Today we welcome all our sponsors to Robertson Oval for our clash with a resurgent Turvey Park. Without sponsors our club simply wouldn’t exist so if you get the opportunity today thank them.
Our Long weekend of football proved to be positive with first grade and our 17’s securing the 4 points while our reserves have some work to do.
The 17’s started well and played there most complete 4 quarter effort to win by 13 goals. Will De Jong bagged 5 goals and was well served by Josh Beer and Fraser Yates. The boys currently sit in 6th spot.
The reserves again forgot to start the game when the siren sounded and quickly found themselves chasing tail again one good quarter got the boys back in the game however couldn’t finish it off and went down by 30 points. Lonnie Bance played well again as did all the back line. Jake Hodge racked up another 30 possessions and Matt Noonan wound back the clock playing 3 quarters on ball and influencing the game.
First grade produced a great team performance and while the game wasn’t one to show the grandkids the boys got the job done. Multiple goal kickers with Niko Ryan Jim Carroll and John Buchanan snagging 3 each. Nathan Cook played his best game of the year and took his mug to envy both Saturday and Sunday night. Kewy showed why will be an asset at the back end of the year and Coach Campbell led from the front again.
Finally a Home game today ensure we support all grades and netball then pop in to the Clubrooms for a quiet ale or two.
