Round 3 Reports – 2011

Round 3 -V- Claremont at Anzac Park

Seniors

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.

Reserves

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.

Colts

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.

LINDISFARNE FOOTBALL CLUB

 

RE-ENGAGES AT GOOD SPORTS WITH LEVEL 2 ACCREDITATION

8 April 2011

The Lindisfarne Football Club has an ongoing commitment to responsible alcohol management and has recently re-engaged with the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program.  The club’s Level 2 accreditation has recently been reviewed and reinstated, allowing the club to now work towards level 3 accreditation in the program.

The program provides leadership and support to community sports clubs throughout Australia to manage alcohol responsibly. It aims to help clubs become more viable by creating a safe and friendly environment whilst addressing their duty of care obligations in relation to alcohol consumption. It is the first nationwide alcohol management program of its kind.

As part of Level 2 accreditation, we have implemented practices around responsible alcohol management including the development of safe transport strategies to ensure our members get home safely. Our facilities will continue to be smoke-free and the emphasis for player awards, fundraising, prizes and functions will not be alcohol. Food will be provided when alcohol is served and we will sell a variety of low and non-alcoholic drinks. All our bar staff will be RSA trained.

We are confident our efforts will continue to improve the environment at Lindisfarne Football Club. We are working to ensure the Club is a great place to participate and socialise for all members of our community.

The Club will be regularly monitored to ensure we comply with the program. It is the responsibility of all our members to make sure we do the right thing when drinking and enjoying ourselves.

The Good Sports program is run in Tasmania by the Australian Drug Foundation with the support of the Tasmanian Government and the Department of Health and Ageing.
