Round 8 Preview & President Update

I welcome you all to ANZAC Park for what is to be a good contest between the Nu-Jet Blues and the Robins.Nu_jet blues

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.

Round 1 Senior Report 2011

In what was Adrian Goodwin’s first game as new Club Coach, and a long pre-season for the players, the opening game proved to set the future for 2011.
Starting slowly with the wind, the boys, under new Club Captain Justin Myers, lead by only four points at the first change.
The second quarter showed the Nu-Jet Blues in better light with Nick McWilliams adding another goal to his tally with newcomer Justin “Maz” Marriott blasting his way around all parts of the ground and booting some massive kicks to penetrate the forward line.  Maz went on to kick five majors for the game with Nicko kicking four.  Michael “Pup” Clark was sensational in contests,  Justin Myers showed leadership though demonstration.  An unselfish handpass to Assistant Coach Marriott from Cam Potter after taking a contested mark 40m out directly in front resulted in no score as the siren sounded as soon as Maz took the ball.  Brothers Brody and Matt Phillips showed their respective talents, and Justin “Froggy” Fielding did some excellent ground work and Paul Jackson ably undertook the second ruck and forward roles with a newly-honed Ricky Batt proving a hard-contesting player in our back line.
With the Blues 20 points up at the last break, they managed to outscore the Hawks against the wind with the Blues ending four goals up over the Hawks at the final siren.

We look forward to taking on Cygnet at their Slab Rd home next week.

Round 13 Colts Report

Saturday morning the colts travelled to Boyer to take on the undefeated New Norfolk.
 
In what was always going to be a tough game, we were reduced to 17 players by the start of the match with some of the boys succumbing to injury and work commitments.

To the boys credit they never dropped their heads and even though New Norfolk ran out easy winners by 150+ pts we gained some positives going forward.
 
Better players for the day included Cam Potter through the midfield, Shaun Frogson & Kieren Iles down back while the 2 ruckmen Raeden Smedley and Dave Cruse both gave massive efforts.
 
Next Week we take on Dodges Ferry at Anzac Park, and with the return of key players it promises to be a close game.

Round 12 Colts Report

Last weekend’s game at home was the rematch of the Colts’ first win in four years against Triabunna earlier in the year.

We knew last Saturday’s game was going to be a tough affair, with several of our key players out through injury.

Tribaunna started hard at the ball and continued that way for the rest of the game.  The first quarter was disastrous for us, but, to their credit, our boys fought back through the next three quarters with some excellent football and never let up.  Our under-strength side battled well but, unfortunately, was unable to make much of a dent into a well-structured and hard playing Roos side.

The boys travel to Boyer this week to tackle New Norfolk.  With key players returning to the side we look confident that, by playing to our strengths and structures, we can give good account of ourselves.

Best players last week were: L Alsford, C Potter, J Whittenbury, J Bannister, B Brown and J Sullivan
