Round 2 Vs Huonville 2013

The Lindisfarne Nu-Jet Two Blues went into their round 2 clash with 3 changes from our disappointing loss to Kingborough. Jordan Watson, Declan Crawford and Matt Stevenson came into the senior line up after pleasing performances in the Reserves. Great feeling to be back on the home turf at Anzac Park, up against a competitive Huonville outfit.

After jumping out of the blocks, the boys went into quarter time with a handy 26 point lead: 5.4 34 to Huonville 1.2 8.

Half time saw the lads with a lead of 34 points and looking to break the game open 9.12 66 to Huonville 5.2 32. Key play markers Nick Braslin, Dexter Bertoldo and Sam Proctor were all finding plenty of the footy.

The last half saw the boys really take control in the midfield and open up a match winning lead. The combination of Swan and Marriot up forward was providing plenty of headaches for the Lions defenders. By 3/4 time, the Two Blues had opened up a sizeable 47 point lead.

With plenty of midfield rotations our fitness and skill levels improved as the game went on and this was evident on the score board.

The game finished with the Two Blues running out eventual 61 point winners. Ruckman Todd Willing dominated the ruck contests all day and earned himself BOG. The ever reliable duo of David Clark and Nick Hobden showed plenty of dash and they repelled any attack that went into the back half. While the coaching staff was pleased with the result there is certainly a lot of room for improvement after our first 2 rounds of footy. This week we take on Cygnet @ Cygnet which promises to be a very tough encounter

Reserves Mid-season Report – 2012

We have just hit the half way point in the season with eight games down with another eight to play. We find ourselves with six wins and two losses and sitting third on the ladder and about to go into a game with New Norfolk that will decide second spot.

As a reserves coach it is pleasing to see a number of players who started in the reserves go up to seniors and play good football.  Brenton ‘Pup’ Allie, Dexter ‘luigi’ Bertoldo, Josh ‘Squish’ Hobden, Scott ‘the Eagle’ Bester, Leigh ‘Ben’s Brother’ Milbourne and Stuart ‘Bro’ Clark have all made the transition flawlessly when the opportunity arrived.  A special mention should go to Jimmy ‘the new JM’ Mitchell who as a sixteen year old made his debut for the seniors this year.  I would expect in the second half of the year one or two other reserves players will get the call up.

Up forward we have good contributions from a number of players. Jack ‘One Direction’ Anning continues to impress, kicking goals and being elusive. Shaun ‘Head’ Haberfield has given us a target across half forward and Henry ‘H’ Pfeiffer pops up and kicks his couple a game. 

Across the mid field we have struggled to win stoppages and be accountable against the better sides.  Josh ‘Yonna’ McWilliams has tiredly worked in the ruck.  Danny ‘nut’ Wignall has provided us with plenty of drive and Simon ‘Macca’ McCarthy has continually been one of our better players. Matthew ‘Howeller’ Howell continue to improve with every game.

Down back we have held strong on most occasions and Trent ‘Dozer’ Clarke has been solid all year.  Providing plenty of run and stopping power. 

We need to continually focus on our intensity.  When we are up, we are a good running side who wins contested football. But when we get challenged we struggle to respond.  We need to find a way to wrestle momentum back our way when it is against us. Individuals need to lift and the leadership blokes need to find it in themselves to produce more efforts, set the scene that we won’t be happy in this type of situation and lead by example.

Moving forward to the second half of the year it will be pleasing to see the return of Dave ‘Caveman’ Wooley, Phil ‘Philphy’ Ashlin and hopefully Michael ‘the Count’ VanBeest returning from injury and Brodie Phillips returning from his sojourn to the USA as a Mormon door knocking missionary.  We should also have an influx of senior players returning from injury which should help the reserves side out as they will either come through the reserves or will provide us with players dropping back.

At the start of the year if you said this side will be six and two I would have been very happy with that result, but I believe this side is more than capable of doing better.  There is still a lot of improvement in this side and my aim is to get the most out of the players every week.

Round 5 Reports – 2011

 

Round 5 Reports -V- Huonville at Huonville

The Lindisfarne Football Club wishes to announce Co-Op Toyota of Argyle St as a new major sponsor for the Nu-Jet Blues for the 2011 Season.  Co-Op have been supporting football in southern Tasmania for decades and continue to do so with this signing.  With Toyota as the naming sponsor for the AFL Season, it provides a natural space for Co-Op Toyota to fill in our league in Southern Tasmania.  Please contact Co-Op for all your new cars needs.  The Club thanks Brad Costelloe, Stuart Hawkesford and the whole team from servicing, spare parts, retail, fleet and administration at Co-Op and we look forward to a long future together.  Remember: when you thinks cars – think Co-Op.

I’d also like to welcome all the past LFC players who have come in from interstate this week who are watching today’s game and wish them well.

Seniors

After a very disappointing first half, which saw the Nu-Jet Blues trailing by three goals, a good spray from Coach Goodwin got the Seniors to regroup.  With a greater determination, the boys met the Lions front-on and proved that the Blues are in this season to win.  The tenacity and fitness which is a hallmark of this season’s group won out on the day.  Even with the siren blowing twice as Mitch Williamson took the final kick in both the 3rd and final quarters.  Although a small margin separated the teams at the end of the match, it proves that Lindisfarne is a true contender for finals this year.  Leading goal-kickers were Williamson with five and Marriott with three.  Excellent performances from “Pup” Clark, “Squish” Hobden, Flood and “I get bums on seats” Batt.  We look forward to playing the Glenorchy Magpies this week at home in front of supporters, sponsors and our past player visitors.

Reserves

The Reserves played some hard-fought football in a low-scoring game.  With the score on the cutting-edge throughout the whole game, the 30 minute final quarter saw the Lions boot the final goal in a closely contested match to equalise the scores.  Unfortunately, the siren sounded on the final bounce to see a rare draw.  Great, competitive football was the winner on the day with Dave Woolley, Dex Bertoldo, Chris Turner and “Tonguer” Clarke excelling.

Colts

The newly-formed Lindisfarne Colts suffered their first defeat for 2011 at the hands of the Lions last week.  Even with seasoned Colts campaigners Jye Bannister, Nathon Brown, Jordan Watson and Jordan McCullum, the Nu-Jet Colts were underdone against a more experienced side.  The hard-playing Huonville boys showed the new recruits the style of play which wins SFL competitions:  tenacity.  However, Jacob Walker, Jordan Rogerson and Arnie Kelly proved their worth and played well against a style of play against which they were not accustomed.  The young bloods of the day have learned from last week and hope to make a good impression this week against the Magpies at home.  

Round 11 Seniors Report

Last week’s game was important to both teams as we were looking to consolidate our position in the top six and Brighton needed the win to push up the ladder to vie for a spot in the finals later in the season.

We started the game very well, jumping out of the blocks and sustaining plenty of pressure on Brighton when they had possession of the ball.  This enabled us to kick six goals in the opening quarter and come to the quarter-time break with a handy lead of 21 points.  From then on, I think the game was pretty much in the balance with Brighton throwing everything at us.  However, to our guys’ credit, we persisted and won plenty of the ball in general play which enabled us to go on and record an 18 point victory.

With lots of new faces and young players in the team, it is pleasing to see us improve week by week and stand up to the pressure of senior football.

I also think the attitude of the players toward their football and what the group wants to achieve has improved and has been fantastic.

Best players were:  Brodie Phillips, Nathan Barton, Justin Myers, Gav Quirk, Brad Turner, Dexter Bertoldo and Kase Miller.

Round 7 Seniors Report

In what was a good contest all day, I felt that we were a little sloppy with our skills which resulted in too many turnovers.  Our decision making at times was poor as we put ourselves under too much pressure during the match.

The first quarter saw us kicking into a slight breeze but we had plenty of the footy but struggled to put scoreboard pressure n the opposition, coming into quarter time with a 12 point lead.

The second quarter was much the same: giving our forwards plenty of opportunity but we failed to convert; kicking two goals and eight behinds, which allowed Claremont to stay in touch.

The second half was neck and neck with us finally putting a match-winning lead of 20 points halfway through the final term.

It wasn’t pretty, but it was good to come away with the victory.

This week is another tough challenge; fronting up against Huonville at Huonville.

Best player were:  D Scott, J Myers, J White, N Barton, D Bertoldo, and S Habberfield with J Tubb booting three goals up forward.
