I welcome you all to ANZAC Park for what is to be a good contest between the Nu-Jet Blues and the Robins.
With a disappointing losses in round seven to Dodges Ferry, the Blues are looking forward to regaining their momentum in this, the first game played under lights for the senior club.
We wish spectators all the best and hope you enjoy this landmark game for the Blues. I’d also like to draw your attention to the signage around the ground regarding the drinking of alcohol. The Lindisfarne Football Club is working in close cooperation with the Clarence City Council, Liquor and Gaming, and Tasmania Police in curbing alcohol-related incidents at sporting events. We actively encourage barracking for, and support of, your club in the interest of Good Sports, of which the Club is a Level Two accredited organisation.
Alcohol is only permitted to be purchased and consumed in the clubrooms. A selection of hot and cold food as well as tea, coffee and soft drinks is available at the canteen.
Congratulations to Seniors player Matt Phillips (Guernsey #38) for being selected in the State U/23 squad after a sterling performance last weekend in the SFL side, being named second on ground in what was a hard fought game – especially since the U/23s had eight on the bench!. Congratulations also to my son Cam (Seniors player #14) for playing his first representative game in Tasmania in last week’s game.
Finally, I’d like to thank Shaun and Leon from Tasmanian Traffic Management for their time and efforts in managing the road closure this afternoon as well as to Jenny Howell of Clarence City Council and Brendan Smith of Tasmania Police for their assistance in making this afternoon and evening a success.

And now for some blatantly advertising for upcoming events:
Life Members, Sponsors, Premiership Players, past coaches and partners are invited to:
May 7th and 8th saw two reunions of past players at ANZAC Park. On the Saturday a large group watched the club battle Glenorchy to record an easy win in the Reserves and a hard fought win for the Nu-Jet Blues over the Magpies by 10 points. On Sunday, a reunion was held at the rooms for the U17 and U19 squads of the 1960’s. Men travelled from all around Australia, from Perth WA, Warrnambool VIC and the Gold Coast Qld. The functions were ably catered by Frank and Bev Shadwick for the Saturday and by ladies of the 60’s group on the Sunday.
Special thanks go to: My wife, Carolyn, for her 13 hours of toil on the gate and behind the bar, Meg and Brooke in the canteen, Andrew Santi for filling in everywhere, Justin Myers for the handmade schnitzels for dinner and Paul Jackson for his bar work on Saturday night. Thanks to Club stalwart Bev Shadwick for cleaning on Sunday morning before the hordes arrived and Jacko again for helping me on Sunday behind the bar. Of course a big thanks to all the past players who made last weekend so enjoyable. Barrett Dickson, Scott Godfrey, Phil Morgan, Steve Midson, Ian Pearce and Wayne Cashion deserve special mention due to their work and support over the weekend. Rest assured, boys, your Club is in good hands!
A hard fought game between the two sides resulted in some hard contests throughout all four quarters with Claremont winning the first quarter by nine points.
Some appropriate encouragement from Coach Goodwin saw the boys spark up and drive some really excellent attacking footy in the second quarter. However, not all went to plan and some inaccurate kicking saw the score line at half time being held by Lindisfarne by 10 behinds.
The long break allowed the Nu-Jet Blues some time to regroup and, with some scrappy play resulting in six goals three for Lindisfarne and the Pies netting four goals two. With only the final quarter to play, the pressure was on both teams to score. With the ball in the attacking 50 for Lindisfarne, some tight-angle shots proved to be too much and the Blues managed two goals six and the Pies four goals two. The final margin was 15 points in favour of the Blues, their third win of the season.
With a noon start, the ground looked superb, even after the rain during the week which would have closed the ground if not for some excellent work by Jamie and his team of groundsmen in the off-season in putting in some much needed drainage.
With the first game at Home for the year, the team were pumped and the game ebbed and flowed all day and, although Lindisfarne lead Claremont at the first break, the Nu-Jet Blues came off worse in the third quarter with the Magpies holding a lead of four points after the final break.
With some solid defensive work, Lindisfarne held off a strong attack and managed to hold Claremont scoreless in the final quarter. Kicking two goals, the Ressies secured their first win of the season by 11 points at the final siren.
Shaun Haberfield lead the goal kicking for Lindisfarne with three, A Clarke with two and Standen and M Ford grabbing one each.
Getting Colts players has been an issue for both Claremont and Lindisfarne over the last five or so years as more clubs vie for our talented youth. I give credit to Shane Johnson and his committee for putting considerable efforts into searching for a team leading up to this season.
As a result of negotiations with the Clarence District and Junior Football Clubs over the last six weeks or so, Lindisfarne has bolstered its numbers by many young Clarence players.
With a much larger pool of players, Lindisfarne can now look to fielding a Colts side for the rest of the season. I’d like to thank Kim Farrow, Richard Mulligan, Budgie, Chilli, Fitzy, the parents and the boys for making this union a success. It provides a pathway for young boys to play football each week and ensure community football continues to progress.
The Lindisfarne Football Club has been given special dispensation for the Colts side to wear red shorts at Home and the CDFC socks at all games for the 2011 season. Thanks go to Angus Adams and the executive of the SFL as well as Scott Wade from AFL Tasmania for making the transition easy.
