We return back to the Pirtek Twin ovals here at the Dial Park precinct as we would like to welcome the East Devonport swans here for our round two encounter as each club looks to join the winners list in the senior game. Our AJ and M Construction Two Blues will certainly be looking to do this following our very disappointing loss to the strong and very polished outfit of the Burnie Dockers. The reserves had a convincing win and will be looking to back that up again today and our Unders went down by only 3 points with a shot after the siren where a goal needed for victory didn’t quite happen!
Our official opening a fortnight ago was a fantasic day with a magnificent turn out of well over 3000 people attending which kept all of our volunteers flat out all day and into the evening with the canteen and bar seeing a constant flow of customers all day!
With plenty of players avaliable for selection our coaches certainly have a task in naming their team with some boys returning from being unavailable over the easter break including Toby Skene who will be welcomed back into the senior team today with James King, Ben Hardy and Rohan Speglic also knocking on the door for selection following their great performances in the reserves opening win over the Dockers.

It’s been a very busy off season for the AJ & M Construction Penguin Football Club on and off the field as we transform from our old and rather ran down facilities in town to our absolutely fantastic state of the art facilities here at Dial Park. The Central Coast Council have been great during the process and we thank them and project manager Greg Osborne for a smooth transition as a 40 year dream has become reality! We would like to welcome all guests here today for the official opening of the complex, politicians, councillors and guests.
We would also like to welcome to the Burnie Dockers as we have three games all set to be crackers. Our playing group has had a big pre season with some fantastic numbers on the track over the summer and today all that hard work will be on show. We have some new faces around the club this year some include, Sam Mawer from Rosebery, Jared Macdonald from W.A , Beau Grundy and Matt Chamberlain from Somerset and Penguins favourite son Rodney King returning after almost two years on the sidelines with a knee injury as well as Matthew Kinch and Jack Thomas returning to the club from Hobart. Also we have a large number of last year’s under 18 premiership side now playing senior football, these boys have some exceptional talent and we are excited to what these young men have to offer as they develop. We look forward to seeing them in the Two Blues colours playing their role! Senior coach Peter Templeton has some new assistants this year, Raymond Huxtable, Matt Carrolan and Edward Wedd. Nick Rolls is again reserves coach and Daniel Baldock has taken over the head job of the under 18’s from Tim King!
