Grand Final day has almost arrived.
The team has been announced for tomorrows reserve Grand Final against the Wynyard Football Club at the Latrobe Recreation Ground.
The opening bounce is at the earlier time of 11:35am, so don’t be late!!
The team has put together an absolute cracker finals series this year with the boys finding the right form at the right time of the season and they will be confident they can continue that fantastic form and style of football in the game that matters the most.
It’s an absolute credit to the team, that at numerous times during the year really struggled for numbers with injuries and unavailability resulting in many under 18’s doubling up and Brock calling retired players and blokes out of the can bar to pull on the boots to make up numbers to get 16 on the field!!
Rather than the club spending hundreds of dollars on a banner, only to be destroyed in seconds, we will instead be donating funds to Solider On Australia, in Respect and Honour of the late and great Ted Howe.
Soldier On’s mission is to work side by side with those who serve and protect Australia, and their families, helping them to secure their futures.
Soldier On staff work side by side with individuals and families, to strengthen resilience and develop meaningful connections with family members, mates, and the local community through a diverse range of health and wellbeing services, employment opportunities, learning and education programs, and participation in community, social, and sporting activities.
The team will also be wearing black arm bands as a mark of respect by the passing this week of Life Member and long-time trainer of the Club, Reg Peebles.
A second arm band will also be donned as we pay our respects to a well know Penguin identity and a bloke that was very well loved and cherished at the Cuprona Football Club, Grant Maynard who sadly passed away early this week also.
Our thoughts are with both families at this sad time.
Brock’s team will also be dedicating the game to a few of Penguin Football Clubs very popular loved ones that left us this year, those being Life Member, Ted Howe.
Long-time dedicated supporter and generous sponsor, Ian Wright.
Along with very popular, close mate to so many and former player and Sean Lacey who in fact played in the reserves Grand Final side of 2011.
There are still some seats on the bus that will be departing Pirtek Dial Park at 9:30am SHARP. Cost is only $10 return. If anyone grabs just a ride back to Penguin, cost is still $10 that is payable to the bus driver.
Win or lose, our clubrooms will be open post game, with teas also being available, so call in for a beer and celebrate the year that was.
We look forward to seeing you at the footy, thanks for a great year.
