today is evident within the core group as they eye of finals footy. Unfortunately last weekend our under 18’s had to forfeit their game with low numbers. A couple of giants boys did pull on the Two Blue guernsey to have a scratch match that we eventually won (to no avail!)
We are hoping to have a great turn up of supporters and members today as this will be their last opportunity to catch the blues at home this year! So grab a feed from the canteen and grab a beer and enjoy some what should be cracking games of footy here today at Pirtek Dial Park.
We would like to thank all of our magnificent sponsors that have again jumped on board this year. You can see our major sponsors on the boundary line fence, broadcasted over the P.A at half time and on the televisions in the clubrooms on a slide. Please thank those people if you see them and we most certainly recommend you support these businesses and people that support YOUR CLUB! Without them it’s obvious we would not exist!
Tasty Counter meals wil be available for purchase after the senior game from 5pm, with a great selection for the low price of only $10! Be sure to grab a feed and wash it down with a refreshing brew.
See you next week at Wynyard as we take on the cats for the last game of the home and away season!
